Introduction / History

The Aghem are an industrious people with a highly organized social structure. The majority live from subsistence farming with some cattle herds and cash crops contributing to the economy.

The Aghem people have many churches but the truth of the Gospel has yet to penetrate the general fabric of the society. Syncretism is pervasive, with appeasement of the 'ancestors' being considered critical to success in all aspects of life, whether harmonious family relationships, thriving crops, or good community projects. There is, however, a small core of believers emerging who are turning away from the rituals and sacrifices and are depending on Christ alone to meet every need. Unity is a deep-seated value for the society. Unfortunately, since many rites are performed by the whole community, those refusing to participate tend to be ostracized by their kinsmen. It is often easier to keep silent and keep unity rather than take a strong stand against the syncretism.
