Empangeni Baptist Church

Welcome to the Empangeni Baptist Church

"We are here to glorify God by strengthening the body and equipping believers in the task of ministry and evangelism for the expansion of Christ's Kingdom"

What is a Baptist?

We as Baptists share many areas of our faith with other members of the professing Christian Church. These include a belief in one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit; in the supreme Lordship of Jesus Christ as Head of the Church; and in the Bible as the inspired Word of God, and as the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.

There are however areas of principle and practice where we as Baptists make distinctive emphases arising out of our understanding of the Scriptures such as the direct lordship of Jesus Christ, the autonomy of the local church, believer’s baptism, the congregational principal of church government, the priesthood of all believers, the principle of religious liberty and the principle of separation of church and state.

A message from Pastor Shadrack

Thanks so much for visiting with us and for taking the time to learn a little bit about Empangeni Baptist church. It will probably take a few visits for you to figure out if this is the place where God has called you to connect and serve; let me see if I can help by highlighting a few of the things that make this church unique from others.

We are a small family of diverse cultures and races; we love and care about each other. We believe that we are all created equally in the image of God (Gen 1:26). But we have different roles in the Body of Christ (church), every member has a role to play towards growth and health of the church.

We believe it is absolutely critical for every true, born again follower of Jesus Christ to connect with a local church. However, we don’t think that our church is the only church in town. Please pray carefully and intentionally as to whether God is calling you to connect here. If He is, then let us know how we can begin to serve and deploy you for your good and for His glory.

Together serving God
Pastor Shadrack Khumalo

Zululand School of the Bible

Empangeni Baptist has begun to impact Zululand (Northern Kwazulu-Natal) through the training of rural pastors and Church leaders, by starting and hosting the Zululand School of the Bible, in association with the South Coast Bible School.

In 2018 we started training pastors for an accredited Diploma in Theology. This was made possible by our parternership with Mukhanyo Theological College.

We praise God also for First Baptist Church in Canada Orillia, they are also our partners in training pastors for ministry.


Like sheep needs a Sheppard, every community needs leaders. Please meet our dynamic team of leaders...
