South Africa

Description

South Africa is the most southern country in Africa. Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe border it to the north; Mozambique and Eswatini border it to the east and northeast; and to the south, it has a coastline that stretches along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans. In addition to this, it totally encloses the nation of Lesotho itself. After Tanzania, it is the country with the second-highest population that is situated totally south of the equator. More specifically, it is the country that is the southernmost on the mainland of the Old World. The country of South Africa is a biodiversity hotspot, boasting a wide variety of distinct biomes and plant and animal species.

Although Cape Town serves as the site of Parliament, Pretoria is the administrative capital of South Africa. Cape Town is also the legislative capital. Throughout history, Bloemfontein has been considered to be the capital of the judicial system. Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa and the location of the highest court in the country.

Black South Africans make up approximately 80 percent of the population. The population that is left over is made up of the largest communities of people of European (White South Africans), Asian (Indian South Africans and Chinese South Africans), and multiracial (Coloured South Africans) ancestry in Africa. South African society is characterized by its multiethnic composition, which includes a diverse range of cultures, languages, and religious practices.

Each church is independent and autonomous and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that, therefore, Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from the dictation or patronage of the other.

We believe that a visible church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, buried with Him in baptism and associated for worship, work and fellowship.

We believe that to these visible churches were committed for observance “until He comes,” the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper; and that God has laid upon these churches the task of persuading a lost world to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to enthrone Him as Lord and Master. We believe that righteous living, good works and proper social concern are essential products of the gospel.

We believe, therefore, that those who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence and those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God.
We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high priestly intercession for His people and His personal, visible return to the world according to His promise.
