About Liberty

Liberty is one church family situated on 7 locations in South Africa, Tanzania and the United Kingdom. In 20 years, Liberty has grown to a church of almost 3000 people.
We are passionate about reaching those far from Jesus and have a strong Missional & Leadership culture.


Our vision is to be a growing church of Christ centred believers who honour God, help people and love life!

Our mission is that people far from God will find purpose in Jesus!

Our Leadership Culture – At Liberty we are convinced that when anyone follows Jesus, they are following the greatest leader who has ever lived. What makes a great leader is someone who is first of all a great follower.. and so anyone that follows Jesus is destined to lead in Life! Our world lacks leaders .. people who lead with integrity, passion and for a cause greater than themselves. We believe there is no greater cause on this planet than the cause of Christ and that the local church is the hope of the world because if Jesus is building anything, and He is, He is building His church (Matthew 16:18).

At Liberty we teach the Word of God by equipping and empowering all people irrespective of age, gender or ethnicity to lead in life .. to lead in their families, schools, clubs, communities, businesses… to influence every sector of society, whether in education, media, politics, or wherever they have opportunity.
