According to Igbo traditional religion, there is a supreme God called ‘Chukwu‘ (the Great Spirit), who is the creator of the whole world and everything in it. They Also believe that all things come from Chukwu, who brings the rains necessary for plants to grow and controls everything on earth and the spiritual world. Most Igbos are Christians, Although there are still other Igbos who are still tied to there traditional religion in the worship of other small gods.

Although Igbos are very religious and most of the names they give to their children start with a Chi(GOD) or Chukwu.
