What is CAN?
Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) is the umbrella body of all Christians in Nigeria. The Association was established in August 1976 to foster unity and oneness amongst the various Christian groups in the Nation.
CAN is structured along five Church groups as follows:
In addition to fostering unity in the Church, CAN is also saddled with the responsibility of promoting and protecting the Nigerian Church and the Christians. CAN is the official organ of the Church on all issues that affect Christendom.
Who Is A Member Of CAN?
Every Christian assembly in Nigeria, established upon sound scriptural doctrine, and each individual Christian is a member of CAN.
There is no exception...
Building The Body
To enable it fulfill its multifaceted roles, it has been realized that the Association of Christians should be sufficiently funded. The various challenges confronting Christianity and individual Christians in Nigeria make it imperative that CAN has to be financially independent.
In realization of this need, the National Executive Committee (NEC) of CAN, the highest decision making organ in the Association, approved the establishment of the CAN TRUST FUND.
Amongst the pressing needs identified in the Body of Christ in Nigeria are:
Rebuilding critical Christian infrastructure willfully destroyed by the enemies of Jesus Christ.
Responding to the needs of Christian victims of religious insurgency.
Mobilizing effective media campaign both locally and internationally to tell the story of the persecution of Christians in Nigeria.
Funding the Secretariat of CAN for greater effectiveness.
Promoting and protecting the rights of Christians in Nigeria.
Mobilizing 24/7 prayer cover for Nigeria
Building critical institutions and structures that will strengthen Christianity in Nigeria/
Setting the pace in Christian welfare and intervention.
Operating under the slogan I C.A.N. SUPPORT, the CAN Trust Fund aims to encourage every Nigerian Christian to contribute a token sum of N500 monthly to the Christian Association of Nigeria. Individual Christians are at liberty to contribute more, or less. The crucial issue is that each Christian should be able to participate, irrespective of how low the contribution may be.
All Christians are under obligation to ensure the survival of Christianity in Nigeria, not only in the interest of the present generation, but in the interest of generations yet unborn.
The donation has been designed in such a manner that it would not affect commitments of Believers to their denominations and local assemblies.
Christians are at liberty to contribute according to individual ability. While the standard contribution is N500, a monthly donation of N100 is not too little.
