WHO WE ARE

ABOUT OUR CHURCH


BRIEF HISTORY OF ABUNDANT LIFE

Abundant Life Gospel Church started on 23rd of August 1984 at Bishop Smith Primary School, Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria. The visionary, BISHOP KOLA GIDEON ONAOLAPO, a graduate of Chemistry at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, had a visitation by God first in 1983. When he was fasting and waiting on the Lord. Jesus walked into his room, touched his palms and he experienced something like an electric shock and a voice said

“Go into the whole world and preach the Gospel”. (Confirmed in Mark 16:15)

In 1984, the Church started at Ilorin and in October 1991 a new work began in Lagos, which had received the blessings of God and has its World Headquarters in the PEACE CENTRE, 69 Iju Road, Agege, Lagos on 8.3 Acres of Land. The Church has presence in many states of Nigeria through the concerted effort of members who relocated to other states and established branches of the Church. We have for instance Churches in Ibadan, Jebba, Lokoja (2 Churches), Ibafo, Ilorin, (5 Churches), Abuja. As at Year 2018, we have 14 branches; including Ogun State, Benin, Liberia and U.S.A.
