Abstract: This article proposes to debate the relationship between mobility, faith and belonging, exploring the idea of “moral circumscriptions” to describe how one particular African Christian movement, the Tokoist church, experienced a historical process of territorial transcendence, from a regional, ethnic movement to a global venture, responding with a complex set of ideologies attached to ideas of place. The article highlights the – often tense and conflictual – political and ideological processes of identitary construction developed within the church.
