Here is our quarterly update in preparation for our quarterly general meeting to held at Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni on Sunday, 30th May, 5:00pm.

Biblical Teaching

We draw our belief from God’s Word.

Pastor Mark Penrith

“At Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni we hold to a high view of Scripture. We delight in the Word of God. This delight flows through our services, our Bible studies, and all our ministries. Whether studying hermeneutics with the Young Adults, systematics with the Training for Bible Study and Church Leaders, or Generations of Grace in Sunday School, God’s Word is our solid foundation. As pastor, I see God strengthening us in His Word even as He exalts Himself in it and through it.”

Loving Fellowship

“Our members commit to our local church and our church commits to them.”

Pastor Mark Penrith

Our 8:30am Sunday service is chock-a-block. The main hall is absolutely full. And while there is some seating left, outside, under the tent, it’s Winter. And starting to get chilly. Brrr. And yet, we continue to enjoy a steady stream of visitors. And we’re looking forward to more. So, partner with us. If you don’t have to be at the 8:30am service come celebrate Jesus together with us at the 10:30am service.
