We celebrated 50years of 1930 revival in 1980, not anniversary of CAC- Pastor Akinosun

By 'Gbenga Bankole

The President of Christ Apostolic Church Worldwide, Pastor Abraham O. Akinosun has revealed that the church celebrated 50years of the mighty moved of God during 1930 revival in 1980, not the golden jubilee of existence of the church as some people thought.

Pastor Akinosun revealed this recently in an interview with CAC NEWS and Punch Newspaper.

He explained that; "the leadership of this church erred greatly in 1980 when they celebrated golden jubilee (50 years). They did not count from 1918. They started from 1930. The church started in 1918 but it was not called CAC. It became CAC in 1930 after the great revival. It was first named United Apostolic Church and later Nigeria Apostolic Church. The Holy Spirit forbade it so the name changed to African Apostolic Church. Then the Holy Spirit let them know that the plan is to establish a global church. After some elders prayed, Apostle Babalola said it was revealed to him in writing that the church should be called CAC. It was registered in 1943."

While answering question on the major achievement of the church since the last 100 years, the cleric said; "at the inception, they called us illiterates. When we were making plans to establish a university, one of the questions we were asked was that how many schools (primary and secondary) have we established. They were surprised to know that we had many of them. Many of our elders ensured schools were established in localities where we have churches. We have over 50 members who are professors. They were the ones that worked out the modalities of how to establish the university."

"In Africa, we have churches all over. In fact, our centenary celebration began in The Gambia where we have 12 churches. In the first week in November, we are going to celebrate in South Africa where we have nine churches. Beyond Africa, we have 86 assemblies and in the US, Italy, Canada, Germany, we also have churches. In Pennsylvania, US we have the CAC village beside Camp David built on 63 acres of land. We were there this year for conferences. The facility is so massive that all conferences were held at the same time in different halls within the camp."
