Welcome

Welcome to the Church of Christ Boksburg West. As an active congregation, we have numerous activities and events and we would like to extend an invitation to everyone who wishes to worship with us. As a congregation, we've chosen five values that drive our commitment to God and His church

  • Compassion: Christ calls us to cultivate compassion for a dying world. As a the Body of Christ, we strive to imitate Christ's mission on earth as He showed compassion to all people.
  • Commitment: We are committed to our work here on earth and we are committed to our brothers and sisters. When Christ died on the cross for our sins, He showed His ultimate commitment for our salvation.
  • Growth: An essential part of our congregation is focused on growth. But, not just growth in numbers, but growing in Spiritual maturity and growing closer to God
  • Truth: The Church of Christ is built on the foundation of truth. We follow the God's instructions to the best of our abilities. We teach and practice the truth according to the New Testament
  • Love: The most important and all encompassing value is Love. Everything we do is based on love.

About us

The Church of Christ Boksburg West is a small but intimate congregation of people who desire simply to be God-fearing Christians. We believe and practice the teachings of the New Testament to the very best of our ability. Our worship is simple, friendly and open to all.

Our worship resembles the church revealed in the New Testament. It consists of singing, praying, preaching and studying God's Word together. This we do each time we assemble to worship Our Heavenly Father. On each first day of the week (Sunday), we partake of the Lord's Supper together. Everyone is invited to participate in each of these spiritual exercises.

We Believe:

  • In one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three entities; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
  • That Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God; and, as such, is Head of His body, the Church. (Matt. 16:16; Col. 1:18)
  • That He died to atone for the sins of all people and that He was raised bodily from the dead for their justification. (Rom. 4:25)
  • That Jesus stands before the Father as our eternal High Priest. (Heb. 4:14-16)
  • That Jesus will return to bring to perfection His already inaugurated Kingdom (1 Thess. 5:1-11).
  • That people are justified by faith in Him according to the terms of the Gospel laid down in the New Testament. (John 3:16, Acts 2:38, Rom. 10:9-10)
  • That the Holy Spirit lives in all Christians, gifting them for ministry, and producing the fruit of the Spirit. (1 Cor. 12:4; Gal. 5:22-23). The work of the Spirit equips Christians to practice the priest- hood of all believers (1 Peter 2:6,10).
  • That the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that it is the all-sufficient guide for the teach- ing, organization, and the life of the Church. (2 Tim. 3:14-16).
  • That we are to seek the unity of all believers by practicing Biblical Christianity. (John 17:20; Eph. 4: 1-13)
  • That the Church is the precious bride of Christ, temple of the Holy Spirit and a primary organ of Gods intervention in the world (2 Cor. 11:2, Rev. 19: 6-8; 1 Cor. 3: 16, 17)
  • That the mission of the Church worldwide is evangelism and Christian nurture. (Matt. 28: 18-20)

Hebrews 10:25 "And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near."

Our name confirms our Founder

The term, Church of Christ is not used as a denominational appellation. It is simply a descriptive term indicating the fact that the church is the possession of Christ.

This is not an exclusive term to designate the church, because the New Testament also refers to the church as:

The church of the Lord (Acts 20:28)
The body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:27).
The house of God (1 Timothy 3:15).
The church of God (Galatians 1:13).
The church of the Firstborn (Hebrews 12:23).

God's plan of salvation

Members of the Church of Christ believe there are certain steps which must be taken, in obedience to the commands of the New Testament. These steps bring about salvation and at the same time make one a member of the church.

  • Hear the gospel: In John 5:24-25, Jesus says, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgement, but hath passed out of death into life."
  • Believe the gospel: "Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God." We cannot have faith if we do not know what the word of God has to say. Many believe they have faith, and that it is independent of what the Bible actually says. But according to the Bible, men and women can only attain faith through hearing the word of God.
  • Repent of past sins: In Luke 13:3, Jesus says, "Unless ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." In Acts 2, Peter preaches the first gospel sermon, in which he explains to everyone who Jesus is and the horrific crime they had committed in putting Him to death.
  • Confess faith in Jesus: Romans 10:8 - 10 reads: "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); 9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart othat God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved." We are to confess our faith as instructed in the Bible.
  • Be baptised: The person who is a repentant, confessing believer is a person ready to be baptized. To many in the world, baptism is a controversial issue. As simple as the process is and as often as it is commanded in the New Testament, many in the religious world just cannot accept it as the Bible teaches it.
  • Be faithful until death: Finally, we must live our lives in faithful and loyal service to our Lord Jesus Christ as God has directed (Revelation 2:10). We must find a congregation that believes and practices as the New Testament directs, following the Word of God, speaking where the Bible speaks, living by His Word and His Word alone. Trusting in God to save us as He has promised those who would be faithful to Him.

Biblical Worship Service

Our weekly worship service is God-centred. Worshiping is not about us, but about God and as instructed by His Word.

  • Teaching and Preaching: The Bible instructs us to teach and preach the Word of God to all people (Acts 2:42; 20:7). It is only through continual teaching and preaching of the Word that we can share the good news of salvation to everyone
  • Praying: Prayer forms a very important part of our worship service. Prayers are offered to our Father in heaven, through the resurrected Jesus Christ. Jesus now reigns over His kingdom, the church, from heaven (Matthew 6:9; 1 Timothy 2:5; Romans 8:34; John 18:36; Colossians 1:13,14; Revelation 1:6; 3:21)
  • Giving of our means: We do not teach the law of tithing, as we believe that law was included with the rest of the Old Testament when it was nailed to the cross (Colossians 2:14). We do, however, believe that it is unthinkable that we who live under a better law with better promises would, with our great prosperity, consider giving less than 10 percent of our income to the Lord. We teach that members of the church are to give liberally and cheerfully (2 Corinthians 9:6-15), and that every man is to give according to the way he has prospered (1 Corinthians 16:2).
  • Singing: One of the things which people most frequently notice about the Church of Christ is that we sing without the use of mechanical instruments of music. Simply stated, here is the reason for this: We feel we are to worship according to God's instructions in the New Testament; the New Testament leaves instrumental music out; if we used the mechanical instrument we would have to do so without God's authority. We can read every verse in the New Testament on the subject of music in worship.
  • Lord's Supper: This is a memorial inaugurated by Jesus Christ on the night of His betrayal (Matthew 26:26 - 28). It is observed by Christians in memory of the Lord's death (1 Corinthians 11:24 - 25), and in Communion of his blood and body (1 Corinthians 10:16). Members of the Church of Christ observe the Lord's Supper on the first day of every week.
