The Redeemed Christian Church of God (R.C.C.G.) started in 1952 through the vision God gave to the late founder, PA Josiah o. Akindayomi
When he passed away on to glory in 1980, the mantle of leadership fell on the present General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye in March 1981.
The Lord made 3 wonderful promises to the mission:
- That he would meet the church on his return.
- That the church will be a model for other churches.
- That other churches would come and learn to worship God at RCCG.
Based on these promises, we have the following goals:
- To make heaven
- To take as many people as possible to heaven
- To plant churches within 30 mins during distances in every city and town of developed countries.
- In order to accomplish our goals, holiness will be our life style
- We will pursue these objectives until every nation in the world is reached for Jesus Christ
The mount Zion parish started In April of 1999 from the then RCCG Atlanta Central parish under the leadership of Pastor Johnson adefila. Pastor Anthony Odugunwa and Deacon Ayeni were given the mandate of planting a parish at Riverdale/College park area.
At that time, the parish found her first abode in a hotel in college park before the lord relocated the parish to queuetek plaza Riverdale, through Pastor Wale Adeleye who was the new pastor briefly when the church was barely 6months. Its was from these point that the good lord brought us to the present place called REHOBOTH.
