What an encouragement to live for Him! Our strength for the present and hope for the future are not based on the stability of our own perseverance but on the fidelity of God. No matter what our need, we can count on the Father’s faithfulness. - Paul Van Gorder
A month comes when freedom is ushered in. That is what October is all about for you. I decree that your life, ministry, business, career and marriage receive total freedom henceforth in Jesus’ name. Amen. Happy New Month and Independence.
Rev. Dr. Supo Ayokunle, President/ CEO, Nigerian Baptist Convention
The Nigerian Baptist Convention, which Thomas Jefferson Bowen started in 1850, has grown into over 10,000 Churches with about 3,000,000 baptized members and up to 6.5 million worshipping members spread across the nation.
This denominational entity has metamorphosed into thirty-one Conferences (ecclesiastical regions) in Nigeria alone.
The work has spread to several other African nations including Republic of Benin, Cote D’Ivoire, Mali, Sierra Leone, Mozambique, Chad, Niger, Burkina Faso and South Sudan. The United Kingdom and the United States of America are also experiencing the influence of its growth and expansion.
