AFM Pastors & Members,
Will you help us to spread the word? We believe that this year’s theme “Rooted in Christ” is a vital message for the missional church going forward. Resources are now available in Afrikaans, English and Xhosa. These 3 languages are predominant in the geographical area where the conference will be hosted – Cape Town. We are looking forward to seeing our pastors and members attend this vital gathering. For any queries related to these material, please contact Chantalle Schutte at [email protected]

The Apostolic Faith Mission church (AFM of SA) learned with shock about a purported miracle in which a man is raised from the “dead” as was displayed in an insert shown on national television and to the delegates at the National Consultative Conference at St Georges Hotel in Pretoria.
Firstly, we are filled with anger, shame and a sense of disgrace about the way the Pentecostal and Charismatic stream of Christianity is portrayed. We believe in miracles and have seen and experienced it, Jesus Christ is the Healer and the one who performs miracles as He wills. It is not a matter of showmanship in which personality culture is the main objective. We therefore reject with contempt the alleged resurrection.
Secondly, we are suspicious about the sudden appearance of this incident, while the Commission for The Promotion and Protection of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Rights (CRL) are having a National Consultation where they want to advance the need for legislation to control religion. Especially in the light of the fact that a meeting of religious leaders and organizations at Rhema church on 13 February 2019 rejected the manner in which the CRL are seeking to control religion.
Finally, the fact that two High Profile cases are currently in court, confirms the fact that there are enough laws with which Religious groups and churches must comply. These are amongst others, that all churches must be registered with SARS and abide to laws governing legality, safety and security in South Africa. When they violate these laws, they can and must be charged. There is no need for extra laws by government to regulate and control churches.
The AFM of SA, who have been in this country for one hundred and eleven years, have been summoned to appear before the CRL with all documentation they required some time ago. We advised the CRL that the existing laws of the country should be used to charge culprits who contravene the laws.
We therefore, remain resolute in our position that we reject and condemn the fake miracle incident, while at the same time saying loud and clear that there is no justification whatsoever for Government to control churches.

“The greatest thing anyone can do for God or man is pray”. – S. D. Gordon
Next year will be the 4th consecutive year that we gather as Christians all across South Africa to cover our Nation in Prayer. “Up4SA 2018” had 250+ Prayer Points, so many communities uniting in Prayer over the same weekend!
Up4SA (United Prayer for South Africa) is a nationwide Prayer initiative on grassroots level. (Grassroots CommUNITY Prayer – Across race and denomination). Secondly, our aim is to actively pursue unity in our communities! As ambassadors of our Lord Jesus we have a responsibility in this regard and you and I can play a huge roll in unifying our communities! I would like to encourage and challenge you again to take hands with the “Up4SA 2019” Team, as we Unite in Prayer for South Africa! We all acknowledge that 2019 is a very significant year for us as a Nation, as it is South Africa’s General Election Year!
Next year, we will continue covering in Prayer “crucial areas” concerning South Africa. At an IFSA (Intercessors for South Africa) Prayer and Prophetic meeting held in September 2018, Prayer Network Leaders from across South Africa strongly felt in their spirit that for 2019 we need to place specific prayer focus on the truth that Jesus Christ is our Cornerstone and Foundation, as we pray for our Nation!
Matt 16:18 “And so I tell you, Peter: you are a rock, and on this rock foundation I will build my church, and not even death will ever be able to overcome it”. Matt 7:24 “So then, anyone who hears these words of mine and obeys them is like a wise man who built his house on rock”.
Matt 21:44 “And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder”.
With these Scriptures in mind, we will pray the following truths over South Africa at all Up4SA 2019 Prayer points:
We will pray the truth that Jesus is the Prince of Peace in whom we trust, we do not put our trust in people, spiritual or political Leaders. Isa 9:6 “A child is born to us! A son is given to us! And He will be our ruler. He will be called, “Wonderful Counsellor”, “Mighty God”, “Eternal Father”, “Prince of Peace”.
We will pray the truth that The Holy Spirit is our strength in whom we trust, we do not put our trust in our own flesh / strength or abilities. Zec 4:6 “…this message from the LORD: “You will succeed, not by military might or by your own strength, but by my spirit”.
We will pray the truth that Jesus is the only Way, the Truth and the Life in whom we trust, we do not put our trust in false gods. Joh 14:6 Jesus answered him: “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one goes to the Father except by me”.
We will pray the truth that the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ in whom we trust, is our only source of wealth and provision, we do not put our trust in the wealth and riches of this world. Matt 6:24 “You cannot be a slave of two masters; you will hate one and love the other; you will be loyal to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money”.
We will pray the truth that Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords in whom we trust alone! We do not trust in the kingdoms and institutions of this world. Isa 31:1 “Those who go to Egypt for help are doomed! They are relying on Egypt’s vast military strength—horses, chariots, and soldiers. But they do not rely on the LORD, the holy God of Israel, or ask him for help”.
Amen and amen!
We ask Pastors and Community Leaders to prayerfully consider volunteering and co-ordinating a prayer point in their community. Every Community leader that volunteers will receive a resource pack and will be empowered to coordinate the prayer point.

Zec 8:21 “And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts: I will go also.“

For South Africans the year 2018 started out with great enthusiasm and anticipation for a so called “new dawn”. With the first half of the year behind us, indeed, there are many positive developments that give South Africans a reason to be hopeful. However, the continued negative impact of inequality, poverty, abuse of especially women and children, joblessness, inadequate housing and poor service delivery still cast a big, dark shadow over people’s hopes.
As president of the AFM of SA I would like to use the opportunity to remind all of us, but especially those in positions of leadership that, as believers we are prisoners of hope (Zecharia 9:12). We are aware that many disenfranchised fellow South Africans are taking their legitimate grievances to the streets, sometimes, unfortunately, with many unintended consequences. There are also the emotive public meetings dealing with the issue of taking land without compensation.
We encourage our leaders to exercise caution and not join the hype and jump on the bandwagons of false media reports and to always make sure that we use verified information from credible sources with regards to what is really happening on all relevant topics.
Amid the uncertainty many voices are speaking in many forums. Some of the messages that are being conveyed regrettably further fan the flames of violence, hate and division. As spiritual leaders we have to remind ourselves that we are agents of hope. We are purveyors of the good news. We believe in the power of prayer. We are the builders of reconciliation and cohesion. No matter how dark the days may become – our message has to give people hope. Because hope starts with me, us.
