The Garden Route has a rich spiritual heritage. Many churches in Knysna have grown up through the years, and we are here to rejoice in God’s ongoing blessing along the Garden Route. We at Lagoonside Church are an independent Baptist Church in Knysna, providing a place of worship, Discipleship and fellowship, who remain convinced that many new strong churches are needed to adequately reach this region of South Africa with the gospel message.
We are a Bible-believing church, which is Baptistic in doctrine. Although Lagoonside Church in the Knysna Community is not part of an organized denomination, we believe in networking with other fundamental churches of like conviction. We are committed to serving together with the other gospel preaching churches in our area who are submitted to the sole authority of the Word of God. At Lagoonside Church, as a fellowship we provide regular Bible-study, Prayer and Discipleship opportunities for our community each week.
We are a family-oriented church. Strong Christian families will result in a strong church and Christian witness. Our love for the Word instructs our teaching that the Bible is sufficient in meeting the needs of every member of the family. From toddlers to grandparents, we attempt to teach the whole counsel of God in Equipping believers for the Work of the Ministry and for Worship.
We believe churches should reach out. We take the great commission of Matthew 28 seriously. Our role as salt and light in a dark world motivates us in helping our Lagoonside church family in the Garden Route to reach out to our town, the beautiful town of Knysna. . . and we are involved in missionary church planting initiatives across the Garden Route, South Africa and around the world.
Lagoonside Church is a caring church. The mandate given us to remain sensitive to our fellow-believers, and also to those outside of the household of faith is very real. By God’s grace, and amidst great sacrifice, we continue to assist as many as we can who are struggling with the disappointments and challenges of life.
We are a God-glorifying church. Paul said it correctly when he instructed the Corinthian believers to glorify God in everything they do. We are attempting to do the same. Our Christian faith is best expressed when we are focused on God’s plans and purposes. Our Sunday worship services are especially structured to glorify our Lord through the music, teaching and expository preaching.
We are a friendly church. Come and see!
