VISION

Our Vision for life and ministry is to make heaven and to influence as many as possible by our words, actions and lifestyle to also make heaven. We believe eternal life is not what we wait for. Having caught the vision of Heaven and of God by coming to faith in Jesus Christ we daily live the life of eternity now in our lives.

Our joy since we joined this diocese is that our personal vision in life and ministry meshes with the vision of the diocese and the Diocesan, The Rt.Rev. James Olusola Odedeji. Ph.D. “SAY”, where “ S” stands for, SPIRITUAL GROWTH;   “ A” for Aggressive evangelism and “Y” for youth empowerment.

Our prayers and intention is to run with this vision for as long as we are Divinely permitted to do so at Anglican Church of Ascension, Opebi and at Opebi Archdeaconry.
