Faith Hill Church is a bible believing church based in Johannesburg South Africa.

What we believe:

All scripture is given by inspiration of God. Jesus Christ is true God and true man. The Holy Spirit is a divine person. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God and are in need of salvation. Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men. It is the will of God that every Believer be filled with the Holy Spirit. Healing and prosperity are provided in the redemptive work of Christ and is available to every believer.

The Church consists of all those who have received Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust. In the personal, visible, imminent return of Jesus Christ. In water baptism, and observance of the Lord’s Supper.


To give unto God the Glory due His name and to inspire others to do the same


Word, Transform, Engage


Faith as a lifestyle
