He founded the Nigerian Diocese of Celestial Church of Christ in Makoko on 3rd March 1951,from where the church has spread to all parts of the world.

He was a member of the Board of Trustees of Ogun State University Educational Endowment Fund.

The total number of adherents whom Rev. S.B.J.Oshoffa has won for Jesus Christ through his doctrine of total spiritual and material liberation can well be estimated over ten million after only 37years ministry. In Nigeria alone, where this crowd pulling religious movement is the most solidly implanted,it boasts of at least seven million members.

In 1976 at Ijeshatedo Oluwaseyi Parish in Lagos,the Prophet Pastor Founder was invited to enlighten the Church members on the importance of the rite of purification of women. In the Celestial Church of Christ, women who are in the menstrual period can not enter the Church Compound until after eight days when they shall have performed a rite of purification.
Instead of preaching about this particular issue at stake the Holy Spirit directed Rev. S.B.J. Oshoffa and he spoke these memorable words:

“Some people are fearing, some others are thinking,while many more are saying that the Celestial Church of Christ will disintegrate after my departure. But,this is my answer for them-Jesus Christ Himself descended this Church from Heaven to save the world. And if I,Oshoffa dies,Our Lord Jesus Christ will remain still.,since He will never die. Then He will take charge of His own church. God Himself will appoint the Shepherd of His choice to lead the flock of the Celestial Church of Christ which will remain united.”

One and a half years later,that was in 1982,a certain man picked me up in a street in Ibadan. He told me his name was Evangelist Paul Maforikan of Celestial Church of Christ, Ijokodo.
Evangelist Paul Maforikan took me into his van.He preached the Gospel to me. He told me God was going to manifest Himself to me. He took me to his house,fed me ,changed my clothes and bought me new ones.
Two weeks later,he told me that the Founder of the Celestial Church of Christ was coming from Lagos to conduct a revival service at Mapo Hall.He assured me that ,if I believed and I agreed to follow them for the revival service, I would be healed.

I went to Mapo Hall for the revival service. I heard Rev. S.B.J. Oshoffa preaching. He preached that those at the revival service with problems or sickness would have them solved and they would be healed provided they believed in God. Rev. S.B.J. Oshoffa read what Jesus Christ said to His disciples from Matthew 28:18

I kept on doubting and laughing. Then the preacher asked everybody to shut his eyes. I had mine already closed so I felt unconcerned. Then he prayed.

All at once,I saw something like a sword of fire,dividing my eyes into two. The fire came down from the sky and descended to the ground. I could not see the end of it.I was stupefied.I could not move or shake my body.
After the three-minute prayer,Rev. S.B.J. Oshoffa said that if a blind man present at the revival service was unsealed,it meant he had no faith.

He ordered everyone to open his eyes. To my surprise, I opened my eyes and began to see. And that was how Rev SBJ Oshoffa healed me through the power of Jesus Christ after twelve good years of blindness.

  17. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
