Grace Baptist Church is a warm and friendly multi-cultural, multi-generational, family church situated in Van Riebeeck Park, Kempton Park. We are about 8km (11 minutes away) from OR Tambo international airport, Johannesburg.
We are a disciple making, Christ glorifying church that upholds Biblical preaching, authentic worship and joyful fellowship as pillars of congregation.
We aspire to glorify the Father’s name in all we do as our church community. In doing this our mission as a church focuses on four areas:
To glorify and love God
Give to our community
Go with God
Grow in Christ
We believe in Church leadership as defined by scripture and that scripture calls us to a particular type of governance. We are therefore:
Led by elders
And served by deacons
“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest” – Luke 10:2
We believe that it is the responsibility of the local church to be given to the mission of God by sending out laborers and supporting them. Meet our missionary family.
We are followers of Christ who are proud of our Baptist identity.
As Baptists we share many of the same beliefs as other evangelical Christians, but we do have some distinctives that make us different as well.
A constitution is guiding document for beliefs and practice that is based on scripture and operated under the direct Lordship of Christ and is therefore something we as a church hold to and are accountable to.

Who we are is greatly defined by where we’ve been.
Grace Baptist has a rich history of God’s faithfulness and consistent grace and mercy in the task of glorifying God’s name in Kempton Park.
