Africa was crucial in early Christianity. In the first three centuries the majority of the seminal theologians were born and bred in the African continent.

Dr. Andrew Walls, missionary to Sierra Leone and Nigeria and now professor at the University of Edinburgh, teaches on the history of Christianity in Africa.

One can argue that western theology itself was born in Africa, because its pioneers are the three great African venerations, Tertullian, Cyprian and Augustine.

The earliest translation of the New Testament belongs to Africa.

Christianity is indigenous to Africa. That there is a story that shows Africa as historically Christian, primordially Christian – Christian not only before the white man came, but before Islam came.
