By far the majority of the several thousands of independent religious groups in Africa have not yet been descriptionbed in detailed and comprehensive studies. Two noteworthy exceptions are ""The Church of Christ on Earth through the Prophet Simon Kimbangu"" (Kimbanguist Church) centred in the Republic of Zaire and ""The Church of the Lord (Aladura)"", an independent church based in Nigeria. Most scholars with an intimate knowledge of these two particular movements seem to have no difficulty in identifying them as churches.
