Rev. Billy & Eltha Banks attended Rhema Bible College, USA and he graduated in 2001. They have been in the ministry for over 25 years and have 3 children and 7 grand-children. Spirit of Faith Bible Training Ministries started because God directed them to start a Bible school to impact Kenya and East Africa with the living Word of God. Since the school’s inception in 2012 we have graduated 6 classes with a total of 160 graduates from Kenya and Uganda.



Our vision is to:

a) Teach, train and educate men and women of God in East Africa, who will transform their villages, towns, cities and nations, through teaching, preaching and healing, by the power of God.
b) See transformation in every student who will then be able to bring this to churches and nations, and because of their training, they will be able to teach, preach and heal like Jesus did.


To send trained labourers into East Africa, who operate in integrity, and can make a difference in people’s lives, because it is not what we say that will win the lost, but what we do, or how we live. Our graduates are transformation agents.

What we believe

Statement of faith

  1. We believe that the Bible is the infallible, inerrant Word of God. No other book represents God’s written revelation to mankind.
  2. We believe in the Divine Trinity, that God is One, but is manifested in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – all being co-equal and co-eternal.
  3. We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is fully God and Man.
  4. We believe in the Person of the Holy Spirit. He is not cosmic force, but a Divine Personality.
  5. We believe that salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the Law and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ producing works acceptable to God.
  6. We believe the term “born-again” or “new birth” refers to the New Testament experience of salvation and is the entry point for membership into the universal Church (the body of the Lord Jesus Christ).
  7. We believe in water baptism by immersion as a direct commandment of the Lord Jesus and that this ordinance is for believers only as a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection.
  8. We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the New Birth (salvation).
  9. We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance.
  10. We believe that healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and by the laying on of hands.
  11. We believe that bodily healing is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of every member in the Church today.
  12. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ shall first return to earth for the Church (His Bride) and that His coming back is imminent (soon and very soon).
  13. We also believe that following a period of Tribulation (7 years), Jesus shall later return to earth as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and together with His saints (who shall be kings and priests), He shall reign for a thousand years.
  14. We believe that those who physically die in their sins without accepting Jesus Christ as savior are hopeless and eternally lost in the Lake of Fire and they have no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting.
  15. We believe that the Lake of Fire is literal and the terms “eternal” and “everlasting” (as used in describing the duration of the punishment of the damned in the Lake of Fire)
