The Early Church and Nigerian Christian Church in the Post Modern Era: An Evaluation

Ikechi Chidi Ekpendu


The church in the New Testament, the early church as it is called in Acts of the Apostles had so much positive dominant influence and impact in the lives of the people which reflected in their morals, interactions, behavior, and lifestyle. This influence, however, is either declining or is no longer seen or felt or has lost its focus in this era in Africa particularly Nigeria. This study sought to evaluate the state of the church in the post modern era to examine if the Nigerian Christian Church in the Post Modern Era has lost its influence or relevance. Qualitative and descriptive research methods were used in this work. The paper discovered that the Nigerian Christian Church in this Era has declined in her influence in the society. This decline has given rise to proliferation of churches, deviation from biblical truth, quest for money, power, popularity and politicking.

Keywords: Early Church, Africa, Christian, Post Modern.
