About Us

The Redeemed Christian Church of God is a worldwide church organization, established in 1952 as a fulfillment of God’s word through His servant, Pastor Josiah Akindayomi. We thank God that the church has expanded since then and is now overseen by the General Overseer, Pastor E.A. Adeboye.

We therefore welcome you to the Redemption Haven Parish, Oakland. This parish was founded in 2000 by Pastor Ade & Pastor (Mrs.) Grace Okonrende. The Pastor In-Charge is Pastor Ebi Thourn. As you browse through this site and fellowship with us, it is our belief that you will be richly blessed in Jesus name…Amen!

Tenets of Faith

The RCCG holds tenaciously to Divine Inspiration, Authority and the Authenticity of the Holy Scriptures.

We Preach the Gospel of Christ, His Virgin Birth, Sinless, deeds, Teaching, Atoning Death, Triumphant Resurrection, Ascension, His Mediatory work. His second coming, His millennial reign on earth. His holy judgment seat, New Heaven and New Earth, His subjecting all His enemies under His feet and His reign forever of the Trinity.

We acknowledge the unity of the Godhead and the Person of the Trinity.

We preach the depravity of human nature and therefore the necessity for salvation through repentance and regeneration and everlasting punishment of those who are impenitent.

We preach the church ordinance of water baptism by immersion only after regeneration and the Lord’s supper.

We believe in justification as God’s grace in acquitting the sinner and presenting him as one standing that has never sinned before God, and sanctification of believers through the finished work of Christ.

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Ghosts for believers by initial evidence of speaking in tongues with signs following.

We believe that the gifts of the Holy Ghost are bestowed on believers as the spirit will for edification, exhortation and comfort of the church which is the body of Christ.

We believe in divine healing of all bodily ailment through faith in the Big Sacrifice of the body and blood of Jesus Christ and obtaining it through His name only. We preach the essence of tithe and offerings in obedience to God’s command.

We preach the possibility of falling from grace through the willful sinning of a believer.

We preach the faith and reliance on God of provident to supply all needs of the believer in all spheres as he deems fit.
