MY PERSONAL TESTIMONY
I was born in and to a religious family, a house believing that by going to church and observing all the religious practices will get one to heaven. I grew up with this notion; however I added occultist practice to mine believing that going to church cannot solve all my problems.
In struggling to satisfy my longing, I became a prophet of doom boasting in devils power and initiated people into occult practices. But one glorious day, somebody witnessed CHRIST TO ME WHO LAY HIS life for my sin and that in Him alone there is salvation. I realized that I was erring believing in false hope of heaven, I therefore accepted Christ as my Lord and savior on this day August 25, 1978. Later I got married to Mrs. Rebecca Y. Babalola and God blessed our marriage with seven children, Dorcas, CHRISTIANA, Rhoda, Roseline, Ruth, Felix, SALOMON.
In the year 1992, God burdened my heart to take a step of faith to be a servant for Him, not long after I obeyed God’s call for my life, but I did not know exactly the step to take as to how I can be useful in Gods hand; because I felt a vacuum in me needed to be filled. With these thoughts in me , I met Rev. S.A. Owolabi, one of the Co_ director of Blue Mountain Baptist Bible college Ogbomoso Nigeria. He talked with me and counseled me and challenged me that if I really had conviction that the Lord was calling me to His ministry, there was the need for me to have some training; thus I was accepted to attend Blue Mountain Baptist Bible college Ogbomoso, Nigeria; an extension of Tabernacle Baptist Bible college Greenville, South Carolina U.S.A. for four years.(1995_1999).
Immediately after my graduation worked with Berean Independent Baptist church as Pastor Ogbomoso assistant Pastor for three and half years. Meanwhile when I was in college the Lord burdened my heart to go BENIN REPUBLIQUE and established a new Testament Bible Church, where I am for the Glory of God until this present time, praise GOD!
