OUR HISTORY

Christ Baptist Church Gbagada (CBCG) started as a Preaching Station of First Baptist Church, Broad Street Lagos, in the House of Late Dn. Abioye Oyelowo, Plot 279A, Gbagada – Oworonsoki Expressway.

The Church congregated at this location for Sunday Worships, Mid-Week Services and Discipleship for a period of about four years before moving its Sunday Services to Nigeria Opportunity Industrial Centre (NOIC), a vocational training centre, along Gbagada – Expressway for 11 years (July 1986 – July 1997). CBCG was fully organized on 30th of March 1991. Since its establishment the church has been blessed with the services of two Pastors – Pastor Ayo Gbode who is the current Pastor of the Church and Pastor Israel Akanji who served in the Church for about twelve years. (July 8, 1987 – August 14, 1999).

Worship services are experiential and as directed by the Holy Spirit. CBCG has since inception been home to foreign nationals across the globe particularly, Indian nationals.
