PRESIDENT of Christ Apostolic Church (C.A.C), Pastor Abraham Akinosun, has charged Christians not to give room for distraction, but rather be committed in contributing cheerfully to the growth of the church.
Akinosun stated this at the thanksgiving service of the 27th anniversary of CAC, Power of God Saves Worldwide, popularly known as Christ City of Peace Evangelical Ministry (CCOPEM), held last Sunday at the church headquarters at Akowonjo, Egbeda, Lagos State.
He added that the act of giving and building the church with clean hearts was one of the qualities of true Christians.
“I urge people to always have the will to contribute their quota in the vineyard and await multiple rewards from God,” Akinosun stated.
He also urged Christians not to be discouraged from giving their best in the work of God because it would hinder their progress, blessings and also delay God’s plan for their lives.
Akinosun commended the visionary of the ministry, Prophet Moses Olagunju, for his steadfastness and commitment to the growth of the church at large, just as he also saluted all the clerics and members for their support regarding the development of the ministry.
The event, which was graced by clerics including Pastor Emmanuel Odejobi; Pastor Peter Ayanbode; representative of the General Evangelist of C.A.C., Prophet Kayode Abiara, Senior Personal Assistant, Pastor Johnson Oshati, among other clerics, also had the attendance of notable gospel artistes such as Evangelists Bola Are, Dunni Olanrewaju, popularly known as Opelope Anointing, among others.
In his remarks, Olagunju appreciated Akinosun and Abiara for their support over the years and efforts towards the transformation of the church across the globe and commended and prayed for all branches of the church including Nigeria, Ghana and overseas.
“It is good to celebrate, especially at a time like this, but we must not be distracted by the jamboree. Rather, we should focus more on how to seek the face of God for the liberation of the country and also spread the gospel of Christ and win more souls for Him. As for me, this is what I will do for the rest of my life, even to the point of death,” he said.
