  • African independent churches have gained a following of over half the population especially among men.  Their beliefs  range from an evangelical theological position to a high degree of compromise with polygamy, witchcraft, ancestor veneration and appeasement sacrifices.
  • The large "Zionist" movement strongly emphasizes both Pentecostal gifts and traditional African spiritual customs.  Pray these groups might be shaped by Scripture and directed by the Holy Spirit.  Pray also for increased interaction between Zion and evangelical churches; this will teach and benefit both groups.
