Church History

Church History

The first recorded worship service was convened on October 10, 1911 at Magajiya house. All that these pioneer members could do was to worship and pray for the fear of being harassed by non Christians if effort was made to dedicate Sunday as a day of formal worship. There was neither the reading of the scriptures nor collection of offering because the non-believers threatened the existence of that tender beginning.

A house of worship was built in June 1914 on a plot of land that was acquired from Mr. Thomas Oyateru, from Ogbomoso. The building was erected on Cole Street, Jos.

Formal organized worship continued in the building until February 17, 1929 when the members moved into a new sanctuary of land on which our new building was erected which was donated by Mr. E.F. Adebayo. Mr. E.F. Adebayo died in November 1939. Rev. A.L. Olopade was the officiating minister for the occasion. He used II Chronicles 6:6 as the text for his message. There were 554 people in attendance and offering was collected. This formal organization of the church was done during the evening worship service on that same day. Rev. A.L. Oiopade officiated.
