The revelation first came to the late Apostle Joseph A. Babalola by the Holy Spirit on October 1928 followed by a powerful revival and the establishment of Christ Apostolic Church in Ilesha, a town in Osun State, Nigeria. Since this time, the spirit of Pentecostalism/Evangelism has never been the same in Nigeria till today. Nigeria remains the International headquarters of Christ Apostolic Church.

Following the footsteps of late Apostle Joseph A. Babalola, Christ Apostolic Church New Testament was planted in 2005 by Pastor Stephen Oluwasola in Luton, Bedfordshire who had a burning desire for souls of Nigerians and other nationals In the United Kingdom.
