THE EVANGELISM MINISTRY
Evang. Obinna Onyemere
(Brother-In-Charge of the Evangelism Ministry)
"And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen." Mark 16:15-20.
The evangelical ministry of the bride assembly is called the evening light evangelic ministry. This ministry is anchored on the permissions of Zechariah 14:7 which tells us that "at the evening time, it shall be light". As the gentile days are running out and God's salvation time piece enters into the 11th hour, preparatory to the midnight hour arrival of our Lord Jesus Christ the group has the mandate to fish for souls ready to follow the direction as illuminated by the light in the word.
Fired with the passion to spread the message of the hour, as sounded by Prophet William Marrion Branham, the voice of the 7th angel (Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7), this ministry has a two-way approach to their evangelical activities; these are open air evangelism and evangelical rallies. The open air method is a large crowd-driven evangelical crusade where the group, usually on Mondays and Sundays, through the direction of the Holy Spirit, moves to a particular spot (ex. market places, estates, etc), with our gospel musical band causing attraction, before preaching the salvation message of the hour. Those who give their lives to Christ in such crusades are either taken to nearby river for water baptism (Acts 2:38) or invited to attend Tuesday Shiloh programme for water baptism.
The other method of evangelism which is through street rallies, when in view of an upcoming programme, the group mobilizes large vehicular convoy of evangelists and brethren to the streets, to announce church programmes through: sharing hand-bills, preaching, music and praise dancing; indeed this group has done so much in winning souls for Christ.
This is a special evangelism to reach out to people, especially the youths and christians alike who are being destroyed by doctrines of men with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ for their salvation. We re-orient them on how to be heaven-prepared. "And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. Daniel 12:3."
