Who Are We?

We are a group of Christians (see What is a Christian?) from a variety of backgrounds who have been brought together to form a local church. Birchleigh BC was a church plant started in late 2005 by Constantia Park BC in Pretoria. As our title suggests that we are Baptist, believing that baptism is an ordinance given by Christ for believers in Him. We are Reformed in our doctrinal position (see Basis of Faith), maintaining the truths of the Bible as formulated by the great Reformers of the 16th and 17th century, and holding to the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith (see Confession of Faith).

We seek to teach and apply the message of the Bible in our personal lives and all our affairs together as a church. We do this through expository preaching and interactive Bible studies, believing that God grows individuals and churches by the Holy Spirit taking up His word and applying it in power.
