We are not CCAP rebels —Rev Chimwemwe Mhango

Founder of Redeemed Presbyterian Church (RPC), Rev Chimwemwe Mhango, has dispelled reports among Christians that he and his followers rebelled against the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) Livingstonia Synod, saying the synod actually booted them out.

Rev Chimweme Mhango

“What you hear from people up north here say is like we are rebels. No! We didn’t rebel against the synod but they did not know how to handle us so they let us go,” said Mhango.

The Former Reverend of Livingstonia Synod was speaking on Sunday during the Commissioning of Redeemed Presbyterian Church Mzuzu Branch.

He said as a man of God, he could not just sit idle when he had the calling to found the Redeemed Presbyterian Church.

Rev Mhango added that the newly formed Redeemed Presbyterian Church (RPC) is not a replica or another CCAP Church but a unique new church.

“Yes, we came out of CCAP, but we are not a replica of CCAP or CCAP B. We are very much aware that there are some members who are joining RPC that do not come from CCAP but other denominations,” he said.

To demonstrate that they are drifting from CCAP, the church will be doing immersion and not sprinkling baptisms as is the case in CCAP.

While acknowledging it would not be easy for most people to leave CCAP as they have grown up there, Mhango claimed God told them to go in a different way.

“So we are not going to be Pentecostal or Presbyterians, but God is formulating something very unique. We will not stand against men of God but allow them to use their gifts,” he said.

According to Mhango, the founder of the church, its main objectives are to disseminate the gospel of Jesus Christ, strengthen families and assist the sick and the needy.

RPC has branches in Karonga, Mzuzu, Mzimba, Dowa, Ntchisi, Lilongwe, and Blantyre- Machinjiri.

Rev Chimwemwe Mhango was booted out from the Kanengo CCAP where he was ministering after he refused to be transferred to Euthini in Mzimba. This forced him to establish the Redeemed Presbyterian Church alongside some followers from Kanengo Congregation.

Zakumwamba??? Chonde masukani Ku ndinga zomangidwa ndi Mhangozo. Bwerera lani mu line olo Ku bwerera Ku Nkhoma or Livingston yomweyo. You have really been Brainwashed by Mhango eeee, pepani.

  2. Mudzamva liti says:

    Nkhani ndi makobidi a Mhango; musanamize anthu. What do you mean by saying ‘They did not know how to handle you’? You mean you delibelately refused to go to Euthini so that they do not know how to handle you? Mukamalankhula muzisamala; kunjaku kuli anthu amanganizanso kuposa inu.

  3. Chihaula says:

    Dowa RP Cman wagwanayo Chimwemwe wakoyo. You are nothing to tell us your days are number… even if you and your Chimwemwe and everyone can pray from your idol God’s there is no way our days can be numbered. You are all fake and useless with your So called man of God Chimwemwe Kajiso. Synod will remain and will stand tall…. you are one of people who were brainwashed by Kajiso Mhango…. you need his mercy…..
    But know this our days will never be numbered because of you but our God himself not empty heads like yours…

  4. DowaRPC Man says:

    How many members did RPC have when it was registrered in January 2017? and how many members are there now? mulankhula mutopa. This generation will pass away but the church of God will still be there. Today you enjoy music from Great Angels choir of CAP Church, a breakaway from CCAP. Ndiye Rev Dr Chimwemwe Mhango and RPC abwerere mmbuyo? Never!!!!!! We are one body in Christ. CCAP faithfuls are not saints, nor are RPC members. Forward we go with Redeemed Presbyterian Church with our spiritual fathers. I wish you saw how many applications from Pastors are coming to RPC administration office.
    The problem with you people is that you think that the battle between Rev and the Synod started coz of transfer to Euthini….NO! it started way back in 2001. There are a 100 issues that you dont know,. Osamangolankhula nkhanimusakuzidziwa komwe zinayambira. Those of you insulting the man of God, your days are numbered.

And I lost interest is such Churches.

    Why naming the Church Presbyterian? Why still using the same Cloth color, style as of Livingstonia Synod? The whole of that is to try to fish nsomba zewezedwa kale. Anthu a CCAP… the bible says go preach sadanene kuti wenza somba zili pamphasapa zakufa kale ayi koma go preach….. Koma khuluku ilo lili busy kuweza somba zamuchikubu Man Mhango is real money scavenger.
    People are in a dark about this Mhango Man we knew him long time and some of us we expected this thief to come out yesterday not today.
    Malamulo khumi akanakhala eleven kuti makhuluku onse akubele anthu mzina la Kuyamba ma fake Churches ku Moto….

    Former Man of God Chimwemwe Kajiso Mhango remember that God will never bless you in rebellion. It’s the same synod which transfered you to Kanengo…. and it was the same synod transfered you to Katawa, Embangweni-Loudani, Ekwendeni and Lilongwe Kanengo and its the the same Synod which wanted you to go back north but you refused because of cash and turned against Your own parents. Synod has been there for more than 100s of years and fake REVRANDS were there and they all perished and today it’s your turn you will also go and synod shall stand. Jesus said you the sons of vipers get behind me… you are a real good example of the sons of viper…unfortunately your father is a very good and greatman and he doesn’t deserve to be the viper but you are a cursed generation Chimwemwe. Repent Repent Repent the words from the wilderness says.

    You are claiming the Church now which belong to Synod and thank God most of the Synod members now the warship at TTC building. They have refused to fight with you directly and a cording the highest court in the land is coming with judgement for you to leave the church building with your memebers. I know it’s a losing case already unakakhala wina ukanayambapo kufunafuna lisala kumanga tent…..

    Chimwemwe is un Godly fellow…… You will die like Sadam Hessen. Evil bad man…..
    Get behind me the son of vipers Ana anjoka inu…..with poisonous tongs…singing on the stage as if all is well pamene you are too poisous snakes…. mulungu akuwolange.

  16. komko says:

    What were the grounds for refusing the transfer ? Was not the same Synod that appointed him to Kanengo. He himself as the found of Redeemed church will he not be transferring his pastors? How will he feel if one of his pastors refuses to go to remote areas because people can not offer much. KODI NKHOSA ZA MULUNGU ZILI TOWN MOKHA. DYERA BASI.

  17. Longwe M. says:

    Mwenefumbo leave our Pastor alone. If anything fight us the christian from Kanengo .It shows how wicked you are as you do not even know the whole history.
    Evenif we pay him K1000,000.00 he is our pastor . Who said that Pastor should live a miserable life? God has blessed us through Reverand Chimwemwe Mhango and we can pay any salary. We want our reverends to live a happy life due to the work of God they are doing.
    You should feel shame by relying on the court. That shows that you have not ready the bible in order to understand about the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    WE ARE HAPPY WITH OUR REVERAND AND WE HAVE FREEDOM OF WOSHIPPING.

  20. Generation of Vipers says:

    ITS GOOD THAT CHIMWEMWE MHANGO HAS REALIZED THAT BAPTISM IS NOT SPRINKLING WATER ON ONES HEAD BUT IMMERSION. THUMPS UP FOR THAT, THERE IS ONE MORE TRUTH THAT THE FORMER REV NEEDS TO KNOW, THATS THE DAY OF WORSHIP, ITS ON SATURDAY NOT ON SUNDAY

  22. Chosadziwa says:

    All who are swearing at each other here are Christians my appeal to Rev. C. Mhango and Livistonia Synod find a space within your hearts to forgive one another and reconcile the continue with one church as everybody know CCAP of Livingstonia Synod for what is happening is un Godly please if you are really men of God you will reconcile and accept to minister wherever the synod will allocate you.

  23. Novirikana says:

    Look at the comments against man of God. Behind these there is really a seed that the Livngstonia Synod has been planting over years. No tolerance. Very controversial. Tikamati typical of Tumbukas ndiye muziti we are adding?

  24. Grace says:

    Rev. Mhango, now that you’re an independent church, leave Livingstonia church building. Don’t you feel guilty, as a pastor, starting your Redeemed Presbyterian Church in Livingstonia Synod’s building? Shame on you — leave and find your own place —– nosense !!!!!

    1. chindere says:

      I am not very much into religion, But information i have, the church was built by contributions from members not Livingstonia Synod. Its the church members who vehemently protested the transfer of Rev Chimwemwe Mhango. when the synod could not bow down, the members were for the Rev to stay and start his own church which he enthusiastically accepted. Since Livingstonia Synod Did not contribute anything towards the church, Members as builders and therefore owners of the building thought it wise to claim what belonged to them by telling off livingstonia synod.

  25. pixy says:

    Chipasupasu cha a Khirisitu ku matengo it’s all because of Rev Nyodo who has taken Livingstonia Synod as apolitical party and him as president for life , pure horseshit.

  26. Ambulaje Ambuje says:

    The comment is from a disgruntled member hahaha. Just watch how Redeemed Church is growing. Even if the Redeemed church vacates the CCAP structures, it has the potential to build better churches across the country since it has grown fast like bush fire. Reverend Mhango is man of people. If God says Yes, No one will say No.Go go ! go! tChimwemwe! Livingstonia synod is full of selfish people that’s why it will lose most of its members.

  27. FELLOW CHRISTIAN says:

    Ayi!!!!!!!

    We have talked enough of Rev. Mhango and CCAP Livingstonia. My advice to Rev. Chimwemwe is just concentrate on what you say god has shown you, if indeed it is God, the God I know, HE will do and confirm His word without mans’ council and support. When you continue talking about your estranged relationship, people may not take you serious of Gods’ calling.

    Again, why do you bring in the issue of Christians leaving CCAP and joining RPC? The idea of people LEAVING and JOINING is NOT a healthy trend. We have far too many people who never KNOW the God that has called you. These are the people you need to target NOT those in CCAP or other Churches AYI!!!!!! This is like fishing fish which are already in the basin. Get out, reach out to the society that has not heard your belief. NOT from other Churches!!!!! Show that your Church is an Organism NOT an Organization . Show that it has the potential and ability to multiply and grow. Osati kutapa ku mipingo ina.

    If you keep on talking of CCAP Livingstonia it will be like these Political parties eg UDF and DPP blaming MCP on their problems and yet they have so far ruled fo 23 years and yet still struggle to wean themselves from the shadow of MCP. Think about this Abusa.

  28. Mwenefumbo says:

    I have seen a useless man like Chimwemwe Kajiso Mhango in my whole life. He was posited at Kanengo as Rev. Number 3 since mpingo udakhazidwisila and he saway the potential of cash. He made the congregation to change his salary to K600,000 besides Synod’s salary. When the Synod discovered that he was stealing tithe and building funds they wanted to transfer him to Mzuzu but he refused and prenounced his New Church. He is weaked man. Such so called men of God will perish and die like Sadam Hussain. The goodness Synod is too big and a rock. Chimwemwe Kajiso is just a drop in Lake Malawi. Not even a bucket of water…. no one can fight synod…. never…..
    Chimwemwe Kajiso Mhango is just like Nkhanga pamazila ankhuku…. akukakamila mu church la Synod ku Kanengo pamene iyeyo when he was posted there the Church was already build by other REVRANDS who started the church. The case is with the Supreme Court that he must vacate all the building structures which belong to the CCAP Synod of Livingstonia. Kawalala wachabechabe…… useless senseless rabbish and donkade headed man is Mr Kajiso Mhango….

      A Mwenefumbo! ndikumva nanu chisoni chifukwa chimene mukulankhula simukuchidziwa.Kotero kuti ndibwino kukhala chete pa zinthu zimene sukuzidziwa and comment only those you are sure that you know them.On this let me share you this scripture that you read,as we pray for you that GOD open your eyes and mind that you know the truth. (1 Corinthians 2 v 10 – 16).
      One more free advice in Chichewa chomveka bwino! “Chonde,Chonde ndapota nanu,musamalankhule mau achipongwe kwa atumiki a Mulungu kapena kutukwana kumene chifukwa Mulungu amakwiya nazo ndipo akakwiya nanu sizingakukhalireni bwino! chonde chonde ndikubwelezanso,otherwise mudzakumbukira langizo limeneli,komatu zitavuta zedi! popandanso wolanditsa!
      May the grace and mercies of GOD be with you as you read this scripture!
      Good luck Mr Mwenefumbo
