The notion of independence and rendering of service to the African Independent/Indigenous Churches.
As a participant observer within the African Churches, the author has observed that these churches are not only a challenge to the established churches but also to
the established and non established theological institution. The future Bill of Human Rights of South Africa will include a clause to the effect that all religions are equal.
Thus the African Independent/Indigenous Churces have an important role to play in this regard in terms of their numbers, unfortunately weak in quality. Hence, the author makes an appeal to theological institutions to help these churches.
