Christians cannot avoid persecution —Apostle Lawon

THE General Missions Director (GMD) of  Fullstature Missions International (FMI), Apostle Isaiah Lawon, has stated that the persecution of Christians could not be prevented.

He also urged the body of Christ to move closer to God.

The cleric stated this at the annual convention of FMI Advancing World Missions Conference (AWMC) held recently at the Conference Centre for the Nations, Ibadan, Oyo State.

The theme of this year’s convention was “Kingdom Force invading the Nations,” and the convention featured sermons from clerics, Bible study sessions, workshops, testimonies, and presentation of songs and drama from the youth  wing and different mission fields.

Among the clerics invited to minister were Reverend Alfred Itiowe; Mr Sam Kputu and Mr Ben Omoruyi of Calvary Ministries (CAPRO) and Reverend Isaac Omolehin of The Word Assembly,  Ilorin,  Kwara State.

In one of his sermons, with the theme, “You are free to come,” Omolehin noted that not all men had been faithful to pay back to God with services what God had done for them, stataing that “you have nothing to lose serving God rather, the value of whoever serves God appreciates.”
