HISTORY OF CHRISTIAN LIFE CHURCH
In March of 1978 Pastor Dawie Senekal and his wife Linus were sent out from the Hatfield Baptist Church in Pretoria (at that stage) to plant a church in Sannieshof, North West. In April of 1981 the Lord instructed them to start a church in Lichtenburg, about 60 km in distance from Sannieshof.
The first house meeting in Lichtenburg were held on the 8th of May 1981. From there the meetings moved to the Lichtenburg Primary School hall until 1984 when the church moved to the MOTH hall. For the time being Dawie and Linus ministered to both churches, travelling between the towns, until the Lord led them in October 1984 to move permanently to Lichtenburg.
On the 2nd December 1994 the church dedicated the first fase of their church building to the Lord and on 18th January 2014 their main auditorium, the second fase of the building project.
The church were initially known as the Lichtenburg Baptist Church because of the affiliation with Hatfield Baptist Church in Pretoria. In the 1980’s Hatfield moved out of the Baptist Union consequently the name change to Christian Life Church / “Christen Lewe Gemeente”.
Christian Life Church are part of The Christian Network (TCN) under leadership of Pastor Leonard Stone of the Maranatha Community Church
