ABSTRACT

This paper explores the theology and classificatory model of the Asomdwee Ntonton Nkabom Som. The classificatory model of New Religious Movements that this movement belongs to is unknown and not much has been written regarding its theology as well. Both primary and secondary sources were consulted. The complex and diverse nature as well as variety of taxonomies of New Religious Movements has partially contributed to the lack of consensus regarding having a precise definition. Based on existing classificatory model, this faith was classified as a Hebrais messianic movement. The movement has its unique and distinct theology, which to some extent, is similar to that of Christianity and Islam and this makes the movement to be seen outwardly as an amalgamation of Christianity and Islam. As such, a thorough research regarding the theology and cultural dimension of the faith is significant for Christian scholarship.
