In 1978, under the commission of the Baptist Convention of Hong Kong, Baptist Oi Kwan Social Service (BOKSS) was founded by Hong Kong Baptist University (formerly known as the Hong Kong Baptist College) and came into service in 1982. We firstly began our community services in Wan Chai district and Hong Kong Island. Over 30 years of development, we have expanded our services to districts including Tsuen Wan, Kwai Chung, Tsing Yi, Cheung Sha Wan, Mongkok, Jordan, To Kwa Wan, Choi Hung, Sha Tin and Tai Po, etc.
We provide a wide range of services such as Integrated Children, Youth and Family Services, Pre-Primary School, Integrated Elderly Services, Integrated Mental Health Services, Clinical Psychological and Counseling Services, Training and Employment Service, Catering. Poverty Alleviation and Short-term Food Assistance Service etc. Our service target range from infant to elderly.
Since April 2009, BOKSS has been incorporated under the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance and is one of the tax-exempted charitable institutions under the Inland Revenue Ordinance.

Three solid circles on the top represent three heads, expressing “a group of people”.
At the bottom, a cross joints three bodies together which
symbolises people are linked by the love of God.
We, as the servants, are reminded to witness and share Christ’s love in the communities as a group of redeemed Christians.
For the service targets, this logo is a symbol of hope - the love of Christ still exists and is shared among us in the communities.
