The AACC is the largest association of Protestant, Orthodox and Indigenous churches in Africa.

Celica Church of Christ was established through the injunction of the Holy Spirit on November 15, 1992, at Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria and was announced to the world via a press conference on that day. In extra research on the name of the church, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), London programme on Africa made the world understand that the word CELICA has its origin in Hebrew, Latin and Greek languages.
From Latin, it means heavenly or Celestial. The name of the church translated spiritually is the Most Glorious Church of Christ from Heaven. The founder of the church is His Holiness, the Anointed Prophet, Reverend (Dr) Emmanuel Adetunji Adeonigbagbe.
The International Headquarters of the church is located at Kilometre 7, New Ife Road, Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. The church has branches in Nigeria and presence in the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States of America, Cote d’Ivoire and South Africa.
The church can be distinguished by its chant of Hosanna and the mode of dressing, a white garment with a blue cross on the left-hand side of the garment. The logo of the church is an eye, a cross and Bible. The church believes in the efficacy of prayers and guidance by the Holy Spirit in all its programmes.
