This week’s home church meeting was entertaining as members gathered. Quite a number had experienced success in their professional exams, and we all celebrated as they recounted their testimonies. We then delved into the day’s discussion – a beautiful story in I Samuel 13:16-14:15 about boldness. We saw Jonathan, the royal prince, attempting to take […]
“The refreshing thing about our home churches is the freedom to be ‘you’ without fear of being judged, or condemned. For us it’s never about do’s and don’ts; it’s rather about caring for one another, and being there for each other. We call it ‘home.’” ~ Pastor WD Favour on Understanding the Church Enjoy this […]

When I asked if it was recorded on video, she said that […]
My sermon yesterday morning was on ‘How to transform your desires into realities.’ It was essentially a message on the power of faith to move mountains and positively alter your circumstances. I quoted extensively from the eleventh chapter of the Gospel of Saint Mark, and I encourage you to meditate on the Scriptures used in […]

"The love we share is not earthly; it’s divine and transcends human comprehension. Our oneness in God is the mystery that makes our hearts beat as one.

The love of God is the heart of our home churches. Not only do we share common values and priorities, we also share the same spiritual genes based on the blood of Jesus Christ. This is the real power of our fellowship. ~ Pastor WD Favour on Understanding the Church Enjoy this week’s reports… […]
“The friendships we share, the connectedness to one another, the inner feelings of oneness and love that we have…these are invaluable assets that make our home churches such a sweet and pleasant family.” ~ Pastor WD Favour Experience the joy and ecstasy of our home church fellowships… “A light snack awaited everyone on their arrival.

At certain phases in every venture, every thing seem negative and hopeless. Most people become sad here and quit. Yet these are the most critical phases because at these phases the force of nature is ‘decaying’ the old to release the new. So, if all around you at this time appear negative and hopeless, don’t […]
“In our home churches, everybody is important, every persons worth is valued, and everyone’s skills are celebrated and utilized. Each individual within our home churches has something unique to offer to the overall wellbeing of every other member. This is the most beautiful aspect of our union in the LORD.” Enjoy this week’s reports from […]
On Sunday 28th February, 2010, we reached out with the love of God to 12 needy families.

Ultimately, this is the essence of God’s love – the heart of true religion – to care for the very poorest of the poor amongst us.
“I do not intend to define the church in very narrow terms. The Church can take many forms in it’s expressions in time and space: a massive stadium celebration galore, as well as a small, simple Christian friends club.” Pastor WD Favour on Understanding the Church I asked the home church leaders to share […]
Helping the helpless is the central focus of all of our Home Churches’ missions activities here in Nigeria.
“In a world that is enamored by mega churches – huge crowds and large numbers of spectators, I’m more interested in mini churches – compact, small groups of intimate brothers and sisters. Jesus defined the Church as ‘Where two or three are gathered together in my name…’” ~ Pastor WD Favour on Understanding the Church […]
If the members within our churches are trained, empowered, and equipped to take care of small groups of other members in our various homes, millions of cash being spent today to maintain expensive religious building projects will become more available to improve the lives of the poor within our churches and the wider society. ~ […]
Life is full of hard choices, but you can ask God today to fill your heart with His wisdom and discernment to make the right decisions amidst life’s hard choices.
It is a dangerous mistake to judge others solely on the basis of the observable facts of their lives
