The Brethren in Christ Church is a global family of churches, united by our love of Jesus, love of each other and our common vision. With a history that dates back to the late 1700s, the Brethren in Christ church formed in Pennsylvania as an expression of the Anabaptist faith community.
The Brethren in Christ Church of Canada works in partnership with the Brethren in Christ Church of Zambia to extend its ministries within Zambia and across the African continent. Their vision is to be a growing faith community, following Jesus, sharing his message and extending his peace around the world. As a practical expression of this partnership, BIC Canada is working with Macha International Christian School, a BIC primary school in Zambia, by providing leadership development and capacity building.
Founded in 1906, the Brethren in Christ Church of Zambia consists of 182 churches and over 40,000 attendees. As an extension of these local congregations, the BIC Church also has an important social presence in Zambia, operating a hospital, several schools and a thriving compassion ministry.
