Early 2010, a burden for the northern suburbs of Johannesburg climaxed in the hearts of Tyrell Haag and Michael Rogers. At the time Michael was very involved with his home church, Antioch Bible Church, and Tyrell was the Associate Pastor at Constantia Park Baptist Church. These two friends met regularly to discuss these things and after much prayer they decided that it would be a privilege to join together in planting a church in the spiritually dark area of northern Johannesburg.
Three churches in all were approached to be planting churches, Constantia Park Baptist Church, Antioch Bible Church and Brackenhurst Baptist Church. Brackenhurst Baptist Church has taken the main responsibility for being the mother planting church.
Heritage Baptist held its first service on 2 January 2011, after just over one year we constituted on 5 February 2012.
Heritage Baptist Church is a young, growing church that loves Jesus, loves the Bible and loves people. We seek to faithfully proclaim and practically live out God’s Word.
We are a multi-ethnic, multi-racial church with members from all socio-economic brackets and across all age groups. We believe that the church is to be a diverse community reflecting the glorious reality of the Gospel that reconciles us to God and to one another.
Heritage Baptist Church exists by the grace of God and for the glory of God, which is the ultimate purpose of all our activities. We seek to glorify the God of Scripture by promoting his worship, edifying and equipping the saints, evangelising the nations, planting and strengthening churches, calling other assemblies to biblical faithfulness and purity, 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.
