African Initiated Churches have grown rapidly during the twentieth century throughout the African continent, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. In South Africa alone an estimated 6,000 AICs represent between 30 and 40 percent of the total black population and close to 50 percent of Black Christianity. The Zion Christian Church of Bishop Lekganyane, with its headquarters at Pietersburg, grows faster today than any other church in the country.
