Providence Industrial Mission

Providence Industrial Mission. The first independent church related to Ethiopianism in Malawi (formerly Nyasaland), founded in 1900 by John Chilembwe (c.1870–1915). Chilembwe was educated in the USA, and supported then and later by the National Baptist Convention. He organized an abortive rising in 1915. Chilembwe was killed and the rising easily suppressed, but he remains a national hero in Malawi today. His ‘New Jerusalem’ church, built in 1913 at Chiradzulu, was demolished by the authorities. His followers were allowed to reorganize in 1926, under the leadership of Dr Daniel S. Malekebu (also educated in the USA). The Church split in the 1970s. One branch, the Independent Baptist Convention, claims a following of 25,000–30,000, and is a member of the Christian Council of Malawi.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
