Chapter Summary

The Pare experience was the cradle of Tanzanian Adventism and pointed beyond its humble beginnings in various ways: Land had been "marked out" for exclusive missionary use by Adventists, a setup of operations that differed from Europe in a striking way; A Tanzanian church with African leaders had developed in one and a half decades; The boundary agreements with the neighbouring Leipzig Mission and the irritations in these interdenominational relations reflected Adventism's double identity as a remnant and a projected folk church; While using the same missionary methods as other emerging churches and thus being a church like others to a considerable extent, Adventists in Pare continued to believe in possessing a special call: being God's remnant in Africa.
