TBT Student church
Our student church goes under the banner of TBT (The Bible talks) and meets every Sunday at 6:30pm. We are committed to listening to God speak to us through his Word and responding in loving faith and obedience. We view Stellenbosch University campus as our “mission field” and feel that we benefit greatly from being a local church in Stellenbosch and not merely a parachurch organization on campus. Our location provides us with the strategic opportunity and responsibility of reaching students with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. To this end we are committed to proclaiming the Word of God correctly, clearly and courageously, and so to evangelise unbelievers and to encourage and equip believers.
Whoever you are and whatever your previous Christian experience, we would love you to join us. From the interested observer to the committed follower, we are keen that everyone should grow in relationship with God through knowing Jesus. That is why our emphasis is on hearing God speak to us by His Spirit, through His Word, the Bible. We all know that we only grow in relationship with someone and get to know them as we listen to them, and as we respond or react to what they say. So the focus of our activities is on listening to God’s Word, responding to Him in prayer and acting on all that He says. We exist not just for Christians but for anyone who wants to investigate the claims of Jesus. We would love to meet you. And we do hope you will quickly feel at home among us.
