Hebrews 11:6 ...And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

AIC ZION
A.I.C. Zion is located 7 Km. from the Nairobi city center in the heart of sprawling Mathare slum. It has been said that this slum forms the 2nd biggest slum in Africa. Challenges of this area are many: unemployment, illiteracy, lack of good shelter, poverty, not to mention proper diet. This has led to commercial sex, brewing of illicit liquor, and drug abuse. In addition to that there are other urban demanding needs with financial implication namely: transport, rent, fuel and the like.
 

AIC Mathare was started by the Mother church AIC Ziwani in April 1989. The initial membership was 30 people mostly children and young people. The original location was at Kiboro Primary School, but later it was relocated to Mathare Youth polytechnic hall and now Zion A.I.C. Zion is located 7 Km. from the Nairobi city center in the heart of sprawling Mathare slum. It has been said that this slum forms the 2nd biggest slum in Africa. Challenges of this area are many: unemployment, illiteracy, lack of good shelter, poverty, not to mention proper diet. This has led to commercial sex, brewing of illicit liquor, and drug abuse. In addition to that there are other urban demanding needs with financial implication namely: transport, rent, fuel and the like. The leadership realized the locals were not only requiring spiritual help but also physical, hence need for school and health center. To respond to that, A.I.C Zion education center was established in January 2005, with only 16 children but now the school has an enrolment of over 500 children. To date AIC Zion – Mathare church has brought some impact to the community, whereby most of the church faithful were preached and started attending church services hence many have changed their way of living. The church has also introduced sporting activities for the youth whereby most of the youths have been attracted by the sports and many have turned to Christ. To date AIC Zion has a congregation of 700 members most of them being youths who are from the slum.
