Who we are
On Friday September 29, 1947, a carpenter named Samuel Bilewu Oschoffa received a message from the Almighty God as follows -
"It is the wish of God to send you on an errand of preaching to the world, spreading good tidings to the meek, binding up the broken hearted, proclaiming liberty to the captives, opening of the prisons to them that are bound, comforting all that mourn, providing charity to all those in need and assisting people that are facing spiritual problems and difficulties with prayer and granting them deliverance in the name of Jesus "
In carrying out this mission, the Celestial Church of Christ was established in Porto Novo in West Africa and has since spread to many countries in the world.
In furtherance of the mission of the Celestial Church of Christ, the Christ Gospel Parish was established in 2004 by the Shepherd, Evangelist Samuel Bamidele Famakinwa in obedience to the divine call by God.
Our Mission is as follows.
1. To worship God Almighty in holiness and reverence.
2. To declare the good news of the salvific work of Jesus Christ and the imminent kingdom of God through preaching and soul lifting music.
3. To prepare believers for the coming of the lord Jesus Christ by sound spiritual teaching on the pulpit and bible classes.
3. To organize charity and relief operations for the less privileged and victims of natural disasters.
5. To inculcate and restore ethical Christian values into families to encourage cohesion in homes, and peaceful coexistence in our neighborhoods through prayers, counseling and other spiritual ministrations.
