Our History

On July 4, 1947, a contingent of four Missionary units of Assemblies of God arrived at Chimbewa Village in Ntcheu. They included one team from Tanganyika (now Tanzania) and another one from South Africa. They joined a host Pentecostal group known as the “Full Gospel Church,” led by Laiton Kalambule. The missionaries included Paul Derr, Ragnar Udds, Morris Williams and Magnus Udds from Tanganyika, while Fredrick Burke, Paul Wright, and Moody Wright came from South Africa.

The Assemblies of God Missionaries discussed with Laiton Kalambule that the “Full Gospel Church should become affiliated with the General Council of the Assemblies of God in United States of America. Kalambule’s group accepted and they formed the Assemblies of God in East Africa.

Fundamental Truths

We believe the Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. This statement of Fundamental Truths is intended as a basis of fellowship among us (i.e. that we all speak the same thing, 1 Cor. 1:10; Acts 2:42). The phraseology employed in this statement is not inspired or contended for, but the truth set forth is held to be essential to a Full Gospel ministry. No claim is made that it contains all Biblical truths, only that it covers our need as to these fundamental doctrines.
