Welcome to the Rhema Christian Church, North America. RCCNA is a place to be, large enough to celebrate, small enough to care. It is a place of covenant security, peace and prosperity. Rhema is a prophetic place of divine rest where nobody is permitted to fail. It is a great commission where everybody is somebody and Jesus Christ is Lord of all. Fellowship with us every Sunday at 9AM in any of our locations, Reno Nevada or in Houston Texas.

The church has an appeal to all types of people worldwide, with a determination to teach people in their various geographical areas, stages of secular life and levels of spiritual development. Rhema Christian Ministries is not a set-up of man, but of God and mandated to preach the full Message of Triumph: over sin, poverty, oppression, satan, fear, sorrow and death. We are a Great Commission Church poised to raise men of integrity, fully equipped, disciplined and battle ready for end-time harvest of souls into God’s Kingdom.

The church was founded in 1991 by the Presiding Bishop of the church, Bishop (Dr.)  Taiwo Akinola, and since then, the church has grown worldwide. For close to two decades, this world-wide ministry has affected thousands of souls across the globe. Presently, there are established missions in Nigeria, South Africa, Japan and in the United States

Rhema has also been involved in establishing schools, child care and support centers.   It has been our privilege and honor to spread the good-news of the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ round the world since the inauguration of this ministry on the 2nd of November, 1991. This we have done with outstanding results through preaching and teaching of the Word of God.


To love and glorify God passionately and, by the help of the Holy Spirit, to enthrone Jesus Christ in the hearts of very many people the world over.


To raise and nurture glorious assemblies of Jesus’ People through preaching and teaching of the triumphant Word in all nations, to all classes of people and in all generations.


To remain in fervent obedience to our mission mandate until the glorious gospel is fully preached and all peoples and families on earth are touched for Jesus Christ the Lord.


As a people of power, purity and purpose and in an assembly where everybody is somebody and Jesus Christ being LORD of all, we have resolved to make :-

  • Commitment to the Lord our waking thought,
  • Righteousness and love for one another our  walking passion,
  • Spiritual authority our daily exercise and
  • Excellence in all things; the color of our ministry.
