About Us

About MBC

Malelane Baptist Church is a small community church situated in the beautiful Mpumalanga Lowveld in South Africa. The town of Malelane is situated about 65km to the east of Nelspruit, and borders the Kruger National Park. The church body is made up mainly of those involved in the local farming community, employees of the local sugar mill, along with other those involved in other small local businesses. We are a multi-cultural church, and welcome people from all backgrounds and cultures to join us in uniting in the worship of our King. The age range within the congregation is broad, and we value families, including children, being gathered together for the worship services.

​Malelane Baptist Church offers congregants a place of biblical teaching, warm fellowship, and living and growing together as disciples of Jesus Christ. We are committed to the expository preaching of God's word, and our goal is to make disciples, teaching them to obey Christ and be conformed into His likeness. We invite you to visit us and become a part of our growing congregation, and look forward to meeting you!
