Chrislam

Chrislam, or the The Will of God Mission or Ifeoluwa Mission (Ifeoluwa is a Yoruba word meaning "the will of God") is a Nigerian syncretic religion which mixes elements of both Christianity and Islam. It was founded two decades ago in Lagos, Nigeria by Tela Tella (also known as Holy Royal Highness, Holy Messiah, The Messenger, or Ifeoluwa, the Will of God). The sect recognizes both the Bible and the Qur'an as holy texts. Its members practice "running deliverance," a distinctive practice of spiritual running which members liken to Joshua's army at Jericho, or the Muslim practice of circumabulating the Ka'aba.
