Missed Anything?

Hi there! In case you missed any of the sermons I have preached recently I have uploaded them to The Sermons Page. Additionally, here are some more of my published articles.


The whole of the Great Commission

I have summarised what this means by referencing  Matthew 28; Mark 16; Luke 24, and John 21. Our Great Commission may seem daunting, BUT God has equipped us to join with Him in His Mission of drawing people to himself.

Signed, Sealed & Delivered

The Revelation Revisited Series is still underway, so if you have not joined with us on this exciting journey then please do so by having a look at the Summary Video on YouTube HERE, or downloading the text summary HERE.

This sermon addresses Revelation 7 and also includes a reminder of how to understand the book of Revelation.

Jesus, the Spirit & Us

Drawing from Matthew 3:13 to 4:1 I speak of baptism, both of the Spirit and in water. The bible is clear on this – just do it! If you have given your life to the Lord Jesus Christ then you MUST be baptised in water because this is what we are told to do! When Jesus was baptised by John he went humbly to him, got baptised, and then spent time in prayer with His Father and our Father.

The Rose Among the Thorns

What do we do in times of affliction? Who can we blame? God? Ourselves? Our Parents? The devil? Why do we even have to go through afflictions, and most importantly, how do we deal with them?

Prisoners of Our Past

I understand that trauma, neglect, and abuse of any kind can leave emotional scar tissue, and that even late in life these negative legacies can trigger defense mechanisms in us. This I get. What I don’t get is why anyone should believe that they are a prisoner of their past. I look at Ephesians 4:22-24 to find out how to escape from this self-made prison.

The Light of the World

‘Light’ is a common theme in the Bible, right from book 1 (Genesis) when God commanded ‘let there be light’, and in Exodus where the Israelites followed the pillar of light in the desert. In this article I look at light and it’s association with God and compare it to what we know in physics about its properties. In this article I reveal how in Jesus we see the light of God!

About Me

My name is Christopher Peppler and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1947. While working in the financial sector I achieved a number of business qualifications from the Institute of Bankers, Damelin Management School, and The University of the Witwatersrand Business School. After over 20 years as a banker, I followed God’s calling and joined the ministry full time. After becoming a pastor of what is now a quite considerable church, I  earned an undergraduate theological qualification from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and post-graduate degrees from two United States institutions. I was also awarded the Doctor of Theology in Systematic Theology from the University of Zululand in 2000.

Four years before that I established the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), which today is represented in over 70 countries and has more than 2 500 active students enrolled with it. I presently play an role supervising Masters and Doctoral students.

I am a passionate champion of the Christocentric or Christ-centred Principle, an approach to biblical interpretation and theological construction that emphasises the centrality of Jesus

I have been happily married to Patricia since the age of 20, have two children, Lance and Karen, a daughter-in-law Tracey, and granddaughters Jessica and Kirsten. I have now retired from both church and seminary leadership and devote my time to writing, discipling, and the classical guitar.
