The church split from the Presbyterian Community in Eastern Kasai (cf. no. 2) as a result of both theological and ethical tensions. Its present leader, Moise Kalonji Kaja, originally a minister of the Presbyterian Community in the Congo (cf. no. 1), identifies with the charismatic movement. He first became a member of CPKOR (cf. no. 2) but then decided to set up his own group within the Reformed Community of Presb. The church combines fundamentalist and Pentecostal features. A literalist reading of the Bible undergirds doctrinal orthodoxy. At the same time, elements of African religion are being reinterpreted in the light of the Bible, especially the Old Testament. New revelations, obtained through dreams and visions, are admitted by the church. In addition to the Apostles’ Creed the Church has formulated its own confession of faith, called la “cerpéinne.” Though the church remains attached to its Presbyterian origin, it has, in fact, become an Afro-Christian church. Theological education presents a challenge. The church belongs to both ARCK and WARC.
