The Church in Cape Town
The church in Cape Town, South Africa, warmly welcomes you. We are believers in the Lord Jesus Christ who have personally received Him as our Savior. He is the most excellent and enjoyable Person. We love Him and endeavor to give Him the first place in all things. We rejoice to be cleansed by the blood of Jesus, God’s Son, born again of the Father’s divine life, and filled with the Holy Spirit.
The church in Cape Town isn't our name - it's our description. As such, it's an inclusive title, not an exclusive one. We gather together simply as believers of the Lord in this city, and we receive as our brothers and sisters all who believe in Jesus Christ. Likewise, we warmly welcome guests and visitors who are not Christians.In the 1980s, a group of believers in Christ began to meet as "the church in Cape Town," a local expression of the Body of Christ according to the New Testament principle of "one city, one church"—Rev 1:11; Acts 14:23; Titus 1:5.
As individual believers in Christ, we seek to live a life that glorifies our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ, denying ungodliness and putting off the "old man" to live according to the life and nature of Christ who indwells us.
As members of the Body of Christ, we seek to live a corporate life by laying aside all distinctions and divisive practices, expressing the one, universal Body of Christ in a practical, local way but in fellowship with all the local churches on the earth. We have been especially helped, both individually and collectively, by the ministry of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee, and wholeheartedly recommend their ministry to all seekers of the Lord.For further information on meeting times and places, please visit our contact page.
