There was unlimited praise, singing and dancing as members of Watchtower Christian Assembly (WCA), a pentecostal church headquartered in Ikeja, Lagos, celebrated the church’s 10th year anniversary on Sunday 25th September, 2022.
The celebration service was themed; ‘My Help’.
Men, women, youths and children of the church were beautifully dressed dancing to songs from the choir as they worshipped God.
The church was completely filled up such that some congregants had to remain standing while the service lasted.
Besides singing and dancing, the anniversary was celebrated with different activities that those who attended will not forget in a hurry.
Speaking during the celebration service, the senior pastor of the church, Samuel Adeleke Olayinka, explained that the celebration was not just about singing the church’s praise, but to reflect on God’s benevolence, goodness and mercies within the 10 years of existence.
Pastor Sam, as he is fondly called, further noted that the purpose of the church was to contribute its quota to the expansion of Christ’s Kingdom by getting men “breaded, buttered, bettered, bolstered and boosted.
“We achieve this purpose and mission by evolving a system of hunger for the Word. We believe the Word of God is the ultimate mechanism to get life work and drive it into success and fulfillment. So, we mobilize souls, and apply both conservative and modern creative techniques to execute the great commission, to get their hearts open to their ultimate need,” he added.
Speaking further, he said life was interesting and worthwhile when God is given the driver’s seat. This is appropriated if His ideas, principles and ways are fully embraced (Job 22:23-30).
The guest minister, Pastor Tokunbo Oshokoya, a popular tele-evangelist, in his sermon stressed on the need to leverage on God’s help, which is ever available, to secure all-round rest, peace and prosperity in every Christian’s life.
Using the life of King Asa in the Bible as basis for his message, where truth is taught, believed and engaged as lifestyle, in a nation like Nigeria, church or family, cheap and permanent victories are consistent blessings (2 Chr. 14 to 16).
Founded on September 30th 2012, the church currently has three other branches in Ogun State.
