There was a shooting at a church near Johannesburg, South Africa earlier today, July 11th. Multiple media sources indicate it was a church with the International Pentecostal Holiness Church. Though we regret the loss of life and the violence in this congregation, the denomination and local congregation are not part of the Pentecostal Holiness Church of South Africa.
Unfortunately, the use of our denominational name has caused confusion for many years in South Africa. The Pentecostal Holiness Church of South Africa, along with others, joins in prayer for these families and those who have been injured.
