The Fountain Of Life Church
The Fountain of Life Church’s vision statement “To build the home, and thus the nation; and to equip the saints for life and ministry” Is one that is evident in the type of ministry Pastor Taiwo Odukoya runs.
Pastor Taiwo Odukoya
The church believes “We are called to assist believers to become rooted, grounded and established in the Word of God. “This we achieve by encouraging the saints to give God’s Word the first place in their lives. We are committed to raising leaders by building and equipping the saints to operate confidently in biblical principles. This way they are able to excel in all aspects of life and influence their own worlds positively.” Their mission statement is “We are called to assist believers to become rooted, grounded and established in the Word of God. This we achieve by encouraging the saints to give God’s Word the first place in their lives. We are committed to raising leaders by building and equipping the saints to operate confidently in biblical principles. This way they are able to excel in all aspects of life and influence their own worlds positively. We are called to proclaim the Lordship of Jesus Christ to all corners of the world byraising and providing support to missions. We are called to be a centre of refuge for the hopeless and underprivileged — the physically, emotionally and mentally abused. We are called to emphasize the importance of the three basic God-ordained institutions — the Family, the Church and the Government, for the benefit of all:” This is what they are called to do and they do it daily through the various ministries associated with the church, such as but not limited to “The Lord’s kitchen, Grace Springs Farms, Grace Springs Medical Center, Educational Support Programs and my personal favourite Grace Springs Rehabilitation Homes.Culled from their website: http://www.tfolc.org
“The Grace Springs Rehabilitation Home is a Non-Governmental Organization. We cater for street urchin and destitute to give them a “Hope and a Future”.The home took off in 2004 with 50 boys. Earlier in 2002 before the Grace Spring Rehabilitation Home fully began the rehabilitation campaign, Child Life Line Centre, Ibeshe, Ikorodu, run by Mrs. Marion was approached to accommodate 7 children picked up from Oshodi. The Grace Springs supported the centre with upkeep allowance every month.”
Pastor Odukoya leads by example and what I find fascinating about this church and it’s leader is that it is hard to find any negative press or publicity because though he leads a sizeable church, he is down to earth and approachable . There is no misappropriation of funds in this ministry.
