CCC meets for yearly pilgrimage in Imeko
Members of the Celestial Church of Christ (CCC) will meet again this year for the yearly pilgrimage, to celebrate Christmas and also honour the founder of the church, Prophet S.B.J. Oshoffa, who was buried in town.
According to the Most Superior Evangelist, J.D. Nunayon, this year’s pilgrimage is going to be better than the previous ones, adding that the church is moving from the building of a basilica to the establishment of a university, Celestial International University, at Imeko.
The Secretary, Planning and Implementation Committee, Celestial International University, Special Venerable Most Senior Evangelist Abraham Abiodun Taiwo, disclosed that plans for the university have been in the pipeline for a while, disclosing that six consultants, three geologists, and three university master planners have visited the site.
Professor Bola A. Akinterinwa, a Superior Evangelist of the church, disclosed that the unity of purpose of the church remains sacrosanct, saying the yearly pilgrimage of members simply means that those who had established different parishes on their own are still operating on the basis of the same unity of purpose.
“For instance, they have not changed their mode of worship. They have not changed their styles. They have not changed the tenets, doctrines, salutations, logo, among others. They have actually been operating within the CCC rules as given by the founder. So, the people may be divided, but the church is not,” he said.
