Hi. We are Christ Church Midrand and we are a family. We meet together regularly and serve each other and the world. What we have in common is that we’ve given our lives to Jesus, God’s son who died and rose to save us, and we live by his word, the Bible.
What’s the experience like? We’re diverse in culture and age and we come as we are when we meet together. We love the old hymns in our Sunday 8am service, lift our voices to the newer songs in our Sunday 9:30 service and dance to traditional praise in our Sunday 6pm service. We’re a family church, a place where teens, kids, students and adults can sit under biblical teaching that is at their respective levels.
We’re an active church, constantly meeting together and pursuing change in the world. We plant churches, train preachers, train kids workers, teach theology, train educators and a host more.
What runs through the blood of each person of Christ Church Midrand is a DNA proclaiming that we are a Redeemed Family of Servants on Mission. What does that mean? Click here to find our more or watch the video below.
When we become Christians, we enter a new relationship with God, and he communicates to us through his Word, and one of the ways that we respond to him is through prayer. When we pray we are talking to the lover of our souls, God. This relationship ought to then shape and motivate our prayer lives.
In our own human experiences, how we talk to people and what we say to them will, to a large extent, be governed by how well we know them. The better we know the person, the more intimate our speaking will be. Rightfully so, how well we know God will greatly affect how we approach him in prayer.
It is key to mention that God has spoken to us first through his Word, therefore we approach him in response to what he has said to us. This reflects how well he knows us and our need for his grace.
Prayer, like everything else in the Christian life, is for God’s glory and for our benefit, in that order.
