Faye Chin was one of the first members of the Sunday School at Chinese Baptist Church, which started as a mission of First Baptist Church in Houston, Texas. She grew up in the church, which was composed of key members that stayed at the church from the First Baptist Church, including Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Lloyd. Drawing from her experiences at the church and the dynamic of church members who attended the church, Mrs. Chin provided invaluable information regarding Chinese Baptist Church’s beginning years. She also brought the First Baptist Church’s 144th anniversary book, which has a few pages dedicated to describing the foundation and beginnings of Chinese Baptist Church. There were some mistakes in the book regarding Chinese Baptist Church that Mrs. Chin corrected on photocopies.
