Our history

Faith & victory in Jesus Christ International ministries… Founded back in 1993 in the City of Gold now Johannesburg, South Africa by Apostle Mike Lwambwa. Like any other its beginnings were humble with the church’s very first location being the Apostle’s own home in the dusty Hillbrow Area however with the help of the Lord and the Vision which He had revealed to the Apostle the church has thus grown in numbers and in spirit from glory to glory defying all of life’s obstacles. Located in Fairview, Johannesburg is the headquarters of Faith & Victory in Jesus Christ Ministries. Other branches are located in DRC Congo USA Texas

Our Vision

1 John 5:4 “For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith. “

We want to help Christians enter into their divine promises John 8:32

Plan a visit

We are Christians and therefore not perfect however we strive for perfection and we only pray that we may find mercy in the eyes of God and Our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ… With that said our church is Diverse and boasts men & women of God from all nations and from all corners of the earth. We are a multilingual church with services being held in English, French & Zulu (See Contacts page for Service times) Although the bible says God focuses on a man’s heart rather than his appearance we at faith and Victory leave no room for error even in the fashion department so Smart casual is usually the order of the day.
