The church began several years ago as a small congregation but has rapidly grown now. The original church was situated on the edge of the tropical forest and swamp area on the outskirts of Lagos. This area is now a base for prayer and meditation by T. B. Joshua. Visitors to the Synagogue church are usually taken out to this remote swamp area for a visit. We saw crocodiles here but do you know there are no mosquitos whatsoever - this place is too holy for them!!
