At Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni we draw our belief from God’s Word. And so, we make the main point of Scripture the main point of our message and apply it to our lives; our members participate in small groups for accountability, prayer, fellowship and the study of Scripture; and we have vibrant Sunday School, Teen Class and Youth programs and encourage family devotions.

What Biblical Teaching Looked Like Last Year
The Pulpit: We finished John’s Gospel, Genesis 1-11, James and began Genesis 12-23. Our preaching team is Mark Penrith, Menzi Mohale, Craig Dadoo and Dave Courtney. Leadership development: We are working with 8 men by invitation and are pleased to see them serving in the body. We have 25 members co-leading our Bible studies. Servant Development: We are working with 3 members and hope to recognise more deacons. Conferences: We hosted conferences on Career Guidance, Creation Ministries International, Steve Lawson, HeartCry Missionary Society, Tim Challies and the Reconciled Conference. We also had James White preach. Library and books: We received and distributed books from Banner of Truth, Chapel Library, Sola 5 and Ekklesia Africa. Our library continues to grow and be utilised. Family Devotions: I’m delighted by regular reports of members doing family devotions. Bible Studies: We have 8 weekly Bible studies, 2 monthly Bible studies and 3 weekly children’s programs (Sunday School, Teen Class and Youth). Corporate Scripture Reading: Our reading team has grown to 5 men.
Where to from here?
We hope that over the next year we will see more members developed and getting involved in our midweek preaching slots, boosting the church’s visibility in the community and growing our pool of future leaders.
