Christ Baptist Church (CBC) was founded as Pietersburg Baptist Church in the 1960’s, and was established as a multi-ethnic, English-speaking church. CBC is a member of the Baptist Union of South Africa (BUSA); however, it maintains its full expression and authority solely under the lordship of Jesus Christ. The church is committed to exalting the glory of God and the supremacy of Jesus Christ through a commitment to expository preaching, focused discipleship, theological worship, passionate evangelism, training of men, and cross-cultural missions.
Ever since its inception, CBC has been committed to the serious verse-by-verse exposition of the Scriptures going through various books of the Old and New Testament. We are committed to a thorough exposition and understanding of God’s Word, as that is where we get our knowledge and discernment.
We take very seriously the words of the apostle Paul in Ephesians 4:11–13 in raising up and equipping the saints for the work of service, for the building up of the body of Christ until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. Our leadership is committed to personal discipleship, and ensuring that every member of CBC begins a robust and passionate path towards the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
In addition, CBC has a passion for training of men for the pastorate, and through Christ Seminary—a ministry of CBC—we are investing in men from Southern Africa, as well as from other regions, and are providing them with the necessary skills and spiritual formation to be effective pastors, preachers, and shepherds in the churches where God has placed them.
CBC has been involved in evangelism and church strengthening in Mozambique for over twenty years. We have invested in the churches along the Limpopo corridor, and through this we are seeing the spread of the gospel and changed lives in very rural contexts.
