Kopanong is an expression of movement!
We believe that God is calling us to be a place of Kopanong, a beautiful Sesotho word, meaning "Place of coming together", but also "the Act of coming together".
As the most central city in our country, Bloemfontein has always been a place of gathering for people and ideas.
This can create tension; it can create beauty; it always creates spaces where we need God's spirit to give us insight and direction. Movement, coming and going, and being; all on holy ground.
HOW DO WE BELIEVE?
What our logo says about us.
Our logo is firstly a cross.
We believe that all we are and all we do is anchored in the Cross of Jesus. Him, and His act of godly salvation, stands at the centre of what we believe. He is our begin-and-end-in-all.
Secondly, it is a coptic cross.
We believe that God has placed us, and called us, to be his body in Africa. As tribute to the Ethiopian Coptic Church, being the first church in Africa, we choose this version of the cross. To be salt and light in our context - that is our calling.
OUR VALUES THROUGH COLOUR
We are grounded. In Christ, and in our context.
We are overcome by His enduring love.
We are to partake in the coming of new life, of kingdom things.
We are called to embrace those who are the least of these;
it is the colour of suffering and lament.
We are loved to be love. He crowns us to be mediators
of a new era. His reign is here!
