About Us

Rivers of Living Waters Ministries was founded by Archbishop Stephen and Pastor Seabi Zondo on the 24th September 1988, at Zone 3 Sebokeng with a total membership of three.

The ministry then moved to a classroom at Sokwazi Secondary School in Zone 8. The place became small as the church was growing very fast. We then, moved to Zone 13, Shadvaal Center, then to Sandamela Highway bottle store and ultimately to the were we are today.

Arriving in Evaton, we started with a yellow and blue 700 seater tent (snow peak). Our growth and development has been consistent and steadfast, with a membership of over 10 000 congregants in Sedibeng alone. We have over 40 branches across South Africa.

In order to maintain our mission and expand our outreach, we have more than twenty service ministries which encourage members to express their various gifts and talents. Rivers of Living Waters Ministries employs over 25 full-time employees. We believe that the local church is a body of believers systematically assembled together by the Holy Spirit with a common vision, having all things necessary for the perfection of the saints.

We believe that every believer must belong to, attached to, firmly fixed in, committed and submitted to a local Church.

As a Church we are committed to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the total person; Spirit, Soul and Body; and to serve the community we live in by freely giving ourselves and our substance, while staying close to God by living a holistic life, and being sensitive to his Spirit through fervent prayer.

Then ndabona no this is a church ngoba ndibona abantu bephethe ibible(s) zabo. Kwak’phakathi neveki thats why ndandinequestions..

    I wd really like to thank Ubaba Archbishop Zondo and his wife , my marriage was about to fall cause of the cheating husband and not supporting me financially and physically, I used to listen to Archbishops preachings on TV but ws so scared to come to the church cause of peoples critics but one day i decided to turn my back on those critics and just go and see for myself . I was warmly welcomed, and felt at home ,and when it was time for prayers i went in front with the photo of my husband to be prayed for. I saw a miracle happen at home. He started to change his old ways. He now knows what a duty of a man in the house is, When i ask for something he will just do it without complaining. My marriage is restored. I’am so blessed. Thank you so much Baba Archbishop Zondo,May God bless u.

    Last week thursday I had opportunity to visited our HQ of RLW International, whoa what a wonderful place. Businesses dominated by african people is well known for bad customer service, hostile environment, unfriendly staff, I found opposite environment friendly staff, real professional service. My Arch Bishop whatever you preach you put into action. My brothers & sisters at HO keep up good work, you doing this for glory of our Lord Jesus His name be glorified. Amen.
