A Missiological History of Christian Association of Nigeria

Francis Kehinde Adebayo


Christianity in Nigeria has a rich history; each denomination savors its beginning and peculiarity. Christianity entered Nigeria as a foreign religion, from the South, and Islam from the North. This pattern has defined the territories, leaving the middle belt as a zone of contest.  This article is particularly on how the churches have attempted to form a collective mission front in the beginning, what happened to this effort and why it failed in some instances. The paper includes the development of the ecumenical bodies in Nigeria with indigenous churches.  Christian Association of Nigeria receives special attention in the light of its prominence and influence.

Key words: ecumenism, history, mission, missiology, churches, African, Nigeria,development.
