History of Christ Apostolic Church (WOSEM)

The establishment of Christ Apostolic Church came in a revelation to the late Apostle Joseph A. Babalola by the Holy Spirit on October 1928 in a revival in Ilesha , a town in Osun state, Nigeria, West Africa .

The Christ Apostolic Church (WOSEM) of America, Inc. was founded in the United States of America in 1982 by the late Apostle (Dr.) T.O. Obadare, the world renowned Evangelist from Nigeria. worldwide.

The Georgia Avenue Branch started in 2002, when Pastor Paul Obadare, Pastor Kings Goodness, Mr. and Mrs. Olufemi Ekisola, Mr. and Mrs. Francis Ayodeji, and Matron Rosemary Akinmboni started Bible Study at Garfield Center in Washington, DC. The present pastor was an Elder at Christ Apostolic Church (WOSEM), the Mother Church in Washington, DC. Pastor Kings Goodness would invite him to come and teach Bible Study or preach on Sunday evening. It was not long that the lord spoke to Apostle (Dr.) T.O. Obadare and Pastor (Dr.) Paul Obadare to conduct a great revival at the Banneker Recreation Center near Howard University in Washington, DC in August, 2003. After the great revival as God will have it, Apostle Obadare established a church with only a few people. But with this few number of people, the church began worshiping at the rented space of Banneker Recreation Center every Sunday, and conducted Bible Study every Wednesday night at the Garfield Family Terrace Center.

After about three years at the Banneker Recreation Center, in April of 2006 we were told to move out because the center was being renovated. The pastor, Elder Solomon Akinshola, sought the face of the Lord about relocating the church to a new, bigger and better place. A short time later the Lord answered our prayer, and to God be the glory, we found a vacant building that used to be a church along Georgia Avenue NW, Washington, DC. The location is 4408 Georgia Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20011. The building is used today for God�s Ministry. Also, the church move was not without its challenges. The building needed a lot of work and the few members didn�t have the money. But after signing the lease, the Lord made a way, reminding the Pastor that He is the source, not people. New members steadily came each year, and the church continues to grow, while some left looking for well established churches.

Today, Christ Apostolic Church (WOSEM), Georgia Avenue Branch has grown, and holds its services in the building that is uniquely designed for the work of God.
