African Christian Fellowship shall be a thriving Christian Community that models integrity, excellence, and compassion to mobilize and empower Africans worldwide to impact their generation for Africa.
A Brief History
In 1991, a Family Fellowship comprising four Christian families in New Orleans metropolis began monthly meetings in the homes of its members. It grew rapidly in numbers and in the ministry of the Word. In 1993, it became a member of the African Christian Fellowship, USA (ACFUSA), and so was born the African Christian Fellowship, New Orleans Chapter, (ACFNOLA). African Christian Fellowship, USA, is the umbrella organization of a large body of about 3,000 members in Chapters spread across the United States, and overseas with Chapters in the United Kingdom and Africa. It began in 1977 as African Christian Students Fellowship, but was later changed to African Christian Fellowship, USA, to accommodate members who were no longer students. An organization which began with some visionary university students has since grown to produce some of the best Christian professionals, and body of Christ in all works of life. In addition the young adults, children of the elder members of the organization are actively carrying on the legacy passed on to them to be fervent Christians, productive and law-abiding, and shining the light of glory of God into the communities they live in.
The African Christian Fellowship is guided by Four Core Strategic Objectives. Each of the principles provide a framework for local, regional, national and international program implementation.
Reconnecting with the continent
Initiate and maintain active and relevant connections with the continent of Africa (through support for missions, church planting, evangelistic outreach, business and economic investments).
Establish viable and productive (cooperative and collaborative) relationships with other Christian organizations (African and other people groups) that share common believes, vision and objectives with the ACF.
Building the ACF Family and Community
Build and preserve a stable, functional, and harmonious Christian community that effectively addresses the spiritual, physical, social and emotional needs, and recognizes the diversity of its members.
Building the human and material resources that are necessary to carry out these objectives.
Passing The Legacy
Inculcate in our children and youth, an appreciation for our cultural and Christian values, thereby equipping them to effectively serve God in their generation.
