There are an estimated 59 million Nigerian Christians today. However few consistently receive reliable bible teaching. The Bible is often taken out of context and taught with little clarity. Christians in Nigeria are therefore vulnerable to attack from false teaching, and in some areas a confused message that combines true Christianity with traditional African beliefs. Islam also continues to be a great threat to Christians in Nigeria.
Abuja Bible College (ABC) was established to train pastors to teach their congregations faithfully. It resources young evangelists who are passionate about God’s word, but need help to proclaim the gospel accurately. The true gospel 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. Before starting this role, Ezechi was a staff worker for the Nigeria Fellowship of Evangelical Students (NIFES), since 1996. Here he was actively involved in discipling, bible teaching and preaching. Prior to this, Ezechi studied on the Proclamation Trust’s Cornhill Training Course in London for a year (2007/8). At ABC, Ezechi hopes to provide indigenous bible training programmes drawing from the Cornhill Training Course model. This will equip church leaders and lay preachers for a lifetime of faithful gospel ministry.
The college is relocating to Kagoro and will be known as "ABC in Kagoro".
