As a church we believe baptism is a biblically-mandated, important public confession of repentance and faith in Jesus. We encourage both adults and children, who have made a personal commitment to follow Jesus, and who are part of our church family, to be baptised.

Christian parents of infants will be baptising their children into the Christian faith, promising to raise their children in a Christian home, where, with God’s help, they will be taught the scriptures and encouraged to be followers of Christ. When these infants reach the age whereby they are able to decide for themselves, they are encouraged to be Confirmed.

Older new believers, will, at their baptism, make a public promise to live a life of commitment to the Lord Jesus, with the help of the Holy Spirit, within church community.

To be baptised you need to…

1. Have made a decision to follow Jesus and have attended Christ Church Midrand for more than 6 months. This indicates to us that you are committed to what you believe.

2. Organise a meeting with Raphael. This is so that Raphael can interview you and discuss Baptism dates (Contact below).

3. Suggestion: Join our Christianity Explored Course. Whether you a new Christian or preparing to raise your child as a Christian, it is good to understand the Christian faith better. The Christianity Explored Course is designed to help you learn the basics of Christianity.

“A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11: 28 – 30


God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

If you’re not part of a life group, you should be. Christians are not saved to live alone, we’re saved into a family (Ephesians 1:1 – 14). Why not sign up to a life group?
