The doctrinal controversy within the Kimbanguist Church, Église de Jésus-Christ sur la Terre par son Envoyé Spécial Simon Kimbangu, reached a new climax in July 2008: Moderate teaching on the person of Simon Kimbangu on the one hand and on the divine Trinity on the other, which had been the church's official doctrine since 2005, was solemnly revoked by an assembly in Nkamba, D.R. Congo and by the church's leader, the Chef spirituel, to be replaced more or less directly by the common popular Kimbanguist belief: Simon Kimbangu is God, the Holy Spirit incarnate. But the theologians who had formulated the former moderate teaching do not accept this new turn in the Kimbanguist Church's doctrine. The article gives the arguments and strategies of both sides and reflects on the possible future development of the Kimbanguist Church.
