Introduction / History
The Kohumono people live along the Cross River which is located in southeastern Nigeria. It is primarily in rural settings with Cameroon bordering to the east.

The Kohumono earn their livelihood through fishing, farming, trading and civil servants.

What are their beliefs?
In 1911, Christian workers from the southern Nigerian city of Calabar paddled the rivers to bring the Gospel to the Kohumono people. Churches have grown up in the wake of the Good News. Now a second wave of help is needed by believers who have never had direct access to God's Word in the language they understand best.

Devoid of Scripture, church-goers have little understanding of the faith they've claimed. Interest in their own Scripture was generated through neighboring groups with mother tongue Scripture. Does God really understand their thoughts if they can't communicate with Him in their heart language?

For generations, many Kohumono believers have added "Christian" practices to a plethora of African animistic traditions. They are missing the main point of the Gospel: Christ's deliverance from fear and self-initiative and His gift of abundant life through His death. Pray that the truth of the Gospel will penetrate hearts, displacing the need for mixing religious traditions.
