Our vision is to establish over 20 thriving churches in the 12 countries of Southern Africa by 2020 so that we can fulfill our lifetime dream of establishing a Bible Talk within walking distance of every African.

God is doing amazing things at the University of Johannesburg

It has been amazing to see how God has worked at the start of the second semester at the University of Johannesburg (UJ).

At the beginning of the semester we got together as a Joburg Church of Christ campus ministry and decided to do a Jericho Walk. We gathered every morning at 7am to walk around the campus, praying for God to do some that we have never seen before. During the day we went out inviting people to our first Bible Discussion of the semester.

Come the Friday Bible Discussion the 10 UJ campus students had 63 friends out! A lot of students have started studying the bible and are busy making decisions to become disciples. God is working in a powerful way.

Purity Conference

ICOC #International church of Christ

As Christians, we are constantly striving to live pure and holy lives in an increasingly impure world. Therefore we are very excited about the upcoming Purity Conference weekend happening in Johannesburg from Saturday, 10 August.

The Saturday will be a full-day conference presented by Tom and Carol Nuelle. It will focus on providing biblical perspective and practical answers to victory over impurity in your own life and will teach you how to help others.

On the Sunday we will all come together for a church-wide service. There will be a 10am service for Families (Kids Zone provided) and a 2pm service for Campus and Singles.

Swamp Camp, a youth camp aimed at helping children and teens build up strong relationships with God, started back in 1998 with the church in Altanta, Georgia (USA).

Johannesburg: 1150 disciples have 2380 at church

The Johannesburg church held 'bring Your Neighbour days' across the five regions entitled "The bread of Life". All the members were encouraged to bring freshly baked bread products and set them on tables surrounding the hall. Bread Makers were set up at the entrance to the auditorium so that the smell of freshly baking bread greeted each person as the entered the hall.

The sermon focused on Jesus as the "Bread of Life" and as much as the staple product of bread is necessary for our bodies, so to having a relationship with Jesus Christ was essential for our souls.
