Joseph Ayo Babalola – Wikipedia

He was credited with healing powers. On January 18,young Babalola was taken by his brother M. He quit school when he decided to learn a trade and became a motor mechanic apprentice. He was among the road workers who constructed the road from Igbara-Oke to Ilesa, working babbalola a steam roller driver.

Some of the Exploits of Apostle Ayodele Babalola: 1904 – 1959

Working on the Ilesa-Igbara-Oke road, suddenly the steam roller’s engine stopped to his utter amazement. There was no visible mechanical problem, and Joseph became confused and perplexed.

He was in this state of confusion when a great voice called him three times to start preaching the gospel which he refused bluntly. Enabled by the power of the Holy Spirit he could spend several weeks in prayer. It was said of him that while on a visit to a family, he was asked to pray for them briefly, but he went on to pray for three days while the family left him for work and returned meeting him still praying.


In Octoberhe was directed to go first to his home town, Odo-Owa and preach the gospel.

He was to arrive in the town on a Market day, cover his body jseph palm fronds, and disfigure himself with charcoal paints. He was baptized by Pastor J. While the leadership of His church, Faith Tabernacle were in a crucial meeting related to their doctrines, on the agenda were a list of 24 items, they were able to discuss item number one when revival broke out at Faith Tabernacle, Oke-Oye, Ilesha.

The revival began with the raising of a dead child by Joseph Ayo Babalola. Many mighty works were performed through the use of the prayer bell and the drinking of consecrated water from a stream called Omi Ayo “Stream of Joy”. From the record, within three weeks Babalola had cured about ay, 60 blind people and 50 lame persons. Wesley, Baptist, Catholic and Anglican churches including hospitals in Ilesha were left desolate as members and sick people abandoned their churches and sick beds.


All the patients in Wesley Hospital, Ilesa, abandoned their beds to seek healing from this great man of God. While he was at Odo-Owa, a warrant for his arrest was issued from Ilorin.

He was arrested for preaching against witches, a practice which had caused some trouble in Otuo in then Bendel State. He was sentenced to jail for six months in Benin City in March After serving the jail term, he went back to Efon Alaaye.

Consequently, the name changed from Faith Tabernacle to the Apostolic Church. Doctrinal differences between the two groups led to the spliting of the church, One faction of the church made Oke-Oye its base and retained the name the Apostolic Church.

The other larger faction and in which Prophet Joseph Babalola was a leader eventually became the Christ Apostolic Church.
