Church of the Week: Covenant Christian Centre
Covenant Christian Centre was Founded On March 30, 1994, and was consecrated by Bishop David Oyedepo and exists to bless the local community, city, and nation in which she is planted. “God will give seed to the sower” 2 Corinthians 9:10. It is the earnest prayer and expectation of the church that the Word of God expressed through her medium will serve as seeds of faith planted in the rich soil of human hearts and will shoot forth as fruit trees with the sap of character and ministry. The Word of God at CCC will serve to equip individuals with practical knowledge, concepts, and dimensions of God’s Kingdom, which will cause you to possess your inheritance and enter into the fullness of God’s will, plan, purpose, and promises for your life.
Church Vision and Mandate:
THE VISION OF INSIGHTS FOR LIVING IS TO TEACH CHRISTIANS WHO THEY ARE IN CHRIST JESUS, AND HOW TO LIVE A VICTORIOUS LIFE IN THEIR COVENANT RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES.
The fulfillment of that mission takes place when those believers become rooted and grounded enough in God’s word to reach out and teach others these same principles.
We are called to lead people, primarily born-again believers, to the place where they operate proficiently in biblical principles of faith, love, healing, prosperity; redemption, and righteousness, and to the place where they can share those principles with others.
We are called to assist believers in becoming rooted, grounded and established in the word of God by teaching them to give God’s word first place in their lives. (Colossians 1:23; Psalm 112).
We are called to reveal mysteries, victorious revelations of God’s word, that have been hidden from ages (Colossians 1:25-28).
We are called to build an army of mature believers bringing them from milk to meat, from religion to reality. We are called to train them to become skillful in the word of righteousness, to stand firm in the spiritual warfare against the kingdom of darkness (Hebrews 5:12-14; Ephesians 6:10-28).
We are called to proclaim, ‘Jesus is Lord’ from the top of the world to the bottom and all the way around.
