Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power... Rev 4:11

About Us

...and Peace on Earth to Men of Goodwill!


There is nothing spiritual that is an accident or coincidence. Every spiritual event or happening has been designed and planned by God Almighty before it takes place. Many names given by men have meanings or connections to what the individual has in mind. People give heroic titles or names for so many reasons. Parents even name their children either for personal reasons, eventful reasons or even for wishful reasons, in other words, people give names wishing that their children would be like the former bearers of the names, or because of the events that take place during the child's birth or to tell their ordeal or experiences.

Biblically many names were given to God by men because of the awesomeness of the wonder He performed. For example; God is called the God that answereth by fire because of the great way He rose to accept the sacrifice of Elijah with fire on mount Camel to the honour of his servant Elijah and to the shame of the prophets of Baal (1 Kings 18:36-39) If then human beings can be so particulate when giving names then the Almighty our perfect God cannot give names any how or casually. God gives names because of the mission He intends to accomplish on earth. For example the names He gave to Abram (Abraham), Sarai (Sarah) (Genesis 17:4-7, 15-17), Hosea's children (Hosea 1: 4-11), John the Baptist (Luke 1: 13-17). But the most significant example was the name He gave to his beloved son Jesus Christ. God wanted to portray his son as a God that came down in the likeness of man to stay and live with man and also to accomplish the mission of salvation. Therefore He gave him the names, Emmanuel (God with us) and Jesus Christ (The Savior) (Luke 1:20-23). Living Christ Mission the pride and bride of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ which he bought with His blood (Acts 20:28) was named not by any man but God Himself.

The name Living Christ Mission was revealed and given to the church by God because of the mission He the Almighty God intends to use this universal church to accomplish on earth. The name LIVING CHRIST MISSION is the component of 3 spiritually connected names which are;

  1. God the Father
  2. God the Son
  3. God the Holy Spirit

Making up the TRINITY. Hence Trinity is the Origin of the name Living Christ Mission. Its connotative meanings and spiritual connections prove that Living Christ Mission is not just a unique church but a chosen church. Its doctrines and way of worship are centered on the word of God. Its constitution is the Holy Bible and the teachings are from God The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In other words Living Christ Mission is not just a church but a family that shields all children of God both members and non members, who have the kingdom of God at heart and strongly desire to make heaven. That is why Living Christ Mission cannot preach church, wealth, prosperity, but our believe is in the word of God which says "seek ye first his kingdom and his righteousness and all things shall yours as well" (Matthew 6:33). Prosperity and good things of life are found in God with 3 conditions and focus of the church, Salvation, Holiness and Righteousness and when wealth is from God it makes one rich and no sorrow is added to it. The name, Living Christ Mission was given to the Church/Ministry founded by Jehovah, The Most High God in 1983.

It was the Living God who gave it this name through His Son Jesus Christ. Before that day many names were suggested by people including members and non members of the church. Out of more than fifty (50) names that were suggested some of them were Temple of the Living Christ Mission, Temple of the Living Christ, Ekpere Hezekiah (i.e. Hezekiah's Prayers Mission), Church Hezekiah, Christ's Church, Living Christ Church, Church of the Living Christ, The Living Mission, Living Christ Mission etc. Majority of members including Trustees chose “Temple of the Living Christ Mission” one lecturer, a Mathematician, Late Dr. Nwamkpa from Nkwerre, Imo State was among those who chose Living Christ Mission and when I asked him why he said that, he answered that the abbreviation is simple LCM and from what he had seen it would be a universal church which would cut across all DENOMINATIONS including suiting every true Christian. In 1985 the trustees registered the church with the Federal Government of Nigeria with the name Temple of Living Christ Mission.

One Wednesday, in October 1985, before my Birthday/Convention when Christ and the four Holy Arch Angels came to visit me in my room at Inland Girls' Secondary School, Onitsha, I showed them the certificate with great joy. Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ told me to bring all the names people suggested when I brought them; He, with the four Holy Arch Angels looked at the names and He chose Living Christ Mission, and told me to re-register the church with the name “Living Christ Mission” (LCM). It was on another occasion when He visited me with only two Holy Arch Angels, Michael and Gabriel that He told me why He chose Living Christ Mission and its meaning.


1. SPIRITUAL MEANING/INTERPRETATION Living Christ Mission represents the TRINITY. The First (1st) Being in the Trinity is God the Father, the Living God Almighty, the Second (2nd) Being in the Trinity is Christ, the Living Christ who is His Son and the Third (3rd) Being in the Trinity is the Holy Spirit who is the Messenger, who has a mission on earth. Let me use these Bible passages to prove that God the Father is number One (1), God the Son is number Two (2) and God the Holy Spirit is number Three (3) and the three exist perfectly, co-operate, agree and love themselves. “Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever he does, that the Son does likewise. For the Father loves the Son, and shows him all that he himself is doing; and greater works than these will he show him, that you may marvel. "I can do nothing on my own authority; as I hear, I judge; and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me. "If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Counsellor, to be with you for ever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; you know him, for he dwells with you, and will be in you. But the Counsellor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. You heard me say to you, 'I go away, and I will come to you.' If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I go to the Father; for the Father is greater than I. but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us go hence. Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counsellor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convince the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: "I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you”. (John 5:19-20,30, 14:15-17,26,28,31, 16:7-8,12-15). Honestly, the Most High God is wise and knows all things. For example: a. If it was called Christ Living Mission, Christ would then be the 1st in the Trinity. God 2nd and Holy Spirit 3rd. b. If it was called Mission of the Living Christ, then Holy Spirit would be the 1st, God, 2nd and Christ 3rd. c. If it was called Living Mission of Christ, then God is 1st, Holy Spirit 2nd and Christ 3rd. Looking at the three (3) points above that is a, b and c, it is clear they do not represent the TRINITY correctly, only Living Christ Mission represents it accurately, hence, the Living Christ Mission is the name of this MUSTARD SEED which has now over grown beyond every imagination and human expectation to become a Mighty Church/Ministry. THE NUMBER “THREE” (3) Living Christ Mission is three words hence it concentrates on three most important things: Salvation, Holiness and Righteousness. Living Christ Mission is nineteen (19) letters. 1. God is three (3) letters 2a. TRINITY which is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit is made up of three (3) words. 2b. There are three (3) witnesses, the Spirit, the Water and the Blood and these three agree. “This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not with the water only but with the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the witness, because the Spirit is the truth. There are three witnesses, the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree”. (1 John 5:6-8) 3.

Living Christ Mission (LCM) is made up of three (3) words 4a. The flag of Living Christ Mission is made up of three (3) colours:

  • blue,
  • white
  • and red.

b. The three (3) main light created by God in the Bible are Sun, Moon and Stars “Thine is the day, thine also the night; thou hast established the luminaries and the sun. Thou hast fixed all the bounds of the earth; thou hast made summer and winter”. Genesis 16:16 (Genesis 16:14-16, Psalms 74:16,17) 5a. “OBI” that is my name is made up of three (3) letters b. Three (3) things needed for a seed to germinate (grow) are Sun (warmth), Air and Water. 6. Christ is “the Way, the Truth and the Life” three (3) words. “Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me”. (John 14:6) 7. Christ is the Light, the Truth and the Word “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ”. (John 1:5, 14, 17). 8. Christ is the Grace, Resurrection and the Life “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father. Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,” (John 1:14, 11:25).

Although there are many other examples I will stop at eight (8) because the words Emmanuel, God with us, Hezekiah, Holiness, Paradise etc are each of eight (8) letters. The above points about the NUMBER THREE shows that it is God HIMSELF who organised an important meeting in Heaven and they all decided and agreed that the name of the extension of His fellowship, church in Heaven should be and must be called Living Christ Mission. It is now clear to all why this church is unique (special) and why it will live forever by Jehovah's power and authority through Christ our Lord and Saviour, the only Son of God. MATHEMATICAL INTERPRETATION OF LIVING CHRIST MISSION (LCM). In Mathematics, L C M means “Lowest Common Multiple” which is the smallest number, two (2) or more numbers can divide without any remainder. For example, 12, 24, 48, 60 are multiples of 2, 3, 4 and 6, but the lowest multiple is 12, therefore the lowest common multiple (LCM) is 12 and not 24, 48 or 60. This fact shows how Living Christ Mission cuts across all denominations, hence, it is non denominational but UNIVERSAL. It accommodates all true children of God.

Any person who is truly born again, any rational human being with good conscience/morals will fit in including being very comfortable in it. Also in it (LCM) there is no levy therefore the rich, the poor, the less privileged, the common man etc could become members and worship their God very freely, happily and comfortably. No of letters in words. Living Christ Mission M/strong>is made up of nineteen (19) letters that is:

  • a. Living (6) + Christ (6) + Mission (7) =19
  • b. Almighty (8) + Jesus Christ (11) = 19
  • c. Hezekiah (8) + Jesus Christ (11) =19
  • d. Emmanuel (8) + Jesus Christ (11) = 19
  • e. God with us (8) + Jesus Christ (11) = 19 Note that Holiness is also made up of eight (8) letters.
  • f. Michael (7) + Living Christ (12) = 19
  • g. 7 representing 7 spirits of God, Gabriel, Raphael each is 7 letters + Living Christ (12) =19
  • h. Uriel (5) + Almighty (8) + Christ (6) = 19
  • i. Righteousness (13) + Christ (6) = 19
  • j. Daddy Hezekiah (13) + Christ (6) = 19
  • k. Mighty Hezekiah (14) + Jesus (5) = 19
  • l. Jehovah (7) + (12) representing 12 tribes of Israel, 12 months in the year, 12 apostles etc = 19
  • m. Righteous God (12) + Michael (7) = 19
  • n. Our Saviour (10) + Salvation (9) = 19

Although there are many more examples but I will stop at the letter “N” because in the Alphabet A B C D … Z, the letters from A to N are 19 in number. Looking at the figures above and the ones you can form, it is clear that the name, “LCM” was chosen by God and it is from God and not man, blood or according to the will of man. God is indeed a Master Planner. For example the “Title, Twenty Four Elders of Heaven is Twenty Four (24) letters. Also Four Living Creatures is Nineteen (19) letters. Paradise is 8 letters while kingdom of heaven is 15 letters and all mentioned above are related to LIVING CHRIST MISSION.

BIOLOGICAL INTERPRETATION In Biology any LIVING thing must grow, react to stimuli and excretes. Living Christ Mission as a church grows (develops), reacts to stimuli, events etc, excretes or sheds its leaves in form of giving suspension to its unrepentant and lawless so called members. Even in some extreme wickedness and stubbornness of the lawless, they are expelled from the church. “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every word may be confirmed by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them." “I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with immoral men; not at all meaning the immoral of this world, or the greedy and robbers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But rather I wrote to you not to associate with any one who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or robber--not even to eat with such a one. For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. "Drive out the wicked person from among you."Matthew 18:15-20, 1 Corinthians 5:9-13 Mortal living things die but Living Christ Mission is not mortal or carnal but spiritual. This means that (LCM) will never die. God says so in His word “And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it”. Matthew 16:18. Living Christ Mission is DIVINE and because God is the founder, foundation and leader of it, God has already exalted it and will exalt and bless it more in order to prove to the whole world that He owns it and with Him (God) everything is possible.


  • 1. BLUE: This shows LOVE OF GOD.
  • 2. WHITE: This shows and depicts PURITY, Cleanliness, Holiness, and Righteousness.
  • 3. RED: This shows Salvation, through the death of Christ and shedding of His blood.

It also shows power/authority of God. It also depicts and shows “danger” for those who reject the Gift of God, Jesus Christ and Salvation. In other words, Blue : Love to teach and love man (i.e. Human beings) White: Purity to teach and purity man and Red: Salvation to teach and save man Therefore Blue + White + Red = Christ Mission (LCM). Although I have explained all the points above and it is not my intention to make this TOPIC very long, but because of its importance and in the interest of children or those who may not understand VOLUME 1 very well let me make it more simple in VOLUME 2 THE SPIRITUAL MEANING OF THE NAME LIVING CHRIST MISSION.

LIVING; in the order of the Trinity the first being is the Almighty God the father who is the Living God represented by Living in the name Living Christ Mission and also placed as the first Being recognized. This confirms that God is the Origin, owner, Lord, founder and leader of the church Living Christ Mission. 'Living' in the name Living Christ Mission also signifies that though many gods exist and it is obvious that some so called servant/worshippers of God use the church as a camouflage to cover up some of their diabolic practices and worship of dead gods, as far as Living Christ Mission is concerned, it is a church where the only true God is worshiped and the God we serve is the Living God, the Creator of the whole universe, the sovereign God and God of The Holy Bible “For although there may be so called gods in heaven or on earth as indeed there are many "gods" and many "lords" Yet for us there is one God, the Father from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we exist" (1 Corinthians 8:5 and 6) Secondly, when anything is referred to as LIVING it has certain qualities or characteristics that prove that it has life in it. They are;

    • Respiration or breathing and life span
    • Growth, development and reproduction
    • Nutrition
    • Irritability or sensitivity (that is the ability to respond to stimuli)
    • Excretion

In terms of respiration, growth, development, reproduction and life span: man lives with the breath of God then what of God himself. The living God is the life and the air that the church breathes and since God lives forever and remains the life of the church, Living Christ Mission, has never, will never and can never die or stop existing, progressing, growing, developing and reproducing. It has always been growing from strength to strength because according to the bible in (Matthew 16:18) "And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church and the powers of death or the gates of hell will not prevail against it". That is why anybody can come to Living Christ Mission, occupy any position they want to occupy once you do not have any good relationship with God, you will one day leave the church and then you will understand how unworthy and that you are just occupying a space. This was what happened to Judas Iscariot (Acts 2:16-20).

When it comes to nutrition which is the ability of living organisms to feed to enable them live and carry out life processes, in Living Christ Mission the flock of God are fed with the undiluted word of God (that is, the way it is) through which the Holy Spirit carries out His cleansing and sanctification. He works in various ways in the lives of people giving them salvation and spiritual gifts. The Holy Spirit Himself is the teacher and the truth about God and His Spiritual worship are revealed through His word and the Holy Spirit. Irritability and sensitivity which is the ability of living organisms to respond to stimuli. The church does not and cannot tolerate any evil that will affect the body of Christ. Checks and balances with the word of God are used to checkmate the members and any kind of misconduct or misbehavior is called to order no matter who is involved. Punishments like suspensions, cautioning, and relief of duties are used after which repentant souls are accepted again and restored.

Excretion: when someone is called to order and they do not accept corrections even after the church has handled the case, such a person according to the bible can be suspended for some days, weeks or months and in serious matters could be expelled from the church, the body of Christ (Matthew 18:15-17) (i.e. "excreted"). This normally serves as a medium to excrete unscrupulous miscreants and enemies of God from the family of God. CHRIST: the next Being in the line or order of the trinity is Jesus Christ the Saviour. He is the middle Being in the trinity and that is His position in the name "Living Christ Mission". After the head the next thing is the body and according to the Bible we are the body of Christ. While Christ is the head and bridegroom which He died for and bought with His BLOOD. The Bible says "Take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God which He obtained with the blood of his own son" (Acts 20:28), "For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, His body and is Himself its S a v i o u r " ( E p h e s i a n s 5 : 2 3 ) .

A n y t h i n g a t t h e c e n t r e s e r v e s as a connection or middle man. So Christ is at the centre of the Trinity connecting us to God the Father. He goes to the Father on our behalf and manifests Himself and His works through the Holy Spirit in our midst, thus He said to His Apostles in John 14:18-20 “I will not leave you desolate, I will come to you. Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but you will see me; because I live, you live also” Christ manifests His promise through the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in the church. He conducts the affairs of Living Christ Mission through His Oracle God the Holy Spirit and uses Him to reach out to many souls in different parts of the world, because He cares for his own.

MISSION: Mission represents the work of the Holy Spirit, the promise of the Father which Christ also reassured us of in the Bible where it says "And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another counselor, to be with you forever, even the spirit of truth whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; you know him for he dwells with you, and will be in you" (John14:16-17) "Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the counsellor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. And when He comes, he will convince the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: (John 16:7-8). the promise of the Father Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterwards, that I will pour out my spirit on all flesh, your sons and your daughters shall prophecy, your old men shall dream, dreams and your young men shall see visions” the above passages tell us that the mission of the Holy Spirit encourages division of labour where everyone is valued and accommodated to work in unity towards one common goal, building the body of Christ which is the church and edifying one another to grow spiritually. The mission of the Holy Spirit does not aim at making everyone speak in tongues, or prophecy, or dream dreams rather it encourages everyone to use their God given talents or gifts to build the body of Christ the church, in return we edify ourselves. We are sanctified, purified and refined to be fit for the kingdom of God. This is the primary assignment of the Holy Spirit to prepare us, reveal the truth about God to us, teach us and remind us of the teachings of God Almighty.

LIVING CHRIST MISSION: In a nutshell those components that make up the name Living Christ Mission is the representation of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit on earth. Significantly God has given these 3 gifts to the world since creation out of love for man whom He created in His own image (Genesis 1: 26, 27), yet the world does not know him, but to them who received him, who also believe in him, He gave the power to become children of God. Who were born not of the will of man, but of God (John 1:12-13). Living Christ Mission is the completion of the 3 significant gifts God gave to man and God's effort on man to reconcile man to himself, after His relationship with man was breached in the Garden of Eden.

Firstly in the beginning of creation when the earth was without form and filled with darkness God said "Let there be light" and instantly there was light (Genesis 1:3). The Living God Himself is the light and He gave His light to the world to separate the works of darkness and made the works of light optional for man to tread the part he chooses, whether light or darkness. He has the authority to make every being worship Him as the Almighty yet He did not and does not use it.

Secondly on a second thought to give man salvation and reconcile man to Himself, God gave His only begotten Son out of love to man, for Him to die that man might live. This gift was the second gift and He is Jesus Christ.

Thirdly, when Jesus Christ has accomplished His mission He still felt pity and love for man, therefore He saw the necessity of a counsellor and teacher to remind us of God's love and salvation to man, His sacrifice, so He gave us the Holy Spirit as the fulfillment of God's promise to man, this time this Spirit will remain with us forever and bear witness of the reality of God and the salvation which He gave us through His Son Jesus Christ. In other words Living Christ Mission is like an Emblem that stands as the identity of The Trinity placed at the centre of the world to be a light to those in darkness, hope to the hopeless, way to the lost, etc. Anyone who can faithfully serve the Living God no matter where they come from; East, West, North or South they will be saved. THE FLAG OF LIVING CHRIST MISSION with the three primary colours; BLUE, WHITE AND RED.

They are 3 reasons that summarize the reasons why God has given the world these 3 gifts;

    • LOVE which is represented by the colour BLUE
    • PURITY to purify man represented by the colour WHITE
    • SALVATION to save man and give him new life RED (the life blood of Christ) BLUE + WHITE + RED = LCM FLAG, indeed God is a master planner. Mathematically the initial "LCM" represents Lowest Common Multiples which explain more about the universality of LCM.

Living Christ Mission is simply a big family that can accommodate the great and small, the rich and poor, the mighty and strong as well as the weak. In addition to its mathematical interpretation, the lowest common multiple of 2,3,4,6 is 12 "Living Christ" is made up of 12 letters which stands for the 12 tribes of Israel the chosen race of God. This tribe was born out of the covenant God had with Abraham and by Him all families of the earth are blessed. Today Living Christ Mission is revolving around this same favour from God as the chosen family through which many families are blessed and many souls captured and saved, because with the number 3 being identified with most important things in the church it proves that the trinity has come down amongst man to accomplish their final assignment on earth to save men. CONCLUSION "Behold the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them and they shall be his people and God himself will be with them" "These words are trustworthy and true. And the Lord God of the spirits of the prophets has sent his Angel to show His servants what must soon take place. And behold I am coming soon""Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book" (Revelation 21:3, 22:6-7).
