The Lutheran primary school, then at Mbiabong Ikono, was headed and managed by a white man known as Mr. Johnson, who wanted to limit the school at standard three (3) and to continue from standard four (4) to five (5) at Ediene Ikot Obioimo, the Neighboring village. Dissatisfied with this idea, the then Village Head Chief Udoaka Udoidiong and other Elders of the village appealed to Bro. Smith Akpan Ekpo in Company with late Udo Adiaha Idianga of Ukpom Abak who was a member of the New Church (The Church of Christ) at Ikot Usen to lead some Village Elders to Ikot Usen to bring the Church to plant at Mbiabong, because it accepted the primary school at Mbaibong to reach standard five (5)
In 1954, a Missionary by name Palma, a white man was sent by the Church of Christ, Ikot Usen to the Village to manage the school. Here, the missionary with the consent of the leaders of the village changed the name of the school from Lutheran school to Christian Primary school, mbiaobong Ikono and also preached the Gospel to members of the ten Lutheran church and converted them to members of the church of Christ.
Palma Shepherded the church for many years and trained people such as Bro. Ime Udoaka, Bro. Okon Samuel (all late) and others as teachers, preachers and interpreters of the Gospel. Among the pioneer members were the Chief Udoaka Udo Idiong, Chief Willie Udoaka, Bro Efanga Ekanem, Bro. Noah Udo Etukadiaha, Bro. hennery Ukpoho, and Bro. Bill Uyo all of blessed memory.
The first engaged pulpit preacher was Late Bro. E.E. Ikpidung. Other preachers include late E. N. Okon, S.S Esang, Late Etim Brown Udo and E.D. Udo. After Bro. E.D. Udo, there was no substantive Preacher; and church was tended by late KA.D. Ekwere and Bro. E.W. Utin. In 1984, Bro. E.W. Utin proceeded to the school of preaching at Nigerian Christian Bible College, Ukpom Abak and thereafter was appointed a full time pulpit minister by the church in 1986.
