Months After TB Joshua’s Demise: First Sunday Service Holds At Synagogue

The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) held its first Sunday service on November 7, four months after the founder Prophet T.B. Joshua who died on June 5 was buried.

The church’s new leader Evelyn Joshua offered prayers of thanksgiving and forgiveness. A clip of the late Joshua, which is not time-bound, was played for the congregants. Joshua prayed thus: “Hear what God says: Those in darkness, in the name of Jesus – come out!”

A note posted on the church’s Facebook page read, “As the prayer continued, the Spirit of God worked wonders in the lives of the people, rescuing them from the kingdom of darkness and bringing them into the kingdom of His glorious light. Many received their healing and deliverance as the Holy Spirit flushed out everything that Satan had planted in their lives.”

Before praying with the congregants, Evelyn, Joshua’s widow, read Psalm 100:1-5, assuring congregants of God’s faithfulness throughout all generations and His enduring love. She then asked worshippers to give thanks to God for all that He has done in their lives.

The church had been closed since July 11 when a thanksgiving Sunday service was held to signal the end of the week-long funeral of Joshua.

Founder of the Christ Apostolic Church, Agbala Itura Prophet Samuel Abiara, among others, was at the thanksgiving service where he made a call for the church to stick together as one.

“I want to advise all members of Synagogue church to stick to the church, not to leave the church because of the death of the man of God because he is alive,” he said.

Abiara’s message did little to stop the in-fighting that would later befall the church and cause the delay in opening for worship.
