ST JAMES EXISTS, BY GOD'S GRACE, AS A COMMUNITY OF BELIEVERS IN BLOEMFONTEIN, WHO STRIVE TO GLORIFY GOD AND PROCLAIM HIS EXCELLENCIES. BY THE POWER OF HIS HOLY SPIRIT WE JOIN HIS MISSION IN THIS WORLD TO GATHER MORE DISCIPLES THROUGH THE PROCLAMATION OF THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST AS LORD, ENCOURAGING EACH OTHER TO MATURITY AS WE SERVE AND WITNESS TOGETHER.
IN SHORT OUR MISSION IS TO INTRODUCE PEOPLE OF ALL AGES TO JESUS CHRIST AND HELP THEM GROW TO MATURITY IN CHRIST.
To this end we began a 'REACH 2016' initiative which is all about growth- our personal growth, and the growth of the gospel across our city and province.

Passion for Jesus
Passion speaks of love for Jesus - the Father's emphatic, blazing love to and through us. This love lends legitimacy to who we are and what we do.
People to serve
People are our core business. To serve them flows naturally from this passion. Leadership happens when we commit to serve and grow others.
God has uniquely designed our breakthroughs to come in and through community life.
