A ministry dedicated to equipping African Christians for discernment, the defense of the faith, and cult evangelism. Today, cultic spiritual movements are flourishing across Uganda and virtually all of sub-Saharan Africa.

The response of the Christian churches is not yet equal to the scale and severity of the harm caused by these groups and by unsound theological trends. Pastors, Christian workers, and lay believers need a robust and reliable source of factually sound, biblically informed information and analysis so they can identify, answer, and evangelize the wide range of false and defective religious groups that pose a constant challenge to the proclamation of the Gospel and the building of the church.

Mission: In light of the Scripture’s commands to defend the faith once for all delivered to the saints (e.g., Jude 3–4), the Center’s fundamental purposes are to: • Monitor and continuously compile accurate data on new and controversial religious groups active in Uganda and East Africa • Analyze the beliefs and practices of such groups in the light of Scripture, and develop practical apologetic responses • Warn and inoculate the greatest possible number of lay believers against both indigenous and imported cults and aberrant Christian movements • Equip pastors, seminary and Bible college students, Christian workers, and lay believers with tools and training to enable them to recognize and respond effectively to such groups (both apologetically and evangelistically) • Raise up African apologists who will model balanced, biblical reasoning and responses to the challenges posed by heretical movements

“To gain trust, the ‘man of God’ will make you feel that you are lacking something that only he can provide. He seeks to render you helpless and make you hang on his every word—since he makes no mistakes! He perverts Scripture to suit his desires, and creates the illusion that God can only speak to you through him. Once your trust is gained, he preaches ‘love’ by force, demonstrated through a sexual relationship (one of the conditions of the ‘help’ rendered to you). Unfortunately, you are only useful for a season, and once his use for you is done he is on to the next prey. Further, he uses threats and twists the gospel to convince you to keep silent about what you’ve endured. The fake pastor seeks to make you feel indebted to him for whatever he has done for you, his victim, and may even try to make you feel honored to have been used by him.” STOP THE ABUSE—GET THE PAMPHLET HERE:

General information

ACFAR’s mission is rooted in Jesus’ “Great Commission” of Matthew 24, in which He commands His followers to disciple the nations. Biblical discipleship requires bringing believers to spiritual maturity and unity, and in this we must follow the example of the apostles. Our emphasis is threefold: First, we are tasked with equipping God’s people for discernment—that is, helping them distinguish scripturally between truth and error, good and evil, darkness and light—and, very often, in the words of Charles Spurgeon, to know the crucial difference “between right and almost right” that is so often exploited by cults and false teachers. Spiritual counterfeits thrive in the absence of “the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil” (Heb. 5:14). Second, we seek to train believers for the defence of the faith “once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3–4). This command requires us to “earnestly contend” for that faith in the face of opposition—not with human “weapons of mass destruction,” but simply and reasonably, with sincerity and zeal, humbly speaking the truth that God has revealed by His Spirit in the Holy Scriptures. Titus 1 especially requires pastors—who are the first line of defence against error—to “hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that [they] can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.” Third, we seek to mobilize Christians for the neglected but essential task of cult evangelism. This means compassionately helping men, women, and children entrapped in cultic groups to know Jesus Christ as the true and living God, and to grasp the hope that only He can offer them! Today Christians are being targeted by cults and false teachers who seek to deceive, distort, and destroy their faith. Most believers—even pastors—are simply not equipped to combat this. ACFAR is training pastors and other Christian workers to understand and apply biblical truth so they can respond effectively to the spiritual confusion and opposition that surround us. By God’s grace, we are pursuing this work through research on cultic movements, through radio ministry, and by producing and distributing practical resources to meet the widespread hunger for answers.
