Pastor W.F. Kumuyi of the Deeper Life Christian Ministry is scheduled to storm Calabar the Cross River State capital for a three day miracle crusade scheduled to hold from July 29th to 30th.
The state over seer of the church in Calabar, Professor Friday Uduigwoimen, a lecturer in the department of Philosophy University of Calabar who stood in for Pastor Kumuyi said the church has to play a prominent role in the affairs of the nation in this trying time with parts of the country experiencing severe insecurity.
“The church has a major role to play in curtailing the rate of insecurity in the country and that can only be through prayers and major crusades like this offers us the opportunity to pray and with our General Overseer coming to Calabar, we shall take time to pray and address the hearts of those who are daily carrying out attacks and bombing of innocent souls”.
Professor uduigwoimen said the church is not likely to come together under one name but since there are different doctrines and though the doctrines may be different but so long as the message is based on the word of God, no harm is done to the body of Christ.
He said arrangements have reached top level by the church to establish its University in Lagos in September this year and which is to be located in Ayobo in Lagos and will be called Anchor University.
He pointed out that there was nothing wrong for its members to seek public offices or join politics so long as there don’t involve in corrupt practices. He advised such members to play the game according to the rules and not to perpetrate fraud urging them to lead by example stressing that after all, “the Bible said that when the righteous are in authority the people enjoy”.
He assured those who would attend the event to expect matchless grace for victorious living, open doors for blessings, redemption from sin, sicknesses and curses, answers to long standing prayers and breakthrough in life.
Professor Friday Uduigwoimen then added that he is opposed to the notion by the government that churches should pay tax to federal government because majority of pastors and members are government workers who pay taxes on monthly bases.
