Angus Buchan is an honest and sincere South African farmer of Scottish descent.  His gentle but uncompromising faith has carried him through droughts, financial crises and family tragedies.  He has seen God perform miracles and wonders to provide and heal.  When God called him to preach the gospel, he did not hesitate to obey, and his obedience has lead to a powerful ministry around the world.


In 1980, he started the Shalom Ministries to preach in his local community. Over time he has become a full time evangelist whilst the farm is now owned and being run by both his sons. In 1998, Angus wrote a book about his life, Faith Like Potatoes, the book was turned into a film of the same title in 2006.


Angus believes:


  • The Bible to be the inspired, the infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • In the Eternal Triune God.
  • In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • That for the salvation of the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
  • In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • In the creation, test and fall of man, as recorded in Genesis; his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain to divine righteousness apart from God.
  • In the Lord Jesus Christ, the Saviour of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, very God and very Man.
  • In the Spiritual Unity of Believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
