Apostolic Greetings

I wish to use this medium to express my profound appreciation to all Nigerians, for our sacrifices and contributions to nation building. We as a body of believers will continue to do all we can to foster peace, love and unity within our various communities.

We will also be exploring all modern intervention that will enhance worship and win souls for Christ, for He only is our cornerstone. Through it all, Christ has remained faithful. Many have predicted that life will no longer remain the same after the sad episode of a global pandemic that has hit the world in a rather shocking manner. That may seem to be a bad news, but the good news is that nations may change, situations may change but God remains the same. He will never leave us nor forsake us, so I urge us to stand on His promises and remain steadfast till the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
