Abuja Bible College (ABC) was set up to train Nigerian pastors to teach their congregations faithfully. It serves young evangelists who are passionate about God’s word but need help to proclaim the gospel accurately.
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, Nigerian Christians are vulnerable to false teaching and a message that combines true Christianity with traditional African beliefs. But the true gospel, when 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 and studied on the Cornhill Training Course in London. Drawing from the Cornhill model, ABC equips church leaders and lay preachers for faithful gospel ministry in their own culture and context.
Though originally based in Abuja, ABC relocated to Kagoro in 2015.
‘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.
