The Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church, Ayo Ni O, Surulere District, says it takes evangelism seriously in all it does and would continue to prioritise it as the church clocks 50 this year.
The Chairman, 50th Anniversary Committee of the church, Special Apostle Festus Ajani, described evangelism as the special command God gave the church.
He said this during the recent unveiling of the anniversary logo in commemoration of the church’s 50th anniversary at the Surulere District Headquarters in Lagos.
The unveiling, which was done amid social distancing, is considered the forerunner to the anniversary of the church.
Ajani said, “Just like a human being who have reached 50 years, jubilee is a period of freedom; a period you look back and see all that God has done for you.
“As a spiritual church, we have a period during which there will be open-air crusade revival, revival is also part of the regular exercise through which we evangelise.”
Ajani said the anniversary would provide the platform for the people of the church to display their talents to the glory of God.
Also present to unveil the anniversary logo alongside Ajani were the Supervising Apostle for Physical Development and Project Management Ministry, Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church, Surulere district, Special Apostle Deji Oyenuga; District General Secretary, Special Apostle George Ogunleye; and Deputy District General Secretary, Special Apostle Benjamin Alaka, among others.
According to the church leadership, the Lord has been gracious and the current pandemic will not be allowed to prevent her from celebrating God’s faithfulness.
“We are celebrating 50 years of God’s faithfulness in our lives since we started 50 years ago,” the Chairman and General Leader, Surulere District, C&S Movement Church, Ayo Ni O, Prophet Sunday Funsho Korode, said.
He noted that it had been a wonderful experience seeing members of the C&S Movement keeping to the faith of its founding fathers.
The General Leader, who was represented by George Ogunleye, District General Secretary, revealed that the founding fathers of Ayo Ni O returned to Nigeria from the United Kingdom as young graduates, and had enjoyed a wonderful experience with the church’s global growth ever since.
“With oneness of spirit, the leadership was followed with all sincerity and faithfulness, and all of us worked with one spirit and spiritual development took over the whole affairs and God Has been directing our steps one after the other,” Korode stated.
Ajani, the 50th anniversary committee chair added that the anniversary was a landmark event because, without the logo unveiling, the church could not go ahead with the anniversary plans.
“The logo unveiling is the symbol of the celebration and the identity of the church to showcase that this is the logo we are using to celebrate with,” Ajani added.
He said the church started from a humble beginning, with branches in Nigeria, Canada, US, UK, South Africa, Italy, and other parts of the world.
