About us

Mercy Christian Centre Lagos was a child born in due time under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and obedience to the faith.

Pastor Funsho James, the founding pastor of BLF ADO- Ekiti and Mercy Christian Centre, Lagos was preparing for GNET CAMP MEETING 2004, where he preached a message titled 'Everlasting Gospel'. The message had a great impact on him coupled with his desire to create a platform where he could continue to bless lives of both men everywhere along with the alumni members of the fellowship he started on campus.

It all began as a house fellowship at No. 19 Odewale Street, Alausa Ikeja, Lagos, a rented flat, where he preached every Sunday morning, the gospel of God’s grace. In attendance at the first meeting were John Audu and Pastor Tunde Ajibola. Joining a few weeks later were Pastor Eno Esienumoh, Taiye Amura and Rotimi Ologun. They met like this for a year until persecution arose from the landlord, who served them a quit notice because he was against the use of the house for church fellowship. However, as a search was initiated for another place of worship, a temporary move was made to Mardel Cafe: Pastor James’s brother’s café at Ogba, managed by Rotimi Ologun and Taiye Amura.

In January 2006, still meeting at the Cafe, a decision was reached for the fellowship to run as a full-fledged church. Pastor Eno Esienumoh, who was assisting Pastor James administratively at the time, was appointed as resident pastor. Mercy Assembly Lagos was chosen as the name of the church, after Mercy Assembly Ilorin which is headed by Rev. Ade Adebayo. Ever since, the church has been growing in leaps and bounds, blessing lives, both individuals and families collectively in various ways. Impacting lives by the word of faith and uncountable miracles, signs and wonder by the Holy Ghost through men and women of substance and great commitment to God and His work..
