Bet-Shalom means “House of peace”

Our desire is that people will experience peace and love when they enter this sanctuary. This is a multi-cultural church which caters for different languages and cultural groups. We might come from different walks of live, but we are ONE in Christ!

We belong to the family of Full Gospel Churches which is an International church and has been in South Africa since 1910. Our local assembly has been in Polokwane since 1942.

We believe Jesus Christ is the only way to God the Father and that we are saved by grace when we accept Him into our lives as Lord and Savior. We believe in the infilling and working of the Holy Spirit in our everyday lives. We love to worship God when we fellowship together as well as to listen to the Word through teaching/preaching and testimonies.
