The General Superintendent Of Assemblies Of God Nigeria Rev Dr Chidi Okoroafor with the Paper I LOVE MY CHURCH at the Ongoing 2018 Strategic Church Growth Summit for North Central Zone 1 and North West Zone holding at the National Worship Center Garki Abuja.
“God has greatly helped the Assemblies Of God Nigeria from cradle till date. She has moved from Foundational mushroom to much room Church, she has become a force to reckon with in the comity of great Denominations in Nigeria. Anyone who writes about Christianity in Nigeria and omits Assemblies Of God Nigeria while talking about frontline denominations committed a wilful historical atrocity.
“An objective appraisal of the Assemblies Of God, Nigeria must necessarily consider her geographical spread, full time Ministerial workforce, liberal leadership opportunities, geographical spread of leadership, insistence on standard, anti-one-man centric stance, retirement benefits to her Ministers and those who work at her National Headquarters(Favourable conditions of Service)”
“I am writing, having had membership in this Church for about four uninterrupted decades. I have also been very privileged to grow in this Church from joining as a member to being baptized in water, became a full member(communicant), became a committed Zealous Member and worker in the Church, went to the Bible Church, became a Pastor, became a leader at various levels, locally, Sectional, District, and General Council. I did not just emerge as General Superintendent. I was. Once an Assistant General Superintendent, Executive Committee Members, District Superintendent l, Cordinator of various Departments, etc.”.
“The Profile are not meant to impress but get you agree that I can say a few authoritatively having passed through this Church at various levels of membership and responsibility(rank and file of the Church) I hereby engage you to think about the positive contributions you can make to fix this Church. It is our own, we shall not let it go down in our Time. All your days in this Church, I Pray that you will be a plus and not Minus. “Amen ”
“Although this Church began intensively at Old Umuahia Abia State and spread up from there, it is not exaggeration that thsiw who Joined the Ministry are bid force to reckon with.

“From the Bible Times, Position has never been Spread. The fact of theocracy in the affairs of the Church cannot be over emphasized. It is funny when some people drunk with trend of over democratization of the Church and who may not want to get cheap Political points, begin to appeal claiming they are marginalized in position and Distribution. However, Assemblies Of God Nigeria has been reasonably just in this regard. Howbeit, it should not be pushed too hard because of God’s factor. It is not Wordly Politics and Distribution.”. He Said.
