dc.description.abstract African Independent Churches in Southern Africa consist of two major categories, Zionist and Ethiopian churches, with a third minor category of Messianic churches. Other researchers prefer to make a distinction between a religion of the Book and a religion of the Spirit, these churches varying along a continuum between the two. This article focuses on the Zionist churches and the role played by Pieter L Le Roux in the establishment of a segment of these groups and churches. Le Roux was, initially, a missionary for the Dutch Reformed Church (DRC) before joining the Zionist movement initiated by John Alexander Dowie from America. Later he joined the Pentecostal movement of John G Lake and Thomas Hezmalhalch. His involvement with black leaders led to the establishment of a conglomeration of groups from both Zionist and Pentecostal (or ‘Apostolic’) backgrounds. en
