50 years ago, on May 28, 1967, 27 people (20 children and 7 adults) gathered together to worship the Almighty God, the King of all creation, in a borrowed classroom under the leadership of Pa Deacon Joseph Ayodele Sholeye and a Church Ikoyi Baptist Church was founded.
The vision to cater for the non- Yoruba speaking residents of Ikoyi met with God’s approval and now we are celebrating the Golden Jubilee of the family of God today. |
Whatever IBC may have become today, all glory and adoration must be to the Most High God who was with the pioneer worshipers and has sustained His Church till today.
Philipians 1:6 says “being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ”. Again, it is written in 1 Corinthians 2:9 – “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” So shall it be for Ikoyi Baptist Church IBC in the next 50 years, if the Lord tarries. Amen.
HAPPY GOLDEN JUBILEE, IKOYI BAPTIST CHURCH
