It was praise, dance, celebration and testimony of the good of God at Kingdom Power Chapel, Benin, on Monday, September 13, as All Minister Fellowship of Word Based Bishops and Apostle Peculiar Global Association marked her annual thanksgiving with the theme: Thanksgiving of Upgrade.
The Fellowship, which is said to be duely registered and incorporated, independent, interdenominational is an assembly of ordained Pastors, Evangelists, Prophets, Apostles, Bishops, archbishops, etc with no fewer than 250 general members, out of which 120 are said to be registered members.
In his welcome address, Bishop (Barrister) Akhigbe Solomon Wisdom, Archbishop/International Chief Prelate of the Fellowship said the Fellowship was not born out of ego or to compete with any association or other christian minister fellowship but was born to fulfill God’s plan.
“It was an association God used mysterious circumstances to establish and there has been no doubt God’s hands has been in it,” he noted.
He added that his desire to seeing christians working as a one body in Christ prompted him to establish the Felloy so that the body of Christ would be more united and stronger.
“We don’t care which group you belong – wether you are a Catholic or an Anglican, as long as you receive Jesus into your heart, we are very comfortable with you,” he said.
Taking his Bible text from the book of Hebrew 20 verses 21-24, in a brief sermon, Rev. (Dr.) Felix Omodude, founder, New Convenant Church, urged Christians to be more united by drawing closer to one another and strengthen one another’s faith particularly in this trying time, noting that Christ is aware of whatsoever happening to the Church (body of Christ).
The immediate past president, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, noted that the purpose why the fellowship was established was to draw christians closer to themselves and be more united as one.
A former labour leader in the defunct Bendel State but now a Clergy, Rev. Olu Aderibigbe, on his part, urged Christians to put their denomination aside and come as one body and fight the common enemy, adding that what makes christians one is Jesus Christ and that His (Christ) power should be used to fight the enemies.
“We should rise and forget about denominational issues – I am a Catholic, I am Pentecostal, I am C&S, or whatever, we should put all these our differences aside . We should come together.
“At this time that christians are facing persecution, it is time we drop all our differences; it is time we forget about religion sentiment and come together and fight the common enemy. Christians should come together and fight any attempt to impose any other religion on us,” he advocated.
