APPRECIATING GOD

REV BENSON CHARGES BELIEVERS TO APPRECIATE GOD

Rev. O. T. Benson charged the Church to always appreciate God. The Bible reading was taken from Luke 17: 11 – 19. The texts of emphasis were verses 15 – 19. The Superintendent commenced the sermon by defining appreciation as the act of estimating the qualities of things and giving them their proper value. It is also a thankful recognition.  

He pointed out that Christians’ lack of appreciating God is due to their lack of consciousness of what people are passing through. This tendency of ingratitude, as noted by the man of God, is a major reason for stagnation. If someone does not thank God for where God has brought him to, he will not get to the destination God plans for him.

Also, the Reverend noted that appreciation gives us a platform to receive greater blessings from God; it indicates that we value the blessings of God which prompts us to receive a glorious future.

He concluded the sermon by charging believers to be like the Samaritan that was healed of his leprosy by Jesus, and always return to give thanks to God.

DIVINE HELP

REV O. T. BENSON EXHORTS THE CHURCH ON THE NEED FOR DIVINE HELP

                   The Superintendent, Rev O. T. Benson, gave a sermon titled “Divine Help” during the first Sunday Service of the month. The Bible Reading was taken from Psalms 121:1 – 2. The text of emphasis was verse 2. The man of God began the sermon by urging Christians to be steadfast in prayers as it is the only way man can communicate with God. In defining divine help, the Cleric stated that it means to alleviate the burden of someone by giving assistance to the person to go in a specific direction.

          The Minister also noted that the way a believer can access divine help is by trusting in God and approaching Him in prayers with total dependency on God alone. Another important point admonished by the Minister was that a believer must be very careful of where one seeks for help.

          The highlight of the sermon was the exposition of the gloriousness of divine help. They are:

  • The help that makes you a wonder to many (Jonah 9:8 – 9);
  • It is a help that put your enemies into confusion;
  • It is a help that puts an end to fruitless efforts;
  • It removes all limitations from every aspect of your life;
  • It is a help that gives healing from longtime sicknesses;
  • It is a help that handles all forms of impossibilities.

To conclude the sermon, the Minister urged the Church to constantly seek divine help in all aspects of life.

REDEEMING THE TIME

A SOLEMN CALL ON CHRISTIANS TO REDEEM THE TIME BY ELDER ENOBONG ATAT.

Elder Enobong Atat began his sermon by reminding Christians that time is a precious gift from God to mankind and as such, our most possession.

Thus, time is an essential component of life. The minister further noted that we cannot retrieve time, relive it, stretch it, borrow it, loan it, stop it or store it. It is therefore important to redeem the lost time.

In redeeming the time, four steps were listed to keep our hearts and minds in the right perspective regarding the time.
They are:

The brevity of time and the length of eternity.

Realize the uncertainty of tomorrow.

Learn to say NO and understanding what the will of God is.

Be wise as serpents (Mathew 10:16).

The cleric concluded by noting that we cannot afford to be idle and as such, our priorities should be prayer, bible reading, working in spirit, witnessing and not in vain talks.

Nonetheless, in redeeming the time, we must live our lives as unto God.

DILIGENCE

A BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE SERMON MINISTERED BY ELDER (ARC.) OKON OBOT ON THE TOPIC “DILIGENCE” DURING THE 4TH SUNDAY SERVICE IN MAY.

The Minister began by defining diligence based on the dictionary and the bible. He then summarized the meaning of diligence as doing all that you do with awareness that God is with you always and continuously watching over you (Psalms 3:5) not only when you are asleep, awake, working, walking, indeed always as long as you breath. The Bible Reading was taken from Ephesians 6:7 and Psalms 3:5.

The Minister went further to define man as a person who executes diligence. He stated that when a believer understands this, he can close the door to the devil by renewing his mind – soul – and keeping his body – his flesh under the dominion of his recreated (born again) spirit.

Biblical characters such as Joseph, Job, Elisha and Paul were pointed out as diligent examples. In conclusion, the Congregation was charged to use the word of God at all times which is a useful guide to living a life of diligence.

THE BELIEVERS’ INHERITANCE IN THE NEW COVENANT

A BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE SERMON MINISTERED BY ELDER (DR.) GODWIN BASSEY ON THE TOPIC “THE BELIEVERS’ INHERITANCE IN THE NEW COVENANT” DURING THE SECOND QUARTER COMMUNION SERVICE.

          The Minister began by admonishing the congregation to understand the reasons why they are partaking in the Holy Communion. The Bible Reading which was taken from Hebrews 8:1-3 revealed God’s plan of writing His new covenant on our hearts rather than on tablets.

          Elder Godwin Bassey also made it known that as believers, we are operating under the new covenant in which Jesus is at the center. Further, the first miracle of God in a believer’s life as noted by the Minister is God releasing his grace upon us through the blood of Jesus Christ and whosoever is in Christ is a new creature (2nd Corinthians 5:17).

          In conclusion, the Minister encouraged Christians to accept Jesus Christ and acknowledge the price He paid for us in order for us to live fulfilled lives and have eternal life; trusting in God at all times and being steadfast.

Direct Quotes by Elder (Dr.) Godwin Bassey

“Jesus did it for us once and for all.”

“He has settled our eternity.”

“The problem of sin as far as you are concerned has been finally finished and terminated it in the new covenant.”

“Any Christian who has not received salvation has not started a new life in Christ”

“There is no excuse for living in sin.”

“Any Christian who has not received salvation has not started a new life in Christ.”

WALKING IN THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF GOD

A BRIEF COMPENDIUM OF THE SERMON PRESENTED BY REV. O. T. BENSON ON THE TOPIC “WALKING IN THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF GOD” ON SUNDAY, 25TH APRIL, 2021

The Minster began by defining consciousness as the ability in which someone is able to know and assimilate what is happening around one’s environment. Thus, it is the awareness of something for what it is. The bible reading was taken from Psalm 27: 1-6 and Psalm 23: 4. The text of emphasis was Psalm 27: 1.

The Clergy noted that walking in the consciousness of God is depicted in having the knowledge and awareness of what God is all about. He asserted that whatsoever a man is conscious of determines the quality of his life. Therefore, a man conscious of who God is will fulfil God’s purpose in his life.

The Minister charged the congregation to emulate David by always trusting and seeking God. David saw God as a fortress and his hiding pavilion. The scriptures read pointed out that God is a shield and fortress and will always fight for those who trust in him and walk in his consciousness for He never fails.

“As Christians, we have to be conscious of the protective power of God in order to live a free life.”

“The creations by God is to make man conscious of God.”

IF JESUS HAD NOT RISEN FROM THE DEAD

REV O. T. BENSON CHARGES THE CHURCH ON THE VICTORIES THE CHURCH HAS IN THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST TO MARK EASTER SUNDAY

Rev. O. T. Benson revealed the victories the Church has in Christ’s Resurrection in a brief charge before leading the Congregation to a session of prayers. The Bible reading was taken from the book of Psalms 124: 1-8 and Mathew 28: 1-6. The minister noted at the beginning of the sermon that if Jesus did not die for us, we would still be in the dark. He went further to list the benefits of the Resurrection of Jesus:

  • It is the gateway to our victory: if Jesus had not been risen from the dead we would have no victory.
  • It is the gateway for our achievements: Christ’s Resurrection brought success to Christians.
  • His resurrection is the gateway to our dominion: it gives the believer the assurance that they are in-charge. We subdue and dominate because of the Resurrection of Christ.

DIRECT QUOTES BY REV O. T. BENSON

  • “Victory is found in the Resurrection of Christ”
  • “His death did not only bring impact on our souls, he died a holistic death.”
  • “The Resurrection of Christ covers all aspects of our lives, and not just the spiritual.”

The President, The Executive Committee and Members of Ewet Youth Development Association

Calvary greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!

On behalf of the Resident Minister, The Exco, The Church Committee and entire members of the congregation, I welcome you to the Church this morning: The Church of your great grand fathers established in 1909.

We are happy for the giant strides this Association has made over the years in providing a conducive environment for the Church to exist and operate.

We recall the support the Association gave when storms arose to swallow this Church. You mobilized all the resources in your arsenal and the enemy flee. Today we have one indivisible Church, Qua Iboe Church, Ewet Offot which has metamorphosed to a Township Superintendency Headquarters.

Our relationship is not a one-off affair but a mutual relationship that makes us consult from time to time for the benefit of both parties.

As a responsive partner we have always responded to your requests within the limits of available resources.

Apart from the financial assistance this Church has given over the years, we have engaged a number of your sons and daughters in paid employment in the School.

Last time you requested for some scholarship for your children. In consultation with the School Board headed by Elder David Etukudo we have approved a full Tuition free scholarship for one girl and one boy for six years in the school with effect from the next School year (i.e. 2021/2022 school year).

This morning we have, in the spirit of the season of love, commissioned 4 water points to provide water to the immediate community of the Church. We shall do more.

We however request for more support from you. In this era of security challenges we look up to you for support; on the facilities we have provided, we urge you to ensure that they are safeguarded.

Once again I extend the greetings of the Easter Season to the Exco and members of your Association.

Thank you!

AN ADDRESS PRESENTED BY THE CHURCH COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN, ELDER ENOBONG E. ATAT, AT THE 12TH CONGREGATIONAL FORUM OF QUA IBOE CHURCH, EWET OFFOT, 112 NWANIBA ROAD, UYO HELD ON SUNDAY, 28TH MARCH, 2021.

Protocol,

It is with gratitude to God that I stand here on behalf of the Executive and members of this Church Committee to address you at this occasion of the 12th Congregational Forum of our Church, the Centre of Praise and Miracle.

Today’s occasion is significant because it is the first in the life of this administration which came to office in January, 2020. Let me extend to you felicitations of a happy Easter in advance, a period which always reminds us of the sacrifice our Lord Jesus paid to redeem man from eternal damnation and gives us hope for life eternal.

I thank the Almighty God for his faithfulness over the affairs of the Church despite the festering challenges facing the Church and humanity.  You will recall with nostalgia that soon after we assumed office in January 2020, COVID-19 pandemic reared its ugly head with attendant restrictions and lockdown. Churches, for months, were under lock and key and the economic lifeline of many members suffered. When we were about heaving a sigh of relief, End-SARS protest took its toll coupled with the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic which is still a major challenge facing us today.

In all these, we are grateful to God that the doors of the Church have not remained closed. To God be the Glory.

I must place on record my special appreciation to the General Superintendent and Chairman of Conference, Revd./Dcns. Ekpedeme Moffat Effanga for his fatherly support to the Church. Our Superintendent and Resident Minister, Rev./Dcns. O. T. Benson deserves a special mention for providing the spiritual direction and guidance throughout the turbulent times.

I am deeply grateful to members of the Church Committee, Fellowships, Associations, the Choir Groups, Departments, Committees, Units and the entire congregation for the spiritual and moral support to my administration in the past one year. Surely your labour of love will not be in vain.

Sadly, within the year, the Church lost prominent Elders and members of the Church; members whose support and contributions will ever remain indeliblein our minds. May their souls remain in peace till we meet to part no more.

In my inaugural speech on 5th January, 2020, we promised to uphold the principles of truth, love, transparency and holiness.

We promised to speak and depend on truth for “His Word is Truth” and truth shall set us free; John 8:32. Guided by the Holy Spirit, Our 10-point Agenda focused on:

  • Evangelism/Revival – to win more souls for Christ.
  • Prayers – to make our Church “a house of prayers, praise and miracles”. (Mark 11:17).
  • Fellowships/Associations – to strengthen and support Fellowships and Associations as groups where God will identify talents for His services.
  • Sunday School/Children’s Ministry – to bring children to the knowledge of God.
  • Choir Groups/Evening of Hymns – to harness the powers of praise and worship to draw men, women and children to experience miracles in their lives.
  • Combined Service – to use the service as a means of strengthening the 6 sister Churches.
  • Committees – to work with various Committees, both ad-hoc and statutory for the physical and spiritual development of the Church.
  • Church Investment – to explore other investment options and expand learning opportunities for our children like in the establishment of asecondary school.
  • National Conference – to meet our obligations to the National office in payment of tithes, national assessment levies, etc.
  • Project Envelopes/Inputs/Congregational Forum – On assumption of office, we had suspended the use of the Project Envelopes as we needed time to identify the Project for the year. The ban was later lifted after we had identified and initiated action on the project for the year.

Today’s Congregational Forum is  a  fulfillment of the promise we made to adopt a bottom-up approach in  gathering  inputs for policy direction from the congregation that elected us on Sunday, 22nd December, 2019.

OUR SCORECARD:

This administration is aware of the expectations of this great congregation. We cannot say we have arrived as much still remains to be done. However within the one year of this administration we have recorded these modest achievements:

  • Increase in Church Registration/Membership:

From an average membership of 647 in 2019, we registered a total of 934 members in 2020. The registration and renewal of membership exercise was a huge success and it culminated in the production of the 2020 Church Register. The 2021 exercise is ongoing.

  • Strengthening of Weak Associations:

The performance of Associations like Nka Emem, Nka Edidemere, Nka Unwana at the 2020 Harvest Thanksgiving service was a testimony to the foresight of this administration in injecting fresh minds and hands to build the erstwhile weak Associations. We pray for God’s mercies and blessings to the new and old members of the various Associations.

  • Participation in Seminars , Conferences and National Church Events:

Members and officers of this Church attended various workshops, seminars and the 133rd National Conference, in addition to ones hosted by the church.

  • Support to the National Office and Superintendency:

By your support and prayers, the Church was able to meet her obligations in the payment of tithes, mission funds, National Assessment, etc. The Churchalso rendered significant financial support to the sister Churches in the Superintendency.

  • Successful Organization of Major Church Events:

Despite COVID-19 pandemic and the End-SARS protests with attendant economic challenges, this administration was able to organize the following events:

  • Harvest ThanksgivingService – with the theme “Fruitful Harvest Despite the Season” Psalm 107:37-38. Indeed God used the innovations of the Chairman and members of the 2020 Planning Committee to bless the church.
  • 24-Hours Harvest of Praise with the theme “Nothing Can Stop the Praise”.
  • The Project Thanksgiving for the Purchase of a 100KVA Generator.

Apart from the physical and financial gains these events brought to the Church, they affirmed that with God nothing is impossible. When it appeared that we were all cast down, there was a lifting up (Job 22:29).

  • Capacity Building and Provision of Basic Tools for the Security Men:

In addition to the 2-day In-Service Training for the securitymen, basic tools, equipment and kits have been provided to boost the morale of the securitymen.

  • Raising of Church Fence behind the Baptistery and Provision of Security Wires:

Following an attempt to burgle the Resident Pastor’s Manse, this administration approved the raising of the fence behind the Baptistery and installed security wires at highly vulnerable points within the premises.

  • Provision of Photographs of Past Church Committee Chairmen:

As a way of documenting the history of past Chairmen, this administration has been able to dig into the archives and provide framed pictures of past Chairmen of this Church from 1988 till date.

  • Provision of 2000-Litre Gee-Pee Water Tank to Uyo Prison (Correctional Centre):

Through the instrumentality of the Prison Ministry of the Church, this administration was able to provide a 2000-litre Gee-Pee Tank to the female ward of Uyo Prison.

  • Renovation of  Church Secretariat, Church Roof and Installation of Ceilings:

Phase I of the on-going renovation exercise by this administration has seen to the face-lift given to the Secretariat, Church roof and ceilings which were blown off by a severe windstorm during the lockdown.

  • Payment of Inherited Liabilities:

This administration inherited unpaid staff leave grant for 2019 as well as Contributory Pension Arrears of July to December, 2019. These have been cleared; the details running into several thousands of Naira. As at today, salaries of staff running into more than Five Hundred Thousand Naira (N500,000.00) monthly are paid regularly in addition to meeting statutory financial demands of the church.

2021 PROJECTS:

This administration has shown prudence in the management of funds. The innovation of using the Maintenance Committee for checks and balances in the accounting system has reduced the running cost significantly of some units and departments. More still needs to be done.

I must commend the Finance Department, the Exco for keeping track of all income and expenditure by this administration. With the presentation and approval of the 2020 Annual Account from 1st January to 31st December, 2020 and its approval by the Church Committee, this administration intends to draw up a budget for the following projects for year 2021:

  • Roll over of 2020 Project Fund Launch for the purchase of a Generator.
  • Commencement of Work for the Building of the Business House behind UBA, Udo Ikpe Street, Uyo.
  • Support to the School Board for the Secondary School Project.

These are gigantic projects. This administration believes that Rome was not built in one day and that the journey of a milestone begins with a step. We shall pursue these projects painstakingly but without compromising the spiritual life and welfare support to members and host community as part of our corporate social responsibility.

The different Units, Departments and groups will still be supported for better performance.

CHALLENGES IN THE CHURCH:

  • Poor attitude to registration in Fellowships and Associations.
  • Poor attendance of members at Bible Study, Fellowship and Association meetings.
  • Rising welfare and employment needs of members against the backdrop of dwindling financial resources; and lack of employment opportunities.
  • Obsolete equipment in Media and Music Departments.
  • Poor state of Infrastructure in the sister Churches.
  • Refusal of members to serve in Committees.
  • Non-compliance of Fellowships and Associations to Treasury Single Account as directed by the National Conference.

CONCLUSION:

2021 is our year of Exceeding Progress. The challenges may be enormous but with faith in God, we willconsolidate on the gains made so far and exceed our expectations.

I must thank all of us for the support we have enjoyed so far. We look forward to more support from you in the years ahead.

Thank you!
