APA - Conakry (Guinea)
The Christian Council of Guinea includes the Evangelical Protestant Church of Guinea (EPEG), which groups together the Christian Missionary Alliance, the Catholic Church and the Anglican Church.
The Christian Council of Guinea, as an interface between the Church and the state and, gives its opinion on issues remotely connected with the country’s socio-political life.
Guinea is also home to other Christian associations.
These include the Association of Evangelical Churches and Missions (AEMEG), a structure that gathers all the evangelical denominations like the Southern Baptist Mission of the United States, the Christian Missionary Alliance, Reformed Mission, the Evangelical Mission of Boké, Assemblies of God, and the Pentecostal Mission of Canada.
The AEMEG has a doctrinal basis and conditions of membership to any new member. The membership procedure is a way of preventing the intrusion of harmful sects in the country.
However, there are also many Christian organizations that are not members of the AEMEG. This structure holds worship for all the evangelical churches and missions in Guinea.
It encourages all the various religious denominations to work together in a “spirit of unity and love.”
