From 1884 to 1914 the country was under German colonial rule. At the beginning of World War I the Ewe-speaking region was occupied and divided by Britain and France. The western region became part of Ghana; after the War the League of Nations consigned today’s Togo to France. The history of the church goes back to the efforts of German missionaries among the Ewe in the middle of the 19th century (Norddeutsche Mission, Bremen). The first congr (Mission-Tove) on the territory of today’s Togo was established in 1893. After the departure of German missionaries, the church sought to maintainits unity. In 1922 the Evangelical Ewe church was constituted which included the whole region (President: Andreas Aku, Secretary Robert Baeta). But more and more the two parts developed their own profile while seeking to maintain a constitutional link by a common synod which met every third year. Increasingly, the “Mission de Paris” accepted responsibility for the church in Togo. In 1929 the church in Togo started its own theological school and began evangelistic work among the Kabye in the North. In 1955 the United Church of Christ in the USA started work in Togo, and from 1960 the “Norddeutsche Mission in Bremen” resumed activities. In 1959 the church gained independence. One year later the country became independent. The following years were a period of renewal and expansion. In 1965, faced with the beginnings of dictatorship in the country, the church issued a statement stressing the duty of the churches to raise their voice in public affairs. Evangelistic work was conducted under the motto “The whole Gospel for the whole human person.” In 1984 the church began activities among the Kokomba in the northwest. Ever since 1967 the country has lived under the dictatorship of Gnassingbé Eyadema. Attempts, in 1990, to gain more freedoms for the people did not lead to lasting results.
