Abstract: The key concept of Church as the Family of God conveying current African theology is the continuation of the idea of the Church developed by Africans for African Churches as a result of the second Vatican Council. It may be understood and situated within the context of inculturated evangelization in Africa. This dissertation shows how the concept came into being in the Church of Burkina, established by the Missionaries of Africa who wanted to found ecclesiastical, supportive, fraternal, adult and responsible communities capable of taking the practical details of their development into their own hands. By going over the development of Burkina’s Church as the Family of God from its origin, the author highlights its “instituting actions”. In the light of the conciliar document Ad Gentes, he raises theological questions concerning the development of the Church as the Family of God using the specific case of the archdiocese of Ouagadougou between 1977 and 2002.
