African Initiated Churches, African Independent Churches, and African Indigenous Churches
Protestant churches in Africa with the areas of strongest participation cosmos in Kenya, Nigeria, and Southern Africa. Most often they arose as disagreements between African Christians and Western Missionaries. Although many have been influenced by the western missionaries, the difficulty was plant in the African traditions being blended with Christianity.While many of them share ethnical assumptions, most reject the traditions of African religion as evil. The growing come of churches can be attributed to the charismatic feel of their religious practice. For example, they may on the whole wear the same color robe with the same pattern or design on them to distinguish themselves from the more traditional religions.They still contend a certain amount of syncretism and consumption it as a excogitation to bring African Christians together. In an effort to be identified with Christianity they intromit holy place Spirit in the name for some of their churches.The premise for the us e of Holy Spirit is that they exist as an intentional act of the Holy Spirit who, they believe, is able to move about and do whatever he wants to do unencumbered by traditions or any other synthetic parameters.The role it plays in the 21st century has been one of theological schooling and church administration. However, the one thing that causes them to grow at such a rapid pace is the practice of healing and promised protection from evil.They declare a message of hope to the African people by preaching Christian values that include healing and protection from evil spirits, and by so doing they offer implicit theology that appeals to the African people.
