The FoundationThe Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) was founded by Pa Josiah Akindayomi, a native of Ondo State in the Western part of Nigeria. He was born in 1909. He grew up as an idol worshipper but he later converted to Christianity out of a yearning to know “The God who created the earth and everyone on it”. He was baptized in 1927 by the Church Missionary Society (CMS). He joined the Cherubim and Seraphim (C&S) church in 1931 because he was not fulfilled as a Christian in the Anglican Church. He left the Cherubim and Seraphim (C&S) church in 1952 and started a house fellowship called, the Glory of God Fellowship at Willoughby Street, Ebute-Metta, Lagos. Pa Akindayomi, who was an illiterate, one day proclaimed that he got a revelation from God about the renaming of the fellowship to” the Redeemed Christian Church of God”, which is now a household name in many countries. Thus in 1952, the Redeemed Christian Church of God was born. Some of the promises of the Lord to the RCCG are as follows:
· That He will meet this Church on His return;
· That this Church will become a model to the whole world;
· Those other Churches from all over the world would come to learn and worship in this Church.Sometime in the early 70s, Pa Akindayomi claimed that God had spoken to him about his successor. He claimed that The Lord told him that this man, who was not a member of the church then, would be a young educated 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 Adejare Adeboye 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 sermons from Yoruba to English. He was ordained a pastor of the church in 1975. As Papa was preparing to meet his Creator, he sent for Pastor Adeboye and spent several hours sharing with him details of the covenant and the plans of the Lord for the church. Even though a year before this, the Lord had revealed to Pastor Adeboye that he would be Papa’s successor, it was still too difficult for him to fully contemplate such an awesomee responsibility. Pa Josiah Akindayomi was 71 years old when he died. Amidst controversy, Pastor Adeboye’s appointment 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. One of the well-known programs of the church is the Holy Ghost Service, an all-night miracle service that holds on the first Friday of every month at the Redemption Camp at KM. 46, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. The Holy Ghost Service also holds in other parts of the world. The Holy Ghost Congress holds in the second week of December every year at the Redemption Camp. Memorably, Day Star Sanctuary along with other RCCG parishes within the family, was pivotal in facilitating the first ever Holy Ghost Service in Ghana in 2007. He was also central in the organization of the Special Holy Ghost Service “Let the wind blow” held at Ohene Djan Stadium in March 2011 under the auspice of the Ghana Pentecostal Council with the presence of Arch-bishop Duncan Williams, Dr. Mensah Otabil, Bishop Charles Agyin-Asare, Bishop N.A. Tackie-Yarboi, Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, Dr. Robert Ampiah Kwofi, Rev. Titi Ofei, Rev. Eric Kwapong, Apostle Samuel Antwi, Rev. (Dr.) Gideon Kisseh among others .
