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. 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, also referred to as the “redemption camp,” is situated on more than hectares of ground in Ogun State alongside the Lagos-Ibadan throughway. One million worshipers may fit in the camp alone at once, and from there, it has distributed branches across Nigeria and even outside.
2. Mountain Fire Cautions Ministry (MFM).
Mountain Of Fire Miracle Ministry (MFM), founded in 1989 by Dr. Daniel K. Olukoya, was included in our ranking of the top 10 largest churches in Nigeria. The organization, known as MFM, has branches all around the world and its own theater, named “Prayer.”
3. Winners’ Chapel of Living Faith Church International.
Bishop David Oyedepo founded the church in 1981, and it has expanded from a small congregation of Christians to a large religious complex. Bishop Oyedepo, the book’s author, is one of the richest pastors in the entire world.
His church theater was the largest church theater in the world in 2008, according to the Guinness Book of Records. The church has branches spread out across Nigeria and is present in 68 other countries around the world.
4.The Apostolic Church.
You may find a member of this church in every state of Nigeria. There are church branches all over Nigeria.
5. Daystar Christian Center.
This church was founded in 1995 by Pastor Sam Adeyemi and his wife, Mrs. Nike Adeyemi. Before the church had a facility, the first services were aired live on the radio.
In Nigeria, this new generation church is currently expanding quickly. Up to 500 people may be accommodated in the church theater at once.
6. The Fountain of Life Church.
The Fountain of Life Church was established in 1994 by Pastor Taiwo Odukoya and his late wife, Pastor Mrs. Bimbo Odukoya, making it the newest entry on Nigeria’s list of the biggest churches.
The church’s theater is situated in Ilupeju, Lagos State, and has 2,000 seats. It also has branches in the well-known churches in Nigeria.
7. Ministry of a deeper Christian life.
Founder of this organization was Pastor Williams F. Kumuyi in 1973.
A N4 billion theater in Gbagada, Lagos, called Deeper Life can hold a variety of performances.
Up to 200 buses and people might fit in the building’s ultramodern subterranean parking garage.
The Deeper offices were in the Olowosedo region of Ogun State prior to the construction of this contemporary theater.
8. The International Gospel Center of Dynamic.
This charity was founded in 1996 by Dr. Paul and Dr. Becky Enenche, a remarkable man of God and his loving wife. The Dunamis Church’s main office is in Abuja, the nation’s capital. The Dunamis theater, also known as the Lord’s theater, has a large capacity for spectators.
9. Christ Embassy.
In 1990, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome established Christ Embassy as a megachurch and Christian denomination, also known as Religionists’ LoveWorld Incorporated Christ Embassy. Since then, it has grown into a global network of churches with millions of members and congregations in numerous nations. It has more than a thousand members at its headquarters in Lagos State.
