The Lighted Church is the church arm of The Light of the World Outreach Ministries. It is a church of the living God that has its foundation on Jesus Christ the Way, the Truth and the Life. It is a church born out of a vision to see humanity completely free from all forms of enslavement and bondage and in the light of such total freedom also help to set others free. The vision for the Commission was delivered by God through the President and Founder, Rev Charles Ojei. He was ordained an Evangelist in 1992 and as Pastor of The Lighted Church on the 11th of December, 1999 and on the same date, The Lighted Church was born.
The church is duly registered under the umbrella of The Light of the World Outreach Ministries Inc. with the Corporate Affairs Commission.
The Church was founded with tri-fold intent of:
• Recruiting men for God’s kingdom from the enemy’s camp as Jesus did recommend. ( Luke 19:10);
• Preaching the word of truth to open the eyes of God’s people to the reality of the finished work of Calvary and God’s perfect will for their lives ( Hosea 4:6); and
• Preparing the saints for the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (John 14:1-3);
MATTHEW 5: 14-16
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
