Karen Community Church (KCC) was started in September 1996 by a group of 18 people, commissioned by Nairobi Baptist Church to plant a new church in Karen. It started with worship and Sunday school services at the Kenya Commercial Bank Management Institute. The congregation has since grown to over 300 people, including children, Youth, and Adults. The worship services for these three groups are commonly called Children's Tabernacle, Youth service and Adults Service. We follow a congregation-led church model where the members constitute the top governing body. They do so through the various member's Day such as the Annual General Meeting or through their elected representatives, the Elder's court.
A Place to Belong...A Place to Become
Missions, Evangelism, Discipleship and Fellowship have remained the core engines of the church, and are indeed what makes KCC unique. the sense of community is embodied in the church motto 'A Place to Belong...A Place to Become', and has leveraged members to activate participation in the life of the church.
Missions Mobilized church
The church is fondly referred to as mission mobilized to emphasize its strong commitment to missions. Our first missionary outreach was to Aweer (Boni) people of the Kenyan coast who are predominantly unreached by the gospel. Our cross cultural missions have taken us to as far as china, and nearer to the indigenous Kenyan communities of the arid Nothern Kenya region (Olturot). Our local mission work has seen us actively minister and evangelize in our low income neighborhood of Bulbul.
Life groups are the heart of the church
Life groups are the heartbeat of the church. These home based fellowship and support each other. The church provides spiritual and technical support to the life groups including capacity building for the leaders and Bible study material
Our Key verse
"They devoted themselves to the Apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of the bread and to prayer."
