God has given His servant John Essien a divine mandate to fulfil God’s special grace By; comforting the broken hearted, proclaiming the captives free, to tell those who mourn that favor has come, to bring souls into their original identity, to speak the manifestation of the power of the Holy Ghost and to extend Gods healing power to terminate oppression and sickness.
"The Church of Christ is ordained for continuous and unending growth. As it is written, "I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it", that is, the gates of hell shall not be to stop it from advancing / growing until the end of time. —Matt. 16:18 / Prov. 4:18.

Raise a generation with integrity who will have dominion over the earth.
