Christ Love Assembly is one of the several thousand parishes of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) worldwide. RCCG was founded in Nigeria in the year 1952. It started out as a small home group called “the Glory of God fellowship” at Willoughby street, Ebute-Metta, Lagos, Nigeria in West Africa. The name was changed to The Redeemed Christian Church of God after God revealed this to Pa Akindayomi(the founder) in a vision. It was truly amazing because at the time Pa Akindayomi could neither read nor write, but he was able to reproduce what he saw in his vision which was the current name for the church. Initially there were nine members, but before long the fellowship grew as news of the miracles that occurred in their midst spread.
Pa Akindayomi was succeeded by Pastor E.A. Adeboye in 1980, and he is the current General Overseer of RCCG worldwide. Since 1981, an open explosion began with the number of parishes growing in leaps and bounds. At the last count, there are at least 2000 parishes of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Nigeria. RCCG also has a strong presence in other African nations including C’ote D’Ivoire, Ghana, Zambia, Malawi, Zaire, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Gambia, Cameroon, and South Africa. In Europe, the church is fully established in the following countries: United Kingdom, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Germany, Greece, France.
