We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Bible is God’s written revelation to man and that it is verbally inspired, authoritative, and without error in the original manuscripts.

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven, present ministry of intercession for us, and His return to earth in power and glory.

We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of the new birth in an unbeliever and indwells believers, enabling them to live a godly life.

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but because of sin, was alienated from God. That alienation can be removed only by accepting through faith God’s gift of salvation which was made possible by Christ’s death.

Our Beginning

Christ the king parish began inessay conclusion template 1974 as an outstation of St. Michael Parish Langata, by then under the pastoral care of Guadalupe Fathers from Mexico.

In 1992 Fr. Arturo Arreguin was appointed as an assistant parish priest St. Michael’s parish Langata, and his pastoral work involved visiting the small Christian communities in Kibera. It soon became tiresome for him to trek a long distance every evening   back to his residence. Thus he decided to live and work in the slum (in Lainisaba), which was a sub-parish of St. Michael’s parish Langata. A priest’s house was built up to facilitate his work. As he came closer to the community the number of Christians continued to increase, leading to the formation of more small Christian communities.

In November 1997, during Christ the king feast celebration, Fr. Roberto Figueroa Gomez who was by then an assistant priest, requested the Archbishop of Nairobi, His Grace Raphael Ndingi to officially recognize Christ the king as a parish; because the number of Christians had already increased and thus there was a need to move services closer to the people.

In 1998, Christ the king was officially declared a parish (recognized as a parish) within the Archdiocese of Nairobi. Since then the number of Christians continued to increase and hence enabling the formation of more small Christian communities and different parish groups.

Currently the parish is divided into five sub-parishes with 44 small Christian communities. We have other parish groups which includes; Youth, PMC, Choirs and Catholic women association among others.

We implement our pastoral strategic plan through five departments, parish pastoral council and parish groups.

In January 2007 the construction of a permanent church started, with the efforts of our community, with the assistance of Guadalupe Fathers and St. Patrick missionaries. Through the efforts of these communities we have managed to reach the present status of our church.

We pray that the presence of the Catholic Parish of Christ The King in the slum of Kibera may be a vivid sign of the Kingdom of God.

We thank the almighty God for bringing us this far and all who have contributed to make our parish a reality.
