Information about Oneness Pentecostal gospel music

Apostolic Church of Ethiopia

The first leader of the Apostolic Church of Ethiopia (ACE) was Bishop Teklemariam Gezahegne (1937–2022).

They have their own songs, as there is little interaction between Oneness Pentecostals and Trinitarian Christians in Ethiopia.

The Apostolic Church of Ethiopia conducts annual conferences in Wara (Sidama Region), which are attended by very large numbers of people.
