The Africa Inland Church, Kenya resulted from the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ by the Africa Inland Mission (AIM). AIM focused on evangelism in cross-cultural missions and the primary objective of the Pennsylvania Bible Institute to train those who would engage in cross-cultural evangelism. These individuals had to understand Scripture well in order to apply Scripture to any situation.
The first AIM missionary team arrived in Kenya in 1895 led by Rev. Peter Cameron Scott who came from the United States of America, though he was not born in America. When Scott and his missionary team arrived in Kenya, they established the first congregation in the eastern part of the country in a place called Nzaui in Ukambani. As a result of Scott’s ministry in Ukambani, many indigenous Kenyans around that area and later other areas responded positively to the gospel. These indigenous people groups became believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and were baptized after thorough teaching of biblical doctrine. They then joined forces with the missionaries, actively evangelized, and planted new churches that were referred initially as a ministry of the AIM.
DIGUNA supports the church in its radio work through technical assistance. This includes the construction of radio towers and studios and the electronic equipment necessary to broadcast(hardware). Members from the church are responsible for the programs that go on air (software).
This includes local music, biblical teaching and sermons, guidelines for sanitation and health,daily news, etc
The first radio station was established in 1995 in Bunia/Congo. Since then stations have been set up in every country DIGUNA is active in. As we continue to work closely with the local church and other organisations this ministry continues to expand. Read more
In 1965, Pastor Chuck Smith began his ministry at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa with just twenty-five people. From the beginning, Pastor Chuck welcomed all, young and old, without judgment, placing his emphasis on the teaching of the Word of God. His simple, yet sound, expositional biblical approach has helped millions better understand God’s Word.
With a sincere concern for the lost, Pastor Chuck and Kay Smith made room in the church and their home for a generation of hippies and surfers; generating a movement of the Holy Spirit that spread from the West Coast to the East Coast, and now, throughout the world.
What began as a small local church has now grown into an international ministry of over 1600 fellowships throughout the world, all in the last 40 years.
