THE FELLOWSHIP

THE FELLOWSHIP

INTRODUCTION


Dearly beloved, I greet you in the name of whom we all have to do, the Lord Jesus Christ.

My name is Vince Ok (Da-Vinchi) and I am the humble servant put in the care of this group of the body of Christ. This is the day the Lord has made for us. We must rejoice and be glad in it. I had looked forward to this day and it was like it will never come, but come it has, to God be the glory.


It’s the 11th day of the 11th month of the year 2011; this is the beginning of a new phase in our ministry simply called “The Fellowship”. This is the birth of a new branch of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

HISTORY


I got born again as a very young student way back in 1980, the 26th of February to be exact, from a taped message titled “The Great White Throne Judgment” by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi, the general overseer of the Deeper Life Bible Church. I attended the Church afterwards for about four years then moved to several other Pentecostal Churches and finally ended up at the Household of God Church where I remained under tutelage from the very first day of inception from the 1st of February 1987 until the 30th of September 2013.

While in Household, I attended and graduated from the “All Nations For Christ Bible Institute” of the Church of God Mission in 1995 at the Lagos headquarters in Mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos.

I got called into the ministry on the 16th of June 1984 by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself when He paid me a visit while working on a school assignment that night

He gave me a mandate to reach the “rebellious” people of God with His word (Love) now, the time has come to fulfill that call. Please note, it is a MINISTRY and not a Church, at least not yet.

I got called into the ministry on the 16th of June 1984 by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself when He paid me a visit while working on a school project that night. (I was a student then) Awesome is an understatement in describing the experience.

The Lord gave me a mandate to reach the rebellious people of God with His word and Love. I got online with the ministry on the 11th of November 2011.

VISION


Is primarily to redirect the people of God to the proper worship of the God, the creator of the heavens and the earth (John 4:23,24) the one that brought about the salvation of mankind through the shedding of the blood of His first and only begotten son Jesus the Christ. (Romans. 5:8, Hebrews. 9:22) and also not forgetting to direct lost souls to the WAY, Jesus (John 14:6)

BELIEF


We believe that the Holy Bible, consisting of 39 books of the Old Testament and 27 books of the New Testament, is the inspired Word of God. We take the Bible as the final authority in all matters concerning Christian conduct and works.

We believe in One God the Creator of all things. We believe that the Godhead consists of three separate, distinct, and recognizable personalities and qualities, perfectly united in one. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are different Persons in the Godhead.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, and the only revealed member of the Godhead was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and was crucified on the cross for the sins of mankind; He died, was buried and rose from the dead on the third day. He ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father and He is one hundred percent true God and one hundred percent true man.

We believe in sanctification through the Word of God and by the Holy Spirit, and We believe in personal holiness, purity of heart and life. We believe that justification (or regeneration) is the act of God’s grace whereby one receives forgiveness and remission of sins and is counted righteous before God, through faith in the atoning blood of Jesus, standing before God as though he had never sinned.

We believe in water baptism, in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as distinct from the New Birth, and evidenced by speaking with tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance

We believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit. We believe all these are available to believers even today

We believe in the resurrection of the dead, the eternal joy of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost.

We believe that the Rapture (the first phase or stage of the SECOND COMING OF CHRIST) is the catching away from the earth of all living saints; and all who died in the Lord and it can happen any time from now.
