GTBCI History


Church calendar of upcoming programs, to enable you plan your attendance.


Good Tidings Bible Church International (GTBCI) is a divinely assigned vision given by God to His son and servant Pastor Dayo Olutayo. This vision kicked off on Thursday, 4th November, 2004 in a rented church auditorium at Area 1 in Abuja, Nigeria with an outstanding 600+ people in attendance during the very first service.

In realization of this divine calling, Pastor Dayo Olutayo and his wife Pastor Bolu Olutayo have not wavered since the existence of the church to provide sterling leadership to the members of the church. Indeed, everyone that has identified with the ministry has quality testimonies with evidences that God is at work in GTBCI. There is particular prayer for every first timer that “you will never leave Abuja with your head bowed down in shame”. This has also been extended to mean that you will never live in Abuja with your head bowed down in shame.

The humility and good disposition of Pastors Dayo and Bolu Olutayo have endeared them to many as every service of the church is always remarkable with testimonies to show. Church activities have till date maintained a heightening tempo which resounds throughout the city of Abuja and beyond. Programmes that are soul enriching and empowering to members have been introduced over the years. These include those hosted by the Happy Women, a forum that is dedicated to the spiritual upliftment of the women folk, the Children of Promise (COP) that is meant for those who are seeking for the fruit of the womb, the Youth Ministry and the Men’s Fellowship.

Good Tidings Bible Church International has grown over the years to the establishment of a magnificent church edifice located in Utako, Abuja which is known as Kingdom Centre. The educational arm of the ministry called Lifegate Academy and LifeGate International College have been established in Abuja and Ilorin respectively with provision for nursery, primary and secondary studies. Mighty Warriors’ Bible College (MWBC) which is the bible school arm of the church has also been established with trainings for ministers of God, bible courses for spiritual development and vocational studies.
