Chrislam

Chrislam, or The Will of God Mission, The True Message of God Mission, , Oke-Tude which means The Mountain of Loosing Bondage in Yoruba or Ifeoluwa Mission (Ifeoluwa is a Yoruba word meaning "God's Love"), is a Nigerian syncretic religion which mixes elements of both Christianity and Islam.

Founded by Tela Tella in the 1970s, the sect predominantly exists in Lagos, Nigeria. Its followers recognise both the Bible and the Qur'an as holy texts, and practice "running deliverance," a distinctive practice of spiritual running which members liken to Joshua's army that took Jericho, or the Muslim practice of walking around the Ka'aba.

The religion has about 1,500 adherents.
