THE DIVINE ORDER – Our Mission
On the 29th of September, 1947, in the deep mystery of the divine appearance, during prayer, of the winged angel bathed in intense light, word came from God to the Founder:
“It is the wish of God to send you on an errand of preaching to the world. Many nominal Christians there are who, when confronted by difficulties and problems of this world, they run after fetish priests and other powers of darkness for all kinds of assistance. Consequently, on their death, they cannot see Christ because, by their action, Satan has left his spiritual mark on them. To assist you in your work so that men may listen to and follow you, miraculous works of Holy divine healing will be carried out by you in the name of Jesus Christ. These works of divine healing and God’s spiritual mark on you will testify to the fact that God sent you”.
Below is our Article of Faith, all our beliefs are summed up in it:
We believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended into hell.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Celestial Church of Christ,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
Celestial Church of Christ (C.C.C.) is a Christian church that embraces all the qualities of the church of Christ like any other Christians denominations. The Church through the inspiration of God was descended through the pastor Founder Past Reverence S.B.J. Oshofa in Port Nova Benin Republic in West Africa in the year 1947.
Within a very short time the church moved from Port Nova to Lagos Nigeria, and the head quarter of the Church was later established at Makoko in Logos Nigeria. And from here the branches were established in all the town and cities of Nigeria and also throughout the whole world.
Central Cathedral Parish in Abuja was established in the 1980’s. It is the primary C.C.C. church to be established in Northern Nigeria. The Shepherd in charge of the parish is Superior Evangelist Paul Jaiyola, while the Chairman of the parochial committee members of the parish is Senior Evangelist Emmanuel Onwodi
CCC Central Cathedral Abuja is the headquarter of the C.C.C. Abuja, and it is the largest parish with a congregation of about 700 registered members. Our doors have been continuously open to the public and the members of the congregations since 1987. We are a Christian believing Church and we make Jesus Christ the central of all our activities and we totally believe in Him as the only Son of God and our savior..
