Archbishop Dr Petrus John Masango.

Archbishop Dr Petrus John Masango is one of the most influential leaders in the history of St Johns Apostolic Faith Mission. He took control of the St johns church in 1972 after a court battle with the then Archbishop Johannes Nku. The exact details of the rift are out of the scope of this blog. He was married to Annah Seipati Masango who was often referred to as Mme Annah.

Under Archbishop Masango, the church grew to unexpected proportions and by the time of his death, he had build 35 Churches. More on Archbishop Masango will follow in coming posts. Contac us on facebook using this link

  16. Dumelang bana besu. I also had this curiosity in my heart where I wanted to know what caused all these divisions in our church. Thank you for creating this web, so we can help one another because when it comes to the history of our church, we know nothing. Sibonga kakhulu, kodwa I have come across the story of the late prophetess Mme Christinah and I would like to get some insight on our founder late Arch Dr. PJ Masango, because he was mentioned in the visions of our late prophetess Mme Nku. It was clear stated that he was gonna be powerful and we would like to get more info on his journey as a father of our church.

  22. What a special webside! To all St. Johns Apostolic Faith Mission members; Let`s use this opportunity to share Testimonies of our Beloved Father Dr. PJ Masango. What I can assure you is that u Baba a ngeke a sikhohlwe(Our Father will never forget us). Let`s leave all church troubles, split and feud to him. Psalm 27 "An Exuberant Declaration of Faith" It reads; Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait I say on The Lors!
    Thanks

  25. Togo Govuzela from Sharpeville in the Vaal. Prophet Christina Nku and Baba Masango tought us Christ... JESUS IS THE WONDER.. Anything you ask in the Name of JESUS shall be.... Let's not praize idols. We amapostola we tend to like into'zesonto more than God who made us to have all these things we have, because if it wasn't for him, this Church wouldn't have had the blessing it has now... We are so luck ma St.John's amahle... JESUS CHRIST IS THE OWNER OF THIS CHURCH, only through him we can get closer to GOD.

    Thank u for your time, if I offended you in anyway please forgive me, we are one

  34. Ukuthula bantwana baka baba. I am a former member of the church who decided to move out of the church amicable after i realized that i needed to know Christ more and have a personal relationship with him and the holy spirit. I was born in St John and my parents are reverends in the church but i believe i was not called in the church. All i wanted was this wonder making Jesus since little was said about him i felt very uncomfortable staying and i decided to leave in 2001, which was difficult though considering that i was born in the church but i had to go forfeiting my membership, brass band, mokete,izihlabeleli and many things. Many bad things were said will happen to me but instead grace and mercy of God followed me till today and i am more prosperous than before. I still love the church and will never despise it but only if the church can preach more of Jesus and his salvation. Tell people that Jesus is the only way to heaven and there is NO shortcuts just becuase your membership tickects have are up to date or ugqoka isembatho does not mean automatic entry to heaven unless you confess Jesus as the Lord and saivour. It is my prayer that this truth be revealed to you as you read this message. Amen and be blessed

    2. We are not stupid nehi please dont treat us like stupid people. Why do you have to say God of baba Masango instead of just saying God. I was born by parents who are members of St John in fact @ chome in our own yard there is a church but I decided to leave the church after realising that Jesus is disappearing and is being replaced by baba Masango. All the songs with the name Jesus are being replaced by the name of Baba Masango. This is pure Idolatry

    3. You know my friends I'm only 2 years in ST John, Lekokoaneng Lesotho.I dont want to say I like this discussion but it is interesting to see how earthly people judge each others ways of getting close to God.And my friend who left ST John for another church, which is abviously Pholosoa from the way you talk, I would want to say wat I always tell people: A God- Man relationship is such a personal relationship and it is your rite to choose a way that MAKES SENSE to you, God gave use the bigest gift as human beings, free-will. But don't judge; We will call Molimo a ntate Masango le 'Me Anna because that's wat works for us and the name of Jesus will never die as is the name of Moses, Nkho Mantsopa, Ntate Moholo Matita, Ntate Matsoso and the other prophets who were give that which me and you don't have, a place close to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

    4. Hey, listen to this:
      "tlong ho jeso, le tleng ka pele,
      lentwe la hae le supa tsela
      le ena o teng ka sebele
      ontsare tlo honna"
      Do not get the message wrong, Father Masango has never replaced Jesus. All we do is thanking jesus for bringing us this wonderful prophet who performed miracles with the power from Jesus.
      All you need to know is,tshebetso ya St John ke tshebetso ya moya. You may never understand until you always listen to moya wa baporofeta.
      Stop judging the church because u dnt understand whats going on. Take ur time and pray and ask jesus why he introduced St johns in the words.
      "O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
      consider all the works thy hand hath made,
      I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder,
      thy power throughout the universe displayed"
      Then sings my soul, my Saviour God; to thee,
      How great thou art, how great thou art!
      Then sings my soul, my Saviour God; to thee,
      How great thou art, how great thou art!

  40. People here is the thing, it doesnt matter which church you go to, but if you're not going to read the bible urself, ur taking chances with ur life. HOSEA 4:6 states that God says that his people die because of lack of knowledge. If you are going to depend on other peoples ideas and understanding of God(which is not wrong) bt u do not STUDY the word of God urself, indeed ur wasting ur time. Now how do you study the word of GOD? Where do you start? The OLD OR NEW testament? Dear people of God, read Jeremia31:31-40 and you will notice that God says he will greate a new convenent{Testament/Selekane} in which he himself will teach his children and no one will say know "Jehovah". This new convent is actually the new Testament convenent which he reveals himself in a new name and is the only name he RESPONDS to nd JESUS is that name.In the Old testament God used vaious names like Jehovah Shamah, Jehovah Idonai, Jehovah Almighty and the other names to explain what he is, but now all those names are packed into one name that I earliar mentioned {JESUS}. Do you see how i am able to explain, its not because im cleva bt I have Learned To study the word of God myself and also listen to other peoples information, bt ultimately it must be proven with a verse in the Bible{especially the new Testament}

  44. Ukuthula bantwana baka Baba. I am blessed by the overwhelming expression about the foundeing members of our beloved church. My grand parents were also members of St Johns and we grew up in this church and I must say i am where i am today ngenxa yentsebenzelo yabaprofeti.

    However as I am growing more and more in Faith and understanding of the wordd of God. I think really there is a need in our church to embrace Jesus as the book of John is saying that 'For the law was given throgh Mosses;Grace and Truth came through Jesus. John1:17.

    Especialy us, as young people living in the 21st century where the world is being revealed like never before we have a responsibility to embrace Jesus anf his teachnings.
