Its founding fathers, who arrived Wase town in Plateau State, Nigeria on the 8th October, 1904 were: Dr. Willem Herman Karl Kumm, Dr. Ambrose H. Bateman, Mr. John Burt and Mr. John Lowry Maxwell.

The Headquarters of COCIN is situated at Jos, Nigeria and COCIN strongly believes in the infallibility of the Bible and in God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

Vision

COCIN envisions a Church in which the leadership and membership are maturing in Christ by obeying the word of God, living holy lives, united and committed to worshipping God and spreading the holistic gospel thereby impacting the world as salt and light of the world of her time to the glory of God till the return of Jesus Christ.

Mission Statement

To glorify God and not any person or material; to edify and equip believers to preach the good news of holistic salvation in Jesus Christ to unbelievers. Thus COCIN shall continue to administer the sacraments and be self-propagating, self-supporting and self-governing.
