The AGUC was formed in 1964 by an untrained pastor who left the National Holiness Mission after a dispute over administrative matters. Due to negligence and insufficiently qualified personnel, disorder in the membership and in the church grew (for example, polygamists were admitted to church office). Fellowship in 1970 with the EACE and the ICCC (membership was later dropped) brought the church in touch with missionaries of the IBPFM and with Ref theology. A group of younger pastors, trained at the Bible College of East Africa, were instrumental in reforming the church in 1982 by removing polygamous leaders and rewriting its constitution. The AGUC maintains the Baptist Confession of Faith (1689). Most of the congr are in rural areas. The need for worship places within walking distance has been met by establishing numerous preaching stations and training additional lay preachers. Two thirds of Sunday worshipers are not communicant members yet. Every month each regional council holds an “evangelistic outreach” in which visits from house to house are made.
