Reverend Johan du Toit

Rev Johan du Toit

Johan is a visionary, author, teacher of the Word and pastor. He has been a student of the Word since his childhood, and still today.

He was born and raised in a family of ministers in South Africa.  After a season in the banking industry, he entered the ministry as a missionary pastor in Flanders, Belgium, with his wife Gerda, and their two sons. After almost 9 years in Belgium they emigrated to Canada in 1999 and became citizens soon after.  Johan pastored a church north of  Toronto, Ontario for 16 years. His season as a local church pastor came to an end in 2015 when he and his wife relocated to British Columbia. They now reside in Mexico.

As the founder (1997) and President of WordWise Word School Inc., an international correspondence Bible school, he also travels regularly to minister. Most recently in Quebec, he has also ministered in the United States, Trinidad, PNG, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, South Africa, Liberia, Malawi, Ukraine, England, Holland, Switzerland and more.

Johan is a teacher of the Scriptures at heart. In his trademark clear and straightforward style, he shares his insights with clarity in a way that is easy to understand.  His experience as pastor and teacher in many different countries has given him an uncompromising approach to follow the Word of God. His ability to teach the Word is difficult to match.

Johan has his ministerial credentials with GCMF (Global Christian Missionary Forum).

“When we act upon the Word then we reveal the character of the Father” – Johan du Toit


There is something you need to know when you read the books or listen to the teachings of Pastor Johan: he lives what he teaches, preaches, and writes. To him, life is not divorced from ministry and theory has value only, when it is lived. Years ago, before Johan left South Africa, he already exhibited a passion and gift for teaching. The years following in the mission field were revolutionary; his life was tempered, challenged, and even broken. In His wisdom, God deemed these circumstances necessary to form an apostolic character in the life of a man God now uses to disciple others: empowering them with theory and praxis to be effective, living witnesses for His Kingdom. But Johan is not alone. With him is his wife, Gerda. A rare gem who is an able, devoted and loyal companion. Together they invite you to embark on a walk of faith and discovery. It is an invitation to join the present day remnant whom God is calling to pilgrim with Him. Their teachings and mentorship will undoubtedly help you discover the truths necessary to prevail, and much more, to be victorious and live life abundantly!
I met Pastor Johan while filming a Christian TV show in the Toronto area. We both appeared, each in turn on the same program, and we sat next to each other, waiting to appear ... him, his book in hand to present, and I, to sing a few songs, and talk a little about God's work and culture that we are establishing in Quebec and in the French-speaking world. Seeing his book, I ask him if I could see. As I took a quick look, the Holy Spirit drops in my heart to offer him to translate it into French. He accepts on the spot! Not only did I translate his book, but his WordWiseBibleSchool as well. And truly… I've been totally wowed and impacted by his teachings. Pastor Johan became a dear friend to my heart, a counselor and mentor for me. Man of God - man of the Word - man of revelation and wisdom. I wished I had him as a Bible school teacher when I started. I would have saved so much time. But you can - enjoy the ride!

Statement of Faith

1. The Scriptures.   The Bible is the infallible, inspired, authoritative Word of God. (2 Peter 1:20,21) The full counsel of God is found in all of the Scriptures – it is not up to man to decide which parts are valid. (2 Timothy 3:16) The Bible consists of 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 books in the New Testament. We believe the Canons of the Old and New Testaments were inspired by the Holy Spirit, and then closed by the leading of the Holy Spirit, and no other books should be added to them. However, we believe other history and prophecy books do exist, and were kept for our learning outside these canons.

2. The Godhead (Trinity). 
  We believe in the Holy Trinity: God is one, yet exists in three persons, namely the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (See Article) They are co-equal, co-substantial, and co-eternal.

3. Man, his fall and redemption
.   Man is made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26,27). Adam’s disobedience introduced sin into the world, and all born of him fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23). But Jesus “was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification. (Romans 4:25). “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 5:1)

4. Forgiveness. 
  If a believer sins, he has an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, and all he has to do is confess his sin and he will be forgiven and cleansed of all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)

5. Divine healing. 
  Jesus took our illnesses upon Himself to make physical healing of the body available to us. (1 Peter 2:24)

6. Salvation. 
  Anyone who looks to Jesus for salvation is born again and becomes a new creation with eternal life. (John 3:3-19, 2 Corinthians 5:17) Salvation is received by faith alone by grace alone, without works of any kind. (Ephesians 2:8)

7. Water baptism. 
  Baptism is administered upon a personal request following faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God. Baptism happens by immersion in water as an outward expression of the burial of thew life of sin and resurrection into newness of life. (Romans 6:1-11) Water Baptism is NOT salvation, it is a step of obedience AFTER salvation.

8. Baptism in the Holy Spirit
.  The baptism in the Holy Spirit is a promise of God to all believers. The experience is evidenced by the speaking in tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance. (Acts 2:38)

9. Sanctification
.   Without holiness no man can see God. Sanctification is a definite, yet progressive work of grace commencing at the time of the new birth, and continuing until the consummation of salvation. (Philippians 1:6)

10. The resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ.   
Christ rose from the dead and ascended into heaven where He took up His seat at the right hand of the Father, from where He also intercedes for us. (Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 7:25)

11. The rapture of the church.   The Lord will descend from heaven and the church will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

12. The return of the Lord.   After the Tribulation of seven years the Lord will return to set up His millennial kingdom on earth. (Revelation 20:4-6)

13. Hell and retribution.   The one who dies in sin without Christ is hopelessly lost in a literal hell. (Revelation 19:20)

14. Some other rejected teachings.

  • We reject the doctrines of Contemplative Prayer, also called Meditation, which teaches the emptying of the mind through mantras as an acceptable form of prayer. We believe this is a sin, and biblically called sorcery. Biblical Meditation is to fill the mind with the word of God.
  • Oneness Theology, also known as Jesus Only or Modalism
  • Calvinistic Predestination (The false doctrine that teaches some individuals are born predestined for heaven and others for hell, and that mankind has no choice in the matter)
  • Mid-tribulation Rapture and Post-tribulation Rapture
  • Reincarnation
  • Evolution
