About The Barn

The Barn started in July 2000 in the home of Roelof and Carol Kwant. From those humble beginnings God has continually blessed our church and The Barn has become the spiritual home of many families in our community. We moved into our Boskruin premises in May 2004. We are still growing and developing new areas of ministry in our local community as well as those further away.

After a few months of attending our celebration services, you may want to officially partner with us as a member – we facilitate new membership courses bi-annually. Please sign up at the information desk so that we may contact you with the details.

Our desire as a church is to bring glory to God, by being real in our relationships, and making an eternal impact for our awesome God. The Barn is affiliated with The Christian Network (TCN) and is under the oversight of Hatfield Christian Church.

Mission Statement

Inspiring all people toward a meaningful and authentic relationship with God and one another.

Vision

Real People making an Eternal Impact for our Awesome God!

Strategy

Our simple strategy is for everyone at the barn to:

Celebrate with us

  • every Sunday at our church services
  • at our praise and worship evenings
  • by attending our fellowship meals
  • church events

Grow with us

  • at our discipleship courses
  • by joining a life group
  • through biblical counseling
  • through one on one discipleship and mentoring programs
  • Sound biblical teaching – We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God. Our sermons and teachings are founded in sound doctrine based on the truth of God’s Work.
  • Vibrant praise and worship – We value authentic Praise and Worship led by skilled musicians who are passionate about our Lord.
  • Strong friendships – We encourage honesty, transparency and integrity as we walk together in love. We guard the unity of our church as we strive for it to be a safe place where people can journey with us.
  • Balanced Life Groups (small groups) – We encourage the frequent gathering of believers as part of the Body of Christ. Every person is valuable and cared for in our Life Groups.
  • Authenticity – We believe that people need to be real in their relationships with each other and with God.
  • Servanthood – Serving the Lord is imperative in order to be fully integrated into the life of the church and to fulfil God’s Will for His church.
  • Team Leadership – We embrace the style of leadership where our Senior Pastor leads alongside other gifted and well-trained leaders. Jesus operated with a team leadership philosophywhen He chose His twelve disciples to work together with Him.
  • Impacting our Community – We believe in seeing our community coming to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour. We strive to touch the lives of the people in our local community as part of our value system.

The Church is open to any further truth, which the Holy Spirit may illuminate from the Scriptures.

  1. We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments in their original writing as fully inspired of God and accept them as the supreme and final authority for faith and life.
  2. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man.
  4. We believe that God created man in His own image; that man sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of sin which is death, physical and spiritual; that all human beings inherit a sinful nature which issues (in the cases of those who reach moral responsibility) in actual transgression involving personal guilt.
  5. We believe in the principle of heterosexual relationships between a natural man and a natural woman within the confines of lawful matrimony.
  6. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins a substitutionary sacrifice according to the Scriptures and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.
  7. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus, His ascension into Heaven, and His present life as our High Priest and Advocate.
  8. We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  9. We believe that all that repent of their sin and receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
  10. We believe in baptism in the Holy Spirit, empowering and equipping believers for service, with the accompanying supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit; and in fellowship with the Holy Spirit. We believe in the divinely ordained ministries of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher.
  11. We believe in the resurrection of both the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and the eternal banishment of those who have rejected the offer of salvation.
  12. We believe that elders carry the responsibility for oversight and care of the staff and members. Where necessary elders must carry out biblical discipline for the protection of the local church.
  13. We believe that the one true Church is the whole company of those who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit; that the local church on earth should take its character from this and that the new birth and personal confession of Christ are essentials of Church membership.
  14. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ appointed two ordinances – Baptism in water and the Lord’s Supper – to be observed as acts of obedience and as perpetual witnesses to the cardinal facts of the Christian faith; that Baptism is the immersion of the believer in water as a confession of identification with Christ in burial and resurrection and that the Lord’s Supper is the partaking of the emblems symbolic of the Saviour’s broken body and shed blood, in remembrance of His sacrificial death, till He comes.
  15. We believe that divine healing was provided for in the Old Testament and is an integral part of the Gospel.

We believe the Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the doctrine of sanctification as definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of the new birth and continuing until the consummation of salvation.
