What We Believe

Our Confession

Brackenhurst Baptist Church is a Reformed evangelical Christian church, which affirms the five solas of the Protestant Reformation and the doctrines of grace encapsulated in the five points of the Protestant Reformation.

Our Covenant

Brackenhurst Baptist Church seeks to live out the principles of biblical Christianity. Each member affirms both what the Scriptures teach and agrees to live according to what the Scriptures require. Our covenant summarises biblical expectations for Christian living.

Our Affiliation

Brackenhurst Baptist Church is an independent Baptist Church, not affiliated with the Baptist Union of Southern Africa. The church freely affiliates with likeminded churches and is a member of Sola 5 and the Pillar Network.

We are a part of the Pillar Network

The Pillar Network is a community of Southern Baptist Churches and International Baptist Churches that are doctrinally aligned, missionally driven, and committed to equipping, planting, and revitalising churches, together.

The network gladly stands in the Reformed Baptist tradition and commends Statements of Faith like the Abstract of Principles (1858) and the Baptist Faith and Message (2000).

Are you looking to join a church?

The membership process at BBC is intentionally slow and is designed to ensure that the church and the member applicant are on the same page with regard to understanding the gospel and church life. Here is how to pursue membership with BBC.

Attend our services

Begin by worshipping with us. Attendance gives a good feel for the general ethos of the church. Consider also joining one of our Family Bible Hour classes, which take place prior to the morning worship service, from 8:30 AM to 9:15 AM.

Read our membership booklet

Download and read a booklet produced by our elders, which explains who we are as a church. The booklet contains the full text of our church covenant and our confession of faith.

Attend a membership information class

Membership information classes are typically held the first Sunday morning of every month during Family Bible Hour / Sunday school (8:30 AM – 9:15 AM). This no-obligation class will give you all the information you need about church membership.

Work through the membership material

An elder will assign an existing member of the church to lead you through the required membership material, which takes the form of ten lessons focusing on the relationship between the church and its members.

Undergo a membership interview

Prospective members will be interviewed by one or two of the elders, where they will establish that you are happy with the ethos and doctrine of the church and that you understand the gospel. The elders will explain next steps at the interview.
