Clerics have stressed the need for Nigerians to live a consecrated life, which will further drive peace and harmony in the nation. They said living according to messages, as instilled in the Holy Bible is necessary, especially as the nation prepares for another four-year governance.

This call was made at the 2019 conference of the Glorious Freedom Assembly, held at the West Africa Theological Seminary (WATS) in Lagos with the theme: ‘Sanctification made plain’ and ‘Defending the gospel in a changing world.’

Speaking at the event, former chairman, ex- director of communication and development of the seminary, Pastor Olufemi Martins, explained that salvation is for all men and Nigeria will enjoy peace, if all men were to live sanctified life.


He said: “This programme is to bring about Godly living, where you become your brother’s keeper, express love that is present among all men in Christ. All saved believers will be enslaved to righteousness. Initially before salvation, all of us were enslaved by sins, but from the moment of salvation, we should be enslaved to righteousness.”

The Assembly director, Dr. Tosin Awolalu said the assembly is a reflection of the seminary’s founding vision to propagate holiness and revival.

He said: “Every year, we come up with themes that encourage believers to take on holiness, believing that holy people will make a right nation. Only righteousness exalts a nation. We can all work together to make Nigeria a better place.”

Also the founder of WATS, Dr. Gary S. Maxey said the seminary is the brain behind the assembly, set up to train men and women for holy living, to be a catalyst for awakening spiritual revival and to take the gospel to the unreached. The purpose therefore of the yearly event is in view of this and to defend the gospel in a changing world.
