Statement of Faith

The Kenyan American Community Church is part of the Universal Church; Worshiping God Almighty, All-wise, and All-loving, in Trinity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, the same in substance, equal in power and glory; adoring the Father, infinite in majesty, of whom are all things; confessing our Lord Jesus Christ, the Eternal Son, made very man for our salvation, glorying in His cross and resurrection and owing obedience to Him as the Head over all things in His Church; trusting in the promised renewal and guidance of the Holy Spirit, proclaiming the forgiveness of sins and acceptance by God through faith in Christ and the gift of eternal life; and laboring for the advancement of the Kingdom of God throughout the world.

This Church receives the Word of God, contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, as its supreme rule of faith and life; avows the fundamental doctrines of the Catholic faith founded thereupon, and in its interpretation and teaching thereof adheres to the guiding principles of the Protestant Reformation.

This church receives the historic Confessions of the Faith known as the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and Short Catechism as containing the same substance.

This Church expresses the faith of the Reformed tradition. Central to this is the affirmation of the majesty, holiness and providence of God who creates, sustains, rules and redeems the world in the freedom of sovereign righteousness and love.

The government of this church shall operate on the following principles;

A larger part of the Church, or a representation of it, should govern a smaller part or determine matters of controversy which arise therein; that in like manner, a representation of the whole should govern and determine in regard to every part, and to all the parts united; that is, that a majority shall govern; and consequently, that appeals may be carried from lower to higher governing bodies, until they are finally decided by the collective wisdom and united voice of the whole Church. For these principles and this procedure, the example of the Apostles and the practice of the early Church are considered as authority (Acts Ch. 15)

 Kenyan American Community Church has profound Kenyan African roots. We are committed to encourage Kenyans to celebrate and share our Kenya-African cultural heritage and our distinctiveness with the larger American society. In doing so we shall acknowledge and celebrate God’s gift of diversity.
