Theology in Africa offers you a chance to experience and explore theology from an African perspective. Therefore, I encourage you to join me as I wrestle with my African traditional worldview. After all, my desire is to develop a biblical worldview.
The aim of theology in Africa is to experience, explore and express sound theology through careful Bible study, critical reading of Christian books, and intentional community building. I call this BBC – Bible, Books & Community.
I believe the Bible is central to our faith and it points us to Christ our Savior. However, we can grow in Christ through intentional fellowship with other believers. After all, we are members of the same body. I believe reading books both old and contemporary can help us commune with believers from different walks of life.
Theology is best done in community. Theology in Africa is all about equipping believers for life in community.
Africans who become Christians should therefore remain Africans wherever their culture does not conflict with the Bible. It is the Bible that must judge the culture.

Why Theology in Africa
The vision of Theology in Africa is to make theology accessible to African Christians through studying, practicing and teaching God’s word faithfully and effectively.
Thus, Theology in Africa offers resources developed with guidance of the 3 pillars of knowing Christ fruitfully and effectively:
Your doctrine can only become sound when you have a biblical worldview crafted through a careful diligent study, godly practice and faithful teaching of the Word of God. Therefore, we need convictions and not opinions that can mislead people. Hence, Theology in Africa will offer resources to help you straighten your opinion.
A conviction that is not supported by godliness denies the power of the gospel. It is like a man who builds a house on sand instead of a rock. God’s Word is the rock that can secure our faith in times of trials. Therefore, Theology in Africa seeks to help you become secure in your faith.
Your doctrine can only become sound when you have a biblical worldview crafted through a careful diligent study, godly practice and faithful teaching of the Word of God.
A lived out conviction should culminate into humility, patience and incessant worship of the living God. When your convictions and life is straightened by the grace of God, you yield to Christ’s call ‘Come and die’ with joy and peace. Thus, at Theology in Africa, we encourage leading a lived out faith.
