Our Church Background

Ruwe Holy Ghost Church of East Africa is an African indigenous Church predominantly among the luo ethnic community of western Kenya, eastern Uganda and northeastern Tanzania. It traces its origin to the Roho (Holy Spirit) movement in western part of Kenya as early as 1912 in Ruwe, Ugenya, Siaya County in Kenya. From late 1930s to early 1960s the movement had assembled a good number of catechists and believers in the transformational power of the Holy Spirit. The continuous expansion of the movement coupled with its belief in the power of the Holy Spirit through prayer as the only and true way to a transformed life, the suspicion mistrust and misunderstandings by the colonial authorities, local communities and the missionaries, led to theological tension and eventual break from the C.M.S mainstream (Anglican) Church in 1933.
