A logo explains something of the organisation to which it belongs, that has not yet been explained by the name of the organisation. In the case of Kraaifontein Baptist Church, our name tells us where we are situated (Kraaifontein), that we are Baptist, and that we are a Church (see Who Are We?). Our logo, therefore, must further define who we are and what we believe.
Our logo has two tulips growing out of a book, set in a stain glass effect, yet in a very modern format. What is the meaning of this?
Firstly, the two tulips define our theological position. We are Reformed Baptist (see What Are We?), and thus the acronym TULIP places us within the Reformed theological tradition.
Secondly, the book represents the Bible, and the significance of this is though we hold to a historic theological position, we believe that this tradition has grown out of the Bible and thus the doctrines have a strong biblical basis. The Bible is our foundation, or in other words, our ultimate source of authority.
Thirdly, the stain glass effect reminds us of tradition (see What do we believe?). We believe that we stand upon the shoulders of those who preceded us, and therefore profess the same faith as those faithful believers who went before us.
Fourthly, the modern effect is to remind us that we live in a particular historical context, and therefore our historic faith must be applicable to the context wherein we find ourselves.
