Nelspruit Baptist Church
- We Preach Christ -
Since 1950, Nelspruit Baptist Church has been a place for members of the Nelspruit-area to come together and worship as part of a strong, loving community with like-minded people.
We’re always happy to see you and warmly welcome visitors.
Getting together is the key to all we do at Nelspruit Baptist Church. We offer a number of different events to ensure you can always worship with others who care. Our schedule includes prayer, preaching, Holy Communion, Bible study, Sunday School and more. Learn more and plan your visit.
In the late 1940s a small group of believers began to meet for corporate worship on a regular basis in the (then) SOE (Sons of England) Hall, on the corner of Ferreira and Brown streets. Out of this fellowship the Nelspruit Baptist Church was born when the church was constituted in 1950. Through the grace of God the Church has exercised a stable ministry. The Rev P U Louw was its first pastor, followed by Dr J van der Colff, the Rev J M Botha, the Rev F J Coertze, Dr J Vink, with Rev D Versfeld the present pastor and sixth incumbent.
The Church has membership in the Baptist Union of Southern Africa and is affiliated to the association of Afrikaanse Baptiste Kerke . The ethos of the Church is Christ-centred and Bible-based. The Preaching of the Word is predominantly Expository Preaching.
Sunday Services - Everyone is welcome to worship at the Nelspruit Baptist Church. There are two services on a Sunday, one at 09:00 and the other at 18:00. The first Sunday morning service of every month is always in Afrikaans, with the evening service being Bilingual. The following Sunday this changes with the morning service being in English. This alternation continues throughout the month until the first Sunday morning of the following month when the service is again in Afrikaans.
The services at the Nelspruit Baptist Church are always Bible-based and are normally joyful celebrations of the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Communion is celebrated once a month during a morning service, alternating between Afrikaans and English. Baptismal services take place on demand when believers request Believer's Baptism.
Nelspruit Baptist Church, a congregation in Nelspruit, offers members - and visitors - a chance to become part of something greater. To grow in their love of God and for one another within our beautiful community.
We are rooted in the stories of the Bible and believe worship is something that can be expressed in everything we do. Our philosophy is founded on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. No matter who you are, there’s a special place for you at our church. Get in touch today or come and visit us in person.
