New Anambra church asks people to worship known instead of unknown

Anambra stateA new church, known as ๐—ข๐—ด๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ท๐—ฒ ๐—–๐—ต๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฐ๐—ต ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—”๐—น๐—น ๐—ก๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€ is recently open in Anambra State. The clergymen of the church advise to worship what they know rather than what they donโ€™t know. The Church is new in the State and was said to be located in Nnewi, Nnewi North Local Government Area of the State, where the members reportedly had their first recently.

A video in the possession of a reporter named Izunna Okafor confirmed the addition of the new church premises. The video is currently trending on social media, showing the purported members of the Church as they rejoiced and danced to the tunes of songs compiled in praise of the Ogbanje spirit and goddesses of some popular rivers in the Nnewi area and its environs.


Earlier a clergyman addressed the congregation at the under construction church building, the clergyman presided over the church service. He advised the people to worship what they know rather than what they donโ€™t know.

The clergyman spoke in the Igbo language and mocked Bethsaida, Jericho, and other biblical locations. They made this statement in line with their view of worshipping what people know rather than what they donโ€™t know.

Many composers use these locations widely to compose songs, and they queried the people on why they usually sing and dance to songs written with such names and places when they do not know who, what, or where they are.

He, however, advised them always to sing songs composed with names of rivers that they know about and the goddesses of those rivers rather than singing and dancing to the names of what they donโ€™t know.

Together with the congregation, he mentioned some names of rivers and some river goddesses in the area, including แปคbแปฅฬ€ River, Mmiri Ele, แปคrasแป‹ฬ€ River, Mmiri Edo, แปŒfala River, แปŒta, Ezu River, among others.

While proudly identifying himself as an แปŒgbanje, the clergyman also claimed that he and other people who are also แปŒgbanje usually shine, prosper and live fine from year to year because they worship the rivers and the goddesses of the rivers they know rather than those unknown to them.


Supported by echoes of joy and commendation from the congregation, the clergyman, who did not mention his name, after that, began singing a praise song in reverence to the แปŒgbanje. At the same time, the church members cheerfully danced around in joy.
