Christ Holy Church
International

The Story of an African Independent Church

Thomas Oduro

The author explores and examines the history, beliefs, practices, and growth of Christ Holy Church International, an African Independent Church in Nigeria, founded by Agnes Okoh, an illiterate woman who, while returning from a market in 1943, heard a voice repeatedly saying “Matthew Ten.” Agnes Okoh, a marginalized woman and a widow, was able to found and lead an itinerant evangelistic team of 12 members in 1947 as the movement grew into a church with nearly 800 congregations by 2002. The history of that church in a pluralistic, multi-cultural and multi-linguistic Nigeria is the focus of this book
