The Church came into existence in 1904 through missionary efforts of the Sudan United Mission (SUM) —British Branch. From 1920 to 1993 Johanna Veenstra, a Christian Reformed woman, worked for the church. Her witness had a deep impact on the life of the church. She was joined by other missionaries of the Christian Reformed Church, and in 1940 the Christian Reformed Church made an official com-mitment to this activity by joining the SUM as the CRC branch. Nigerian converts, such as Timon Mamma Irmiya, Filibus Ashu Angyu, Simon Atajiri, and others, made an important contribution to the evangelistic work. In 1951 the church was officially established. It is today rooted in Gongola State, and in parts of Benue State and Borno State, but it has also spread to the Federal Capital Territory.
