About The King’s Church Durban
The King’s Church, Durban, which was established in 2008, and meets at Highway College in Pinetown is a community of believers from various national and ethnic backgrounds who have been joined together in the Lord Jesus Christ, by the Holy Spirit. We have a passion for experiencing the authentic faith of Jesus that was originally entrusted to the first apostles, as revealed in the Scriptures, and to share it with others. (See our faith statement) We are committed to following and obeying Jesus as God’s King and Head of the Church. As we experience the love of God through Jesus Christ, we endeavour to minister God’s love and grace to the community of Durban. The King’s Church is a place where light meets darkness and the darkness has to flee.
