The Church

HISTORY OF THE CHURCH

Ancient of Ancients God Ministry International – (AAGMI) is an Evangelical, Charismatic and also a prophetic Christian Church. It was officially inaugurated as a church on 28th August 1983 in Accra, Ghana.  The first meeting was held in Adabraka Presbyterian School Park in a tent and sometimes classrooms.  Ancients started with initial membership of 23 persons. In the same year September 1983, the church acquired a land at H/No: C242 Omega Drive Street, Adabraka.

In November 1983, the membership grew from 23 to 40 people. The tent was unable to accommodate the membership that was fast growing. It was then transformed into a wooden structure.  In 2006,  the Lord Almighty paved a way and the church started putting up an auditorium which is expected to house about 700 members.
