This book examines the history and ecclesiology of two African Independent Churches in Kenya, the African Orthodox Church (AOC) and the Arthi (Agikuyu Spirit Churches). Githieya considers whether these churches should be considered as Christian or ethnocentric movmements. He argues that the "true church" is not confined to the traditions inherent in this or that denomination, or in this or that country, but in the redeeming and liberating power of Jesus Christ. The church is a liberated community whose identity is provided by its relationship with God; at once Christian, African, and new.
