Nigeria is powerful when it comes to religion or churches. In every state of Nigeria, there are more than 20 distinct churches to be found. But in this piece, I’m going to present, in my view and based on my study, the top 9 renown or well-liked churches in Nigeria.
1. The Redeemer Christian Church of God (RCCG).
Pa Josiah Akindayomi invented or founded the Redeemed Christian Church of God in 1952, and Pastor E.A. Adeboye serves as the organization’s current general overseer. The largest church in Nigeria is the RCCG.
The RCCG theater, which is popularly known as the redemption camp, is positioned on over hectares of land which is along the Lagos-Ibadan thruway in Ogun State. The camp alone can accommodate up to 1 million worshipers at a time, and piecemeal from that, it has branches scattered all over Nigeria and indeed, abroad.
2. (MFM) Mountain Fire Cautions Ministry.
Created by Dr. Daniel K. Olukoya in 1989, Mountain Of Fire Miracle Ministry (MFM) also made it on our list of the top 10 biggest churches in Nigeria. Popularly called MFM, it has its own theater, “Prayer,” and also has branches worldwide.
3. Living Faith Church International (Winners’ Chapel).
Created in 1981 by Bishop David Oyedepo, the church has grown from a bare gathering of Christians to an Olympic Colosseum religious setting. Its author, Bishop Oyedepo, is one of the richest pastors in the world.
His church theater was held in the Guinness Book of Records for being the largest church theater in the world in 2008. The church has its presence in 68 nations of the world and is littered all over Nigeria with multi-million bone edifices for branches.
4. The Apostolic Church.
No state in Nigeria you won’t see a member of this church. The church branches are present all over Nigeria.
5. Day star Christian Center.
Pastor Sam Adeyemi and his wife, Mrs. Nike Adeyemi, started this church in 1995. The first services were broadcast live on the radio before a building was put up for the church.
This is a new generation church that is now growing at a rapid rate in Nigeria. The church theater could hold up to 500 people at one time.
6. The Church of the Fountain of Life.
Pastor Taiwo Odukoya and his late wife, Pastor Mrs. Bimbo Odukoya, founded the Fountain of Life Church in 1994, making it the newest addition to Nigeria’s list of the largest churches.
The church’s theater, which seats approximately 2,000 people, is located in Ilupeju, Lagos State. It has branches in Nigeria’s popular churches as well.
7. Deeper Christian Life Ministry.
This ministry was founded in 1973 by Pastor Williams F. Kumuyi.
Deeper Life, a N4 billion theater in Gbagada, Lagos, can host many kinds of shows.
Its ultramodern underground parking garage may hold up to 200 buses and passengers.
Before this modern theater was built, Deeper’s offices were in the Olowosedo area of Ogun State.
8. Dynamic International Gospel Center.
Dr. Paul and Dr. Becky Enenche, a great man of God and his wonderful wife, launched this organization in 1996. The headquarters of the Dunamis Church are in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital. The Lord’s theater, also known as the Dunamis theater, can hold a great number of fans. It might interest you to read Meet Ademola Adewole Adegoroye; New Minister Appointed By Buhari
