The Africa-Centered Christian mission

All texts are subject to perversion, but if you can change the way people perceive the text and the tradition of the text, you can alter the nature of its social use. At one time, Christian faith was a source of great strength and power for Afrika. It ceased to be, not because Christ’ word or power changed, but because those who wanted to colonize and enslave Afrikans changed the interpretation of those words and that tradition into something that denigrated them rather than empowered them. Our task as servants of the Lord working among and for Afrikan people is to change it back.
