The Advent message came to Ika in 1978 through late Evangelist Alexander Ebunu. The first meeting was held in one Mrs. Chinukwe Justina’s house who was a textile trader. Some of the first converts were: Agnes Otoya, Francis Adaigbe, Cecilia Osama, Julius Mekwey, Late Mrs. Beatrice Achi, Late Mr. Christopher Onwebuzoie and some members of Alexander Ebunu’s family. Alexander Ebunu prepared them and took them from Agbor in Benin for baptism.  Ika district has one organized church and three companies. The membership of Ika district is 117.
