Christian worship is not for enjoyment. It is for the glory of God. Worship is not about us. It is about God and for God. - Rueben Chuga
In this month of independence, you will not spend your life in captivity. All who want to hinder your song of victory at the end of the year shall fail and be put to shame in Jesus' name. Happy Independence.
Rev Dr Supo Ayokunle, NBC CEO & President
The Nigerian Baptist Convention, which Thomas Jefferson Bowen started in 1850, has grown into over 10,000 Churches with about 3,000,000 baptized members and up to 6.5 million worshipping members spread across the nation.
This denominational entity has metamorphosed into thirty-one Conferences (ecclesiastical regions) in Nigeria alone.
The work has spread to several other African nations including Republic of Benin, Cote D’Ivoire, Mali, Sierra Leone, Mozambique, Chad, Niger, Burkina Faso and South Sudan. The United Kingdom and the United States of America are also experiencing the influence of its growth and expansion.
