dc.description.abstract Christian Faith Based Organizations are one of the largest sectors of development agencies making a significant contribution towards the historical development process and its specific interventions in Mbeere-land of Kenya. The organisations identified as Christian Faith Based Organizations in this article include Christian organizations ranging from Churches, Christian community development or social services registered groups, the local, regional, national and international components of Christian civil society who engage in various dimensions and agendas of development. In the researchers’ argument, in this article, they insist that faith based organization and the rest of society, should all strive to bring abundance of life in both Mbeere-land and beyond. Topics they argued on, is the Transformational Development that the 21st century Africa is in dire need of. Is there any theo-biblical justification for it? Does the work of Christian Faith Based Organizations contradict the efforts of the church or compliment it? In this presentation, the role of significant faith based organizations, such as World Vision and Joint Development Associates are sampled to demonstrate their critical values to the locality. Certainly, there is evidence that many of these Christian Faith Based Organizations provide benefits and impacts that are not always recognized and measurable. Clearly, these organizations tend to instil a sense of belonging, purpose and meaning by offering skills, promoting relationships, health, good morals, spiritual and pastoral guidance, reformed dimensions of development and the creation of a viable natural and socio-political environment for development. Additionally, these organizations tend to provide a real and significant presence in communities dealing with human needs at a personal, family, social group, village, community institutions at individual and corporate levels, from Christian faith value and practice perspectives en_US
