Tzaneen Baptist Church’s Purposes, Goals, & Vision
We have determined that our church needs purpose in order to advance, so
The Five-fold purpose of our church is:
- Love your God – WORSHIP (Matt 22:37)
- Love your Neighbour – MINISTRY (Matt 22:39)
- Going and making disciples – EVANGELISM (Matt 28:19a)
- Baptizing them – FELLOWSHIP (Matt 28:19b)
- Teaching them to obey the God’s Word – DISCIPLESHIP (Matt 28:20)
In order for us to accomplish the above we as a church need to be a committed church in the following areas:
- Committed to Membership – Knowing Christ (Class Level 100)
- Committed to Maturity – Growing in Christ (Class Level 200)
- Committed to Ministry – Serving Christ (Class Level 300)
- Committed to Missions – Sharing Christ (Class Level 400)
We see our church as a family church and our goal is to attract families and also individuals (who are looking for & needing a family).
Our vision for Tzaneen Baptist Church is that we would like to become:
- A vibrant family of believers excited about serving God and encouraged by seeing Him at work through people coming to salvation and growing to maturity.
- A place where people can find love, comfort, forgiveness and acceptance, and where they can grow to fulfill their potential as Christians.
- A church that sends out missionaries and church planters
- A group of believers who are known in the community for demonstrating their faith through their actions.
