Based on request, we seek to clarify as follows:

Christian Social Movement of Nigeria (CSMN) is the SOCIO-POLITICAL arm of the Nigerian Church. It was established and registered at CAC in September 2001 by the FIVE CHURCH GROUPS of the Nigerian Church to coordinate and manage the interest of Christianity on Social and Political issues in the country. It was inaugurated by Prelate Sunday Mbang as the CAN President, ably represented by the then Vice President of CAN, Cardinal Onaiyekan.

The Preamble of the Constitution of CSMN states inter alia, “…Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) with one of its main objectives – “that they may be one” has encouraged and approved the formation of the Christian Social Movement of Nigeria …”

CSMN is the authorized Christian body to speak for the Nigerian Church on politics and social issues. Please refer to the Constitution and Declaration of Policies of CSMN at http://csmnigeria.org/csmn/constitution

MOTTO

Thy Kingdom Come

Government Upon His Shoulder

MEMBERSHIP

In principle, each Nigerian Christian is a member of CSMN. However, participation is at each individual’s discretion.

Holding offices in CSMN is opened to both Laity and Clergy. Christian professionals are welcome to participate in CSMN in order to apply their skills to build the kingdom of God in Nigeria.

AREAS OF PARTICIPATION

POLITICS & GOVERNANCE: Christians with flair for politics and calling for Governance are invited to participate in CSMN in order to mobilize and organize Christians for effective participation in providing Godly leadership for Nigeria.

LEGAL: Christians in the legal profession are welcome to participate in view of the ideological conflicts plaguing Nigeria. These issues require legal resolution.

DATA & RECORDS: Christians with flair or skill in data gathering as well as keeping records are required to monitor and records current events. If care is not taken, in a few years from now, some people would deny that religious insurgency ever took place in Nigeria.

MEDIA: To prevent distortion of narrative as well as ensure that factual information is disseminated, Christians in the media are invited to participate in CSMN.

HUMANITARIAN SERVICES: Christians with passion for persecuted and vulnerable Christians are required to coordinate reaching out to needy Christians. This area requires a lot of attention in view of the overwhelming number of Christians in the IDP camps.

YOUTHS: For Christianity to survive, the next generation must be raised to be grounded in the faith. CSMN is particular about reaching Christian youths and mobilizing them into true disciples as well as making them politically literate. Christian professionals with calling to reach youths are invited to participate in CSMN.

EMPOWERMENT: CSMN supports a well articulated program of empowering Christians to be self sufficient. It is written, “… study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.” 1 Thes. 4: 11 & 12

Christian professionals are invited to participate and offer their expertise, as God has given each individual grace, to build the kingdom of God in Nigeria. Government shall be upon His shoulder.

FUNDING

According to the Declaration of Policies of CSMN, ( http://csmnigeria.org/csmn/declaration-of-policies ) individual Christians are expected to contribute N500 monthly to the Christian Movement for its activities. As outlined above, funding would be critical to the achievement of the goal and objectives of CSMN.

      “THE FAITHFUL 7,000 IN ISRAEL: WHERE ARE THEY?”

      Bosun Emmanuel

      19th June, 2020

      If there is one account in the Bible that Nigerian Christians relish and gleefully share, it is the story of Elijah in the Presence of God at Mount Horeb. In that encounter, Elijah lamented before God that he was the only one left of the prophets in Israel and God had to correct him that He still had 7,000 faithful men who refused to bow the knees to Baal. It was clear that God was very proud of them. These were the remnants in the land. Every country has them. Nigerian Christians are proud of them.

    • WHO IS ON THE LORD’S SIDE?

       

      14th June, 2020

      In Exodus 32: 25 – 26, we read, “And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:) Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD'S side?”

      In delivering this message, I know that I am facing the possibility of being misunderstood, due to the penchant of some of our brethren who interpret every correction and calling to order of Christians as condemnation. This is not a condemnation of Nigerian Church or Christians but an evaluation of both the spiritual and moral state of the Nigerian Church. No one can deny that things have gone wrong in a country that has the largest Church in Africa. The presence of darkness is simply the absence of light. Why isn’t the light shining?

    • DATA ON MURDER OF CHRISTIANS IN NIGERIA

       

      JANUARY TO JUNE, 2020

      In 122 events from January 1 to June 7, 2020, seven hundred and ninety (790) had been viciously killed and another three hundred and thirty-six (336) wounded.  Apart from a case like the attack by Ansaru terrorists ambushing an Emir’s convoy (and killing at least 30 people) on January 14, virtually all the victims were Christians. And 100% of the killers were Muslim Jihadists (either Boko Haram/Ansaru or Fulani herdsmen/Miyetti Allah).

    • NIGERIA: UNFOLDING GENOCIDE? New APPG report launched

       

      Latest News

      June 15, 2020

      The All-Party Parliamentary Group for International Freedom of Religion or Belief has launched a new report in Westminster today entitled Nigeria – Unfolding Genocide?

      The report launch featured speeches from the Chair of the APPG, Jim Shannon MP, Co-Chair Baroness Cox, and Rebecca Sharibu, the mother of Leah Sharibu who was kidnapped by Boko Haram two years ago and has yet to be released.

      BACKGROUND

      APPG members have been alarmed by the dramatic and escalating violence in and escalating violence in Nigeria characterised as the farmer-herder conflict. This violence has manifested along ideological lines, as the herders are predominantly ethnic Fulani Muslims and the farmers are predominantly Christians. There has been significant debate about what factors are driving and exacerbating this crisis. Therefore the APPG launched a parliamentary inquiry to help develop a nuanced understanding of the drivers of violence and increase parliamentary, public and Governmental interest in the issue. The report is the result of that inquiry.
