  • Overview
    “South Africa is the most diverse nation in Africa, encompassing a vast array of cultures and languages. Along with South Africa’s population from black African ancestry (80 percent), the country hosts Africa’s largest communities of people from European, Asian, and multiethnic descent. Its constitution recognizes eleven official languages: two from European origins (English and Afrikaans, a derivative of Dutch) and nine from indigenous Bantu origins. South Africa’s landscape is just as diverse, containing everything from dry deserts, to high mountains, to lush coastlands, with typical African wildlife populating this dramatic scenery. The diversity is also seen in the gulf between its classes. Although South Africa has the largest economy and the fifth highest per capita income in Africa, almost 25 percent of its population lives in abject poverty, surviving on less than $1.25 per day. Multiplying the complexity of the nation, South Africa’s democratic government is housed in three separate capital cities: Pretoria (executive), Bloemfontein (judicial), and Cape Town (legislative).The South African government permits freedom of religion, and in recent years, the country’s emphasis on diversity has taken on pluralistic overtones in elevating non-Christian faiths such as Islam, Hinduism, and ethnic African religions. In spite of these relatively new developments, plus older issues like the lingering effects of apartheid, the church in South Africa has a rich history of mission endeavors throughout all of Africa and even the world. Biblical Christianity remains vital and strong in some places and continues to be an influential force in South Africa. Doctrinal, racial, and spiritual unity are needed, though, for a Church with the great mission challenges that come with living in a post-Christian society” (

Worship through Song

Sunday Worship Set 


Preparing for the Lords Day

Our Sermon Text for This Sunday: Galatians 3:27-4:7 (The entire text may not be covered this Sunday) 

“27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave[a] nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.

I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything, 2 but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. 3 In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world. 4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. 6 And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.”
