We would like to welcome you to Faith Hill Church – Durban. We are believing God for great and mighty things in this beautiful city. We know that Durban has a special place in the heart of God and he has great plans for you. We are just so privileged to be a part of the story.
Habakkuk 2:2 states, “And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” It is important to note that the Lord instructed Habakkuk to write ‘The Vision’ as opposed to ‘a vision’ or ‘the visions’.
‘The Vision’ is specific and significant. The vision must be plain and easy to understand, allowing anyone who catches it to run with purpose and direction. There is one vision and it takes precedence over all other things. There are so many things that you can do as an individual or organization but these things must not be at the expense of the one thing that you must do. A lack of vision results in ill-discipline and chaos; there will be no progress, as there is nothing to work towards. Proverbs 29:18 states, “Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law.”
Our vision at Faith Hill Church is encapsulated in these three words: Word, Transform, Engage. These three words constitute the banner that we all rally behind.
We believe in the supremacy of God’s Word. It is the foundation of everything that we do. It is alive and it has the power to bring life to any situation. This is evidenced by John 6:63 that states, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” The Word is life because it brings revelation knowledge. Psalm 119:130 states, “The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” Anyone who chooses to sit under the counsel of the Word of God concerning any area of his or her life will get understanding regardless of previous knowledge or experience.
The Word also gives each and every one of us our true identity. Romans 12:3- 4 states, ” For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. 4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office.” We ought not to over or under value ourselves. We may occupy different offices but God has given all of us the same amount of faith to be able to fulfill what He has specifically called us to do. All we need to do in order to grow in it is to exercise it more.
We believe that the Word transforms us. Romans 12:2 states, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” As our minds are renewed by the Word of God, we will manifest God’s good, acceptable and perfect will in our lives. Righteousness, prosperity, health, joy and peace will begin to manifest in our lives. Once our own lives are changed we can begin to change entire communities by sharing the transforming Word with them.
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ has called every believer to the Great Commission. This was His last instruction whilst He was here on earth. Matthew 28:19 records it as follows, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” We fulfill this call by engaging in what God is doing on this earth through the local church. A fully transformed believer is an engaging believer.
