6. SPIRITUAL BACKGROUND

a. 1966: I joined the Baptist Church (EBBF, the Baptist Church of lower region of the Congo River); I was the first child (ten years old) to be accepted for baptism in this church. 

b. 1969: I left the Baptist church estimating that I was no more learning anything new. My main concern became then my protection against witchcraft and the Baptist Church could not help in this. Hence I began reading various books. 

c. 1977: I joined the Christian Science Church. 

d. 1986: I had Christian Science class instruction with Martin Auret, CSB of Johannesburg, South-Africa. At the end of the course I realized that I still lacked the knowledge I needed for the fight against witchcraft. Mr Auret encouraged me do this research myself. From this time on I began to delve seriously into this subject.

e. I talked with various Kongo initiates, and began to realize the convergence and the need to approach Christianity in the African epistemology. 

f. 2003: I had Christian Science Normal Class with Tom Black, CSB.

g. 2008: After my graduation from Trinity Graduate School of Apologetic and Theology, I left the Christian Science Church to found the Institut des Sciences Animiques (ISA) an Afrocentric research and initiatory center focusing on African spirituality and epistemology.
