About Us

Welcome To United Evangelical Church, Surulere

Nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us that is in Jesus Christ our Lord.

God comes to us in free and undeserved favour in the person of Jesus Christ who lived, died, and rose for us that we might belong to God and serve Christ in the world.

United Evangelical Church (Founded as Qua Iboe Church), UEC Surulere is a Jesus-loving gathering of believers who are committed to pursuing God through worship, the life-changing study of the Bible and a lifestyle that conforms to what pleases Him.

If you are looking for a place where Jesus is preached every week, where you will be challenged to grow into Him daily, and where your soul will find mercy and nourishment through God’s Word, then this is the place for you.

You’re welcome! We want to give you every opportunity to see that God loves you and has a plan for your life. It’s our desire that you know God personally, and we would love to help you develop that relationship …one step at a time. Join us.

United Evangelical Church exists to glorify God and reach the unreached for Christ through evangelism and missions, equipping and empowering the saints, and social action for the benefit of humankind.
A purposeful bible based church, united in worship and service to God and humanity holistically towards the rapture
Some 75 years after Rev. Samuel Bill had set up the Qua Iboe Mission in Ibeno, the Church's evangelical activities finally arrived Lagos, the then Federal Capital.

Four laymen exploited in the presence of Rev. Matthew Udoffa (now deceased), a pastor of Qua Iboe Church, Ibesit, who was holidaying with his brother, Sampson (also now deceased) to inaugurate the Lagos branch of the church at Toyin Bar and Gardens, Matthew Street, Surulere in June 1962. Attendance at the inaugural service was 9, made up of the four laymen and their families and the pastor. The general collection on that day was one shilling and six pence.

Toyin Bar and Gardens, by virtue of its central location, provided recreation and entertainment to the public, seven days a week. The casualties in the number of broken bottles and the chicken parts had to be cleared on Sunday mornings before normal worship service could commence.

The church expanded rapidly and its membership was a mixed grill of people of protestant background and ethnic groups of mainly Ibibio, Annang and Igbo. Soon afterwards, accommodation became a major problem. The church succeeded in getting a larger accommodation at Jehovah Jireh African School, Mosalashi, Surulere. They also identified three plots of land along Western Avenue (now Funsho Williams Avenue). Baptism used to take place at a stream in Shomolu. Officials of the Christian Association of Nigeria ministered the sacraments. The first Qua Iboe Church Pastor sent by the Church Conference to minister the Holy Communion was Rev. C. A. Umobong of blessed memory.

Today the Church has increased greatly both in membership and status.
