Our History

The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) was founded in 1952 in Nigeria, following a divine revelation received by a young man whose heart had been set ablaze with an unquenchable desire to personally encounter the Supreme Being, in spite of a prevailing environment of nature worship. Seeking a fervent relationship with the God he still knew little about at the time, Reverend Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi was fired by the intuition that there was a greater power than those commonly known to his people. This pursuit of God led him to the Church Missionary Society where he was baptised in 1927. Yet, remaining largely spiritually unfulfilled, he later joined the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, an indigenous African Church that emerged from the Anglican (Episcopal) Church in Nigeria.

Reverend Akindayomi’s call as a servant of God began whilst still a member of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, a prompting he ignored for several years, until repeated business failures brought him to the point of repentance. This season became the turning-point for him in his relationship with God. Humbled, he made the decision to totally yield to God and His purposes, seeking divine confirmation of a call to ministry. The confirmation he sought eventually came through the Holy Scriptures. By 1947, he had also become increasingly concerned about some of the doctrinal beliefs of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church to which he belonged and became totally persuaded to leave in 1952.

PASTOR (MRS) FOLU ADEBOYE

Mother-In-Israel

Pastor (Mrs) Folu Adeboye is the wife of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) and is greatly admired for her selfless service to the body of Christ and to society. Her concern for the spiritual and physical welfare of people, particularly the less privileged, is demonstrated in great sacrifices of time, talent and resources aimed at improving the wellbeing of vulnerable women and children across the world.

One of her ministry projects – Africa Missions – was set up in 1996 to promote the spread of the gospel in Africa and in other continents. The initiative also encourages the introduction of sustainable development programmes meant to improve the quality of life of vulnerable children, youths, women and families. She remains focused on the call of God on her life, especially through the helps and teaching ministries within and beyond the RCCG.
