Celestial Church of Christ

Celestial Church of Christ is a church where people that are heavily laden, people that seek for refuge, people that seek for the word of God, and people that seek for salvation satisfy their needs, such as the need for the word of God and for salvation. Celestial Church is all about knowing God. It is only in celestial church that God is worshipped the way he wishes to be worshipped. The book of revelation testifies to this. God is being worshipped in celestial church the way the Holy angels worship him. In celestial church, what is done in heaven is done on earth. Matt. 6 v 10 says "let thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven." All things done in the celestial church of Christ are revealed and ordained by the Holy Spirit.

History

Celestial Church of Christ is a church ordained by god. It was sent to earth on the 29th September 1947 in Port Novo, Republic of Benin through Rev. S.B.J. Oshoffa (1909 - 1985) whom then was a carpenter who went to fetch wood in the forest for his furniture work. Due to the great power of this church, the earth could not but testify to this power with what scientists and atheist would call an eclipse. This happened the same moment Rev. S.B.J Oshoffa was divinely visited in the wilderness. He spent 40 days and 40 nights in the wilderness, which was an antecedent to his spreading the word of god. Till date, in Celestial Church of Christ, great powers had being testified to in this holy church. Through our 55 years of existence, we are proud to say this is the last boat of salvation and also the church that Jesus had saved, as he had promised. Matt. 11:28 - 30 The mission of this fold is derived from the fact that many Christians who were been confronted with problems seek for solutions from fetish priests and other powers of darkness. This sole act makes them receive a spiritual mark which cannot make them see salvation. Thus; Celestial Church of Christ was sent into this world.
