Photos and narration by Marthinus Daneel of baptism among African Independent Churches in Zimbabwe. Baptism varies greatly across African Initiated Churches. For some, it is very straightforward, with minor adaptions of inherited traditions; for others, baptism incorporates many elements from the existing African context. This commentary is based on photos from the Baptism album, and prominently features the Apostolic-type churches, Ethiopian-type churches, and scenes from a mud baptism from the Zion Christian Church.
