The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has dedicated a new church building in Abuja, named ‘Jesus House’, in a ceremony presided over by the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
The dedication ceremony, which took place on Saturday, was a grand affair attended by thousands of RCCG members and dignitaries from across the country.
The newly completed church building, located in the Durumi area of Abuja, is a magnificent 5-story facility that can accommodate up to 3,000 worshippers at once.
Speaking at the dedication ceremony, the Pastor-in-Charge of the ‘Jesus House’ parish in Abuja, Major-Gen. Pat Akem-Vingir (rtd), highlighted the importance of the church in Nigeria’s social and economic fabric.
“If you remove the church from Nigeria, the country will collapse. People may deny it, but I am saying it unapologetically.
“If the church were not in Nigeria doing what it is doing; serving as the light of the world and as the salt of the earth, the degradation would have been more than we can imagine.
“70% of the country is youthful. You can’t allow that kind of generation to be wasted. The church is a place where they can find hope, direction, and purpose,” he said.
