The Celestial Church of Christ was founded by Samuel Joseph Bilewu Oschoffa, a former carpenter born in Dahomey ( Now the Republic of Benin) in 1909. Raised as Protestant (Methodism), he had a divine revelation on 27 May 1947, during a solar eclipse, in a forest where he was lost.

The Celestial Church of Christ is a spiritual church recognised world-wide in its unique way of worship, indivisible Holy Church, which came into the world from heaven by DIVINE ORDER through, on the 29th of September 1947 in Porto Novo, Republic of Benin, who was later called into God's glory in 1985.

The Celestial Church of Christ (CCC) was recognized and authorized by the Republic of Benin in 1965.

From the late 1990s, this church has shown its willingness to use the Internet as a privileged means of evangelisation thus allowing the many existing branches of the church within the African Diaspora (United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, France, USA)
