Bible study starting Thursday, May 3 at 7pm

You are invited to attend a Bible study on May 3 at 7pm at the following address:

26 Coniston Road (corner of Lavenham and Coniston)

Rondebosch, 7700

The Bible study is intended to generate interest in a potential church plant in the southern suburbs of Cape Town towards the end of 2012 or beginning of 2013.  It will be under the supervision of the Bellville Reformed Church (http://www.gkbellville.org/) and the Reformed Churches of South Africa (http://www.gksa.org.za/).  Like any church, the RCSA has a statement concerning the system of truth she believes the Bible teaches.  The RCSA believes that a faithful summation of what the Bible teaches can be found in Ecumenical Creeds of the early church and the Three Forms of Unity from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries (http://urclearning.org/what-we-believe/).

Our vision for the church plant is that it be an English-speaking ministry hoping to attract people from diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds.  In keeping with the best of the Reformed tradition, we hope to plant a church in accordance with God’s Word; where Christ, his Gospel and his church is front and center in the Christian life; where God serves us through the preaching of his Word and administration of the sacraments (Baptism and the Lord’s Supper); where our response in worship is governed by Scripture and is one of reverence and awe; where sinners are saved and Christians are built up in their faith; so that we might in turn love each other, and our neighbor; where family worship is prized and the Christian faith is actively handed down to the next generation; where home visitation and active pastoral care are integral to the life of the church.

Would you like to know more about such a church?  We would love to answer your questions and help you learn more from God’s Word.
