Abstract: The scope of the nature and functions of culture is very wide and its components are many and varied. It is a complex phenomenon which can he defined to cover almost every aspect of life. For this reason, no exhaustive and conclusive definition of the subject has ever been put forward, although many definitions have been offered in attempts to show what culture means. The complex nature of culture notwithstanding, many people view it as a simple subject and define it from the angle at which they see any of its many components. Some people look at culture from its aesthetic perspective and thus define it in terms of drumming and dancing while others present it in the picture of certain aspects of religion. This situation does not only bring about misrepresentation but also confusion and conflict especially on the religio-cultural frontiers. The object of this article is to elucidate the nature and the dynamics of culture and its various dimensions and to indicate that it is the product of human achievement in the control of nature. It is a body of learned behaviours which is dynamic and adaptable. It is a social heritage which evolves from generation to generation. It is a factor of unity, pluralistic and a Ideological enterprise which has a biblical basis.
