Goodwood Baptist Church (GBC) is a Christ-centred and Bible-based church in Goodwood, Cape Town, which aims to equip its members to live a gospel-focused life. The church exists by the grace of God and for the glory of God, which is the ultimate purpose of all its activities. GBC seeks to glorify the God of Scripture by promoting his worship, edifying and equipping the saints, evangelising the nations, growing and strengthening his church, encouraging biblical fellowship among believers, and ministering to the needy, thus proclaiming and defending God’s perfect law and glorious gospel of grace throughout the world.

Goodwood Baptist Church holds to the great doctrines of the Reformation. The GBC family comprises people from a variety of backgrounds. From the very outset, the focus of the church’s services and ministry has been unashamedly God’s word above all else. Public worship is conducted simply with a clear focus on preparing God’s people to hear God’s word. The church seeks to implement ministries that present the gospel clearly to all age-groups.

Living Stones

The church’s objectives are to glorify Christ, the Head of the church; to proclaim the word of God as recorded in the Old and New Testaments; to encourage and support the proclamation of the said word of God to the ends of the earth in accordance with Matthew 28:19; and to provide instruction in the word of God and fellowship for believers, thus building them up in the faith.

GBC desires to foster an environment where members minister to one another and to the community, not only for growing the body in numbers, but also for maturing the saints.
