This paper is a report of a study conducted in Benue State—Nigeria among members of a Reformed church (NKST) and those of a Pentecostal church (Living Faith). The purpose of the study was to investigate the imaging of Christ in that region with special reference to prosperity gospel. Furthermore, how popular is this view?
