STATEMENT

Evangelizing the lost for their total transformation, spirit, soul and body, developing them into leaders.

Victor Okodogbe has been with Church of God Mission International since 1979.

Under the guidance of Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa and his wife Bishop Margaret Idahosa, Victor was baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost in 1982 under the ministration of Reverend Samuel Enjega at Auchi – COGM. Since that time, Victor has been actively involved in the church as he served as choir leader, youth president and in 1988 lead the youth Christian body in schools that stopped the oppression of Christian fellowships by Islamic groups. He was involved in church planting in Ishan North East, Uromi, Edo state and his zeal to know God and to do the work of God increased significantly.

In 1994, Victor moved to Lagos where God opened his eyes to a very special individual named Mary Queen, a woman of God and prayer warrior. They had a traditional marriage in 1998 in Nigeria and married again in October 2003 in New York. In 1998, Victor was favored to work for the Nigerian government foreign affairs by Ambassador Olisemeka and came to the United States, where the Lord has used him and his wife to minister and preach in different places.

Victor served as the praise and worship leader in the Assembly of God church under Pastor Herry Bello. He and his wife preached and conducted revivals for Azusa Street Ministry under Pastor Wayne Woods. Later, Victor and Mary Queen worked with Pastor Michael Oluwafemi at Redeemed Christian Church of God where they served to the glory of God. As a result of prophetic word spoken to Victor 23 years ago, in November 2005 he was ordained along with his wife, Mary Queen to carry on the might work that he witnessed through the powerful and anointed ministry of Papa (Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa).

WHAT WE BELIEVE?

We believe that the holy bible in its entirety is the inspired word of God and only infallible rule of faith; we hold the word of God to be the only authority in all matters and hold to the fact that no doctrine can be true if it does not find a place in God’s word the bible. 2Timothy 3:16 more >>
