ABSTRACT The dialogue between religion and science and technology has ranged for years. Science and technology has been seen as being oppose to religion because it depends on logical proof to all existence while religion on the other hand is based on revelation as the basis of truth and existence. They are therefore viewed in modern times as two opposing departments even though at the same time they complement each other. The role of the contemporary church is not only to help the congregation spiritually but also attend to their physical needs. One of such churches is an African Independent Church with the name of Kristo Asafo Christ Reform Church. This church was founded by Apostle Kwadwo Safo. The founder seeks to address the needs or problems of not only the church but Ghana and the whole of Africa through science and technology as a fulfillment of the objectives of his call. This therefore set the tone for the thesis; to research into the science and technological activities of Apostle Kwadwo Safo and the Kristo Asafo Christ Reform Church and examines how it is impacting on the lives of people. To achieve the set objective of the thesis, therefore, the study used a multi-dimensional approach such as historical, phenomenological and theological approaches in its investigation. These approaches helped in tracing the personality of Apostle Kwadwo Safo, his call and the establishment of the church. They also helped in identifying the beliefs and practices of the church and the basis of his adventure into the area of science and technology. The researcher utilized tools such as questionnaires, interviews and participant observation in the data collection processes. The research revealed that Apostle Kwadwo Safo set out to undertake the scientific and technological activities not to amass wealth for his own interest but as a fulfillment of a divine call that enjoined him to save the African continent from its economic and scientific setback. The research also revealed that Apostle Kwadwo Safo has established a Technological Training Centre where scientific and technological parts and equipments such as car engines, stabilizers, welding machines, amplifiers, electronic drums etc are made. He is also into the provision of educational and health facilities, agriculture as well as real estate development. The research showed that these developments are viable and have the potential for further growth.
