mankind. As the world was busy celebrating Valentine’s day in February, the Church - one of God’s agencies here on earth - celebrated marriage and God’s love. The adversary loves to wage war against whatever is of God but we know that he is fighting a lost battle for the bible assures us in Romans 8:37: "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." Though the statistics on marriages are not encouraging, the Church continues to soldier on in strengthening the stakes.
The love of God, though given, is never forced and though abused, is ever forgiving. Remember, true love never fails – 1 Cor. 13:8; true love forgives easily; true love thinks the best of the other person; true love makes excuses and true love never gives up. John 3:16 states For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God so loved the world that He gave sacrificially. Have you received His kind of love? What kind of love do you know and what kind of love are you giving? Remember you cannot give what you don’t have. Receive the free love of Christ today.

March – Fireproof Your Marriage!!!
Marriage is an institution ordained by God and the Church is committed to its success. Following the success of our valentine weekend events, many couples have signed up for a six weeks study forum to further ‘fireproof their marriages’. Marriage is a covenant, not a mere contract and it is incumbent upon us to quit demanding contractual terms and continue to offer ourselves sacrificially in our marriages. With both spouses sacrificially giving, both their needs will be met. You cannot afford to miss this 6 weeks journey to deeper intimacy and better understanding of yourself and your spouse. This forum is highly recommended as part of the Church’s commitment to you and your marriage.

Financial Empowerment Deut. 8:18 - But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. There are many misconceptions about money and one of the greatest lies about money is the one which Satan has propounded over the years. The saying goes thus: ‘Money is the root of all evil’. The truth, as revealed in the scriptures is that the love of money is the root of evil and not money itself (1 Tim. 6:10). Money is only an enabler. It enables a person’s plans, whether good or evil, helping to bring vision to reality. It can also enable people to indulge in excesses. You may have heard it said that just as fire is a bad master yet a good servant, so also is money. Money has mastered many and continues to wreak havoc in many homes and relationships.
The bible teaches in Matt. 6:24 that anyone controlled by money is unable to be free to worship and serve God but instead ends up despising the Lord God their maker. It is easy to fall into the trap of always wanting more and putting the desire and quest for money above all things to the detriment of relationships and, ultimately, ones salvation. The scripture in Deut 8:18 makes a very strong statement that should help Christians navigate the issue of money and put it in proper perspective. This scripture calls us to remember the Lord, never forgetting that He created all things, including wealth; He gives/gave you the

ability to get it; your wealth has a purpose. God loves to bless His children who have discovered the Godly purpose for wealth and who also fully understood the responsibility of being a good steward of what He has given. As Christians, we have a responsibility to increase our knowledge of financial matters so that we might become good and wise stewards of the resources God places in our hands. To this end, I recommend to you the Financial Empowerment Seminar. Make plans to attend and get empowered. Pastor Chris Ifonlaja.
Proverbs 22:17 “A merry heart does good like medicine”
As the boat was sinking, the skipper lifted his voice to ask: "Does anybody know how to pray?" One man spoke confidently in answer: "Yes, Captain, I do."
The captain nodded. "That's all right then," he declared. "You go ahead and pray. The rest of us will put on life-jackets. They're one short."
