About Our Church

First Baptist Church Ibadan, Idikan Street, Ibadan was established on August 27, 1906. The eleven foundation members held their first worship service in the house of Pa. E.P. Adebiyi at Idikan Street, Ibadan under the leadership of Mr. Daniel Adenrele Obasa, who was sent by First Baptist Church, 24A Broad Street, Lagos who played the role of the Mother during the formative period of the Church. Mr. Obasa made serious efforts to secure adequate land on which the First Church building stood. The Pastorium was also constructed as well as a Day School. Mr. Obasa died in the Lord in 1945.

In the year 1914, an organization which was named Yoruba Baptist Association was formed in First Baptist Church Ibadan, Idikan Street, Ibadan. When other tribes began to join the organization, the name of the organization was then changed from Yoruba Baptist Association to Nigerian Baptist Convention which we have today.

In 2006, the Centenary building was constructed in the Church premises, to celebrate 100 years of the Church's existence.

The Church which started with 11 pioneer members in 1906 now has over 2000 members and about 5 mission Churches.. Glory to God for bringing us thus far!
