Official Statement: Covid-19 & The Current Violence in the Country

12 July 2021


The National Office Bearers of the Apostolic of Faith Mission in South Africa call upon our pastors and members, in these difficult days to keep the faith and pray to God to redeem us from this devasting pandemic. Psalm 46:1-2: “God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So, we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea” (NLT).

We are mindful of the words of Paul in Ephesians 12 verse 6 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Important Notice:

We are aware of a growing number of false training institutions claiming to be awarding a variety of degrees. We strongly advise our members and Pastors not to obtain qualifications from these Institutions, as they are not recognized by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA), or the AFM of SA.
