    History

    In 1991 President Vern Marble of the Zimbabwe Harare Mission went to Zambia to search for a couple who had been baptized in England, Johnson Makombe and his wife, Noria. With the help of a taxi driver he found them, and missionary work was begun. The Church was formally registered in July 1992, and that same month a branch (a small congregation) was organized in Lusaka, with a membership of about 50.

    By the end of 1992 there were about 100 members, and by the end of 1997 the membership had grown to more than 500. To accommodate this increase in membership, a second branch was established in Libala.

    The first Church building was dedicated in Lusaka in 1998. The seminary program was established in Zambia in 1995. The first Church building was dedicated in Lusaka in 1998.
