A few numbered Christians by the time of the invasion, became many under the sever persecution. Again in order to stand stronger, all the believers in different areas began fellowshipping together. When the invaders left the country after fife years these fellowships became strong unions of Ethiopian Kale Heywet Church.
Persecution of the church continued further during the Orthodox Christian Imperial Monarch’s time. But the church struggled and gets its legal permission in 1962.
Since then the church continued its holistic ministry and expanded a lot within the country and became the number one large Evangelical Church. Today Ethiopian Kale Heywet Church is planted within the whole Regional States and city administrations of the Country, comprising more than eight million members.
