History

The Baptist Church of Boksburg, affectionately known as Boksburg Baptist, was ‘born’ in August 1888 in a room of an establishment known as Nobby’s Bar, destined to become the hotel’s Billiard Room.

However the church has been in the habit of celebrating its establishment from the date of the constitution of the trust deed in 1898, culminating in the celebration of the centenary in 1998.
Although the church has a long history, its beginnings were in contemporary surroundings, being accessible to the community and this has never changed.

And so it remains that The Boksburg Baptist Church is a dynamic, growing, young church with a mature history based in the inner city of Boksburg.
Boksburg Baptist is a church situated at the heart of Boksburg with the unusual position of being fairly close to a few varied residential areas. Although we have been in existence for over 110 years we still seek to be contemporary and relevant to the times in our presentation of the unchanging word of God.
We seek to be a family church caring for the needs of all our members, adherents and visitors from Sunday School and youth meetings to ministries focusing on our more senior folk.

With our focus on God’s word, fellowship and mission we aim to be obedient to God’s call to make disciples as well as giving folk the opportunity to exercise their gifts in service.

We are a community of believers who strive to be holy, but not too heavenly minded to be of no earthly good and we invite you to join with us and experience the warmth, friendship and fellowship of believers who seek to live lives to the full in the knowledge of Jesus Christ and the life we share in Him.
