About this MCC church: People within society and within the church have been devalued and discriminated against because of their sexual orientation and / or gender identity. As a church we welcome all God’s children, though differing in sexual orientation and / or gender identity. Christ for All Ministries MCC, based in Johannesburg, South Africa, affirms the faith, baptism and spiritual gifts of all Christians regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, and neither are grounds for exclusion from fellowship or service within Christ for All Ministries MCC. All are a part of God’s creation.
Dr Paul Bayliss is the Lead Pastor for Christ for All Ministries MCC. He holds a Higher Certificate in Christian Life (2017) and a BTh(Hons) Cum Laude (2019) from the South African Theological Seminary. He planted and was co-Lead Pastor at Ransom Fellowship Church in Dinwiddie, south of Johannesburg, from 2017 to 2019. In addition, for the past three years Paul has acted as a spiritual volunteer at Boksburg Correctional Facility, east of Johannesburg.
Paul grew up in an Anglican household, where his father was Diocesan Secretary for the Anglican Church in Johannesburg, South Africa, under Bishop Tim Bavin and Bishop Tom Stanage.
