HISTORY OF RCCG
In July 1909, a son was born into the Akindayomi family of Ondo State of Nigeria. Even though this child grew up surrounded by idol worshippers, he knew there existed a greater power and yearned to know the God who created the earth and everyone on it. He joined the Cherubim and Seraphim church in 1931.
Whilst there, he began to hear a voice within him saying, “You will be my servant”. Since this was not his intention, he decided to ignore the voice. This went on for seven years during which all the business ventures that he tried resulted in failure. In debt and without peace of mind, he found himself totally dependent on the grace of God. This point marked the beginning of a definite relationship with God. Totally broken, he yielded saying, “Lord I will go wherever you want me to go”. He asked for signs to confirm that this was indeed God’s call. The confirmation came through the Bible passages of Jeremiah 1:4-10, Isaiah 41:10-13, and Romans 8:29-31.
In 1947, he started to worry that the Cherubim and Seraphim church was departing from the true word of God in some of its practices. By 1952, he felt totally persuaded to leave the church. He started a house fellowship called, the Glory of God fellowship at Willoughby Street, Ebute-Meta, Lagos. Initially there were nine members but before long the fellowship rapidly grew as the news of the miracles that occurred in their midst spread. The Redeemed Christian Church of God was born in 1952, destined by the Lord Himself to take the world for Him. The church continued to meet at 9, Willoughby Street until they were able to acquire some land thereby witnessing a relocation to the present site of the Headquarters of the church at 1-5 Redemption way, Ebute-Metta, Lagos (formerly 1a, Cemetery Street).
Sometime in the early 70s, God spoke to Pa Akindayomi about his successor. The Lord told him that the man, who was not a member of the church then, would be an educated young man. Thus when a young University lecturer joined the church in 1973, Papa was able to recognize him in the spirit as the one that the Lord had spoken about in the past. This man, Enoch AdejareAdeboye who was then a lecturer of Mathematics at the University of Lagos soon became involved in the church. He became one of the interpreters translating Pa Akindayomi’s sermon from Yoruba to English. He was ordained a pastor in the church in 1975.
Pa Akindayomi was 71 years old when he died. Amidst controversy, Pastor Adeboye’sappointment was formalized by the reading of Pa Akindayomi’s sealed pronouncement after his burial. Since 1981, an open explosion began with the number of parishes growing in leaps and bounds. At the last count, there are at least about 2000 parishes of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Nigeria. On the international scene, the church is present in other African nations including C’oteD’ivoire, Ghana, Zambia, Malawi, Zaire, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Gambia, Cameroon, and South Africa. The Church is spread all over Europe, United States, and the Caribbean.
“For the Lord GOD will help me, therefore shall I not be confounded; therefore have I set my face like a Flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.”- Isaiah 50:7.
