Reverend Toyin’s passion includes teaching the undiluted word of God with a focus on faith, prayer, deliverance, family, and fellowship. Our success is attributed to the faithfulness of the word of our LORD and Master in Mathew 28: 19-20; “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

WHAT WE BELIEVE
Preaching Christ. Transforming Lives. One Person at a Time. We Believe in the LORD Jesus Christ and His message of hope to save the world is the center of our ministry. He died, was buried, and rose again and as many that believe and confess Him are saved from eternal condemnation. “For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.” 1 COR 2:2
We believe in water baptism and the trinity; the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” Mathew 28:19.
Baptism enables believers to identify with the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ therefore claiming victory over sin through the resurrection power. According to Romans 10:9, Baptism only cannot save but confession and faith and continuing relationship in the Christ will. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
Mathew 26: 26-28 “While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take and eat; this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins’”.
We believe and partake in the Holy Communion (The Lord’s Supper) as a reminder of the body and blood that was broken and poured on the cross for the remission of our sin. We are commanded by the LORD Jesus to do this in His remembrance and it also serves as a reminder of His love for us. “For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, ‘This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.’ For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.” 1 COR. 11:23-26
When eating the Holy communion, we exchange our lives for His. We eat the bread which represents his body and drink the wine which signifies his blood thereby giving us access to all the blessings in the new covenant. “This is the blood of the covenant”.
