Brakpan AGF Home Page

Ken-Paynter Brakpan AGF is a vibrant cross-cultural, multi-racial church that tries it's best to cater to young and old alike. We endeavour to preach the undiluted truth of God's Word and to avoid the modern tendency of trying to be politically correct. We are at the same time very conscious of the grace of God which has reached each of us in our brokenness and given us hope and strength to live a life of victory in Him, through Him and for Him. It has been my privilege to pastor the Brakpan AGF for over 2 decades, during which time I've had the joy of seeing the Lord raise up leadership around me who share my vision and who have been instrumental in the positive changes that have taken place in the assembly in recent years. We have a sense of anticipation for what God has in store for us in the future. 

(Pastor Ken Paynter)

MISSIONS: The prototype Christian church Gavin Paynter , 22 July 2018
Acts 11:26 The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch. But what were the traits of this prototype church in Antioch where Christians first received their name? Amongst other things, Antioch was the first mission church. In Antioch, following the prompting of the Holy Spirit, the initiative was taken by a local congregation to launch and support a missionary venture to people beyond its own locale. The gospel had come to Antioch almost accidentally - that is due to Christians migrating there to escape persecution. But following the events in Acts 13 the church in Antioch make the propagation of the gospel a conscious strategy. The church in Antioch had a mission strategy which included (a) sending and support, (b) praying and fasting and (c) feedback and a home base. And so following the lead of this prototype Christian church, we too should have a conscious missions strategy.
