There are an estimated 59 million Christians in Nigeria but few receive consistent and reliable bible teaching. Because scripture is often taken out of context and taught with little clarity, Christians in Nigeria are vulnerable to false teaching and in some areas receive a confused message that combines true Christianity with traditional African beliefs. Islam also continues to be a great threat to Christians in Nigeria.
Abuja Bible College (ABC) was established to train pastors to teach their congregations faithfully. It resources young evangelists who are passionate about God’s word but need help to proclaim the gospel accurately. The true gospel, taught clearly, will equip Nigerian Christians to hold firmly to Christ and hold out the gospel to those around them.
ABC is headed up by Ezechi Iwuagwu. Previously, Ezechi was a staff worker for the Nigeria Fellowship of Evangelical Students (NIFES). Prior to this, Ezechi studied on the Proclamation Trust’s Cornhill Training Course in London for one year (2007/8). At ABC, Ezechi hopes to provide indigenous bible training programmes, drawing from the Cornhill Training Course model, to equip church leaders and lay preachers for a lifetime of faithful gospel ministry.

‘God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah’ Psalm 46:1-3
Dear Friends – fellow sufferers and witnesses of troubling times – I wish to share with you some reflections from Psalm 46.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything that has been normal to us – our jobs, congregation worships, social outings, finances. We can’t hug our loved ones or shake hands with friends and we are unable to physically reach out in supportive embrace to dear bereaved ones. A grandma is not able to cradle her new born grandchild. Nothing is normal anymore. Isolation, quarantine, death, infection, job loss, lockdown and lock up have become our most popular words.
