Our aim as a church is to glorify God by knowing Christ and making him known in Hillbrow, the surrounding areas of Johannesburg and the world.

We will fulfil this in three ways:

reachReaching Out with Christ: Proclaiming Christ to those who do not know Him so that they might come to a living faith in Him.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations...” Matthew 28:19

growGrowing Deeper in Christ: Proclaiming Christ to those who know Him so that they would be deeply rooted in Him.

“ you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him …” Col. 2:6

sendServing Others for Christ: Proclaiming Christ to those who know Him so they would serve one another, the wider church and the world.

“If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” Mark 9:35

Christ Church Hillbrow is a congregation of The Reformed Evangelical Anglican Church in South Africa (REACh SA), the church has been meeting for over one hundred years and today we seek to represent and reach all those in our local community. Below is a brief summary of what we believe.

We are a Christian Church

We believe in one God who has revealed himself supremely through his Son, the Lord Jesus. To know God the Father, we must put our trust in his Son and his death for our sins. The chief work of God the Holy Spirit is to draw people to faith in Christ.

We are an Evangelical Church

We believe that the Bible is God’s word and is therefore our authority in all matters of faith and conduct. See the section below for our basis of faith which expresses much of what we believe. In all our activities we seek to listen to and obey God’s word in Scripture. We also aim to proclaim the Bible’s wonderful message of salvation through Christ to as many people as possible.

We are an Anglican Church

We stand in the tradition of the Anglican Reformers of the 16th Century, affirming with them the great truths which were rediscovered at the time of the Reformation, such as the sovereignty of God in salvation, justification by faith alone, and salvation in Christ alone.As a reformed Anglican church we subscribe to the doctrines of the thirty nine articles which may be found here.
