In this paper I examine how the African Independent Churches of Zimbabwe relate the Christian message to the African world which is still rooted in traditional religion. What shape do their prophecies, faith-healing and exorcisms take in the African context? How do they interpret the Holy Spirit and proclaim the good news? Underlying these questions is the question of whether we are dealing with sects or Christian churches. My main focus will be on the Zionist Church.
