Description

Much good academic work has been done on the mainline churches in many African countries. But less so on the "smaller" missions and the churches that they founded. This book describes the history of one of the "smaller" churches the Zambia Baptist Association with its roots in Malawi (1905) and its missionary connections to England, South Africa, Sweden, Australia and finally to the Liebenzell Mission in Germany. It is thus one of the many contributions needed for the writing of a history of the Evangelical churches of Africa.

Introduction

The Baptists came to Zambia at the beginning of the last century (1905). The Baptists in Zambia had quite a big influence especially among the Lamba people to whom the pioneers felt called. A Baptist church developed together with the educational work of a boys' school and a clinic. To understand the history of the Zambia Baptist Association (ZBA), there is need to look into the two main historical 'streams' the ZBA derived from. One stream came from Malawi through the Nyasa Industrial Mission (NIM), which was later taken over by the South African Baptist Missionary Society (SABMS). The SABMS directed the Scandinavian Baptist Mission Society to the Mpongwe area to start mission work, which developed into Mpongwe Baptist Association (MBA). Due to the political tensions between South Africa and Zambia after independence in 1964, the SABMS finally withdrew and the Australian Baptist Missionary Society took over the work among the Lamba people, which became the Northern Baptist Association of Zambia (NBAZ). The other historical stream came from Zimbabwe. A few local Baptist churches, also connected to the Baptist Union of South Africa (BUSA), formed the Rhodesian Baptist Association (RBA), which became the Baptist Union of Central Africa (BUCA). BUCA entered Zambia and 1 concentrated their work on the Copperbelt , where Rev A.J. Cross, the missionary from the SABMS focused his attention. In the beginning, the BUCA churches were white churches, but due to the influence of George 2 Smith, vernacular churches were established and spread to all the towns on the Copperbelt. The International Miners' Mission assisted BUCA in financing church buildings and pastors. The ZBA became BUCA in Zambia. In mid 1970s, three associations, the NBAZ, the MBA and the ZBA formed the Baptist Union of Zambia (BUZ). In the mid-1980s, the Liebenzell Mission International (LMI) came to work in partnership with
