Bantu Values and Spirituality

Role of Bantu Values and Spirituality in the Inculturation and Globalization of the Gospel
within “Fraternité Evangélique de Pentecôteen Afrique au Congo” (FEPACO)


This study will examine the role Bantu values and spirituality have played in the inculturation
and globalization of the Gospel among FEPACO churches in the Democratic Republic of
Congo. Particularly, the study will explore how aspects of Bantu tradition and Christian faith
have been appropriated and integrated to form an authentic Congolese Christian identity.


Following an ethnographical research design, data will be collected from three flourishing
FEPACO local churches respectively in the town of Bunia, Mahagi and Kinshasa in the
Democratic Republic of Congo.


Data collected will be analyzed to generate themes and patterns that will inform the
understanding of the role Bantu values and spirituality have played in the inculturation and
globalization of the gospel within the Fraternité Evangélique de Pentecôteen Afrique au
Congo (FEPACO) in Bunia, Mahagi and Kinshasa. Findings from the study may be
generalized to FEPACO and other indigenous Pentecostal churches in Congo.

Principal Investigator: George Pirwoth Atido, World Christianity, Université Shalom de
Bunia, Democratic Republic of Congo.
