The Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Church is a Christian Ministry .
As the name connotes, it is a revival church inspired by the Holy Spirit to bring the knowledge of salvation to all the kings and their subjects, to the masters and their servants, to the rulers and them that are being ruled all over the world.
The birth of the church was in response to the divine call of God received by the founder Pastor Lazarus Muoka.
Who consequently brought together some brethren (in their hundreds) on the 23rd of December, 2002, at its first location No.16 Odunaike Street, Ilasamaja Area of Lagos, Nigeria, and declared to them the great calling of God upon his life.
Of course when God calls one for an assignment or mission, He will obviously impart in the person the concept or vision on which the calling will be anchored in. Thus, the three (3) fold vision upon which the calling of Pastor Lazarus Muoka is anchored are:-
- GRASS ROOT REVIVAL ALL OVER THE WORLD. (MARK 16 VS 15-17)
- REVIVAL OF THE APOSTOLIC CHRISTIAN EXPERIENCES AMONG THE BODY OF CHRIST.(1 PETER 2 VS 9 - 0)
- HEAVEN AT LAST. ( MATTHEW 6 VS 33 )
BASIC TENETS OF THIS CHURCH
The above vision in its entirety has been brought to bear all the scriptural doctrines of the Bible that would provide guidance and lead genuine believers into the kingdom of God at the end of this life. This vision reveals the hidden treasures of the Bible, even more elaborately. With its experiences of power as emphasized in the Bible in
1 Corinthians chapter 4 verse 20, “FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NOT IN WORD, BUT IN POWER.”
Hence, inexplicable but true and startling miracles are witnessed everyday in our fellowship. Both curable and incurable diseases such as, HIV, Cancer, Diabetes, etc. have been cured and testimonies abound from the mouths of those who have been liberated from demonic bondages.
However, it is imperative to note that, these visions do not lay emphasis on miracles and healings alone because miracles and healings are children’s bread from their Father, the Almighty God, who is in heaven. Rather, emphasis are laid on grass-root evangelism that would bring revival all over the world, turning those who are dead in sin into the righteousness of Christ. Also, reviving those who have lost the thirst for God and bringing them back to the knowledge of truth. Some of the doctrines of the church are baptism (by immersion), salvation, sanctification and Holy Ghost baptism. We believe in God-the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost relationship as one. Also, we believe in all the attributes of God such as love, charity, long-suffering, perseverance, mercy, forgiveness etc.
The understanding and emulation of these attributes of God would assist us in fashioning a better Christian conduct which will provoke those outside the Christendom to acknowledge the awesomeness of his existence and his great power to save sinners from all vices of sin.
GOD HAS CHARGED US TO TAKE THE WORLD BY SIGNS AND WONDERS.
The Lord's Chosen has been divinely endowed to awaken the conscience of human race towards the realization of this vital grace of God, which enables us to make heaven at last. John 14:1-3 says, Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. Matthew 6:33 said, But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
General Overseer, the Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries
PASTOR LAZARUS MUOKA
The only way the nation can be salvaged from it present predicament is through genuine repentance of individuals in the nation, said the General Overseer, The Lord's Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries, Pastor Lazarus Muoka.Speaking during a press conference preceding a three-day crusade, which began weekend, at the Lord's Chosen Secondary School, Mgbidi in Oru Local Government of Imo State, Muoka said Nigeria cannot be a progressive nation in any aspect without righteousness.
"No nation has ever progressed without the people in that nation abiding by the law, serving and fearing God," he said.Muoka therefore advised that as the nation begins another new year, Nigerians should turn to God and reverence Him in all their dealings, adding: "God as the master of all wisdom and knowledge says in the scripture that, 'seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all other things will be added unto you".
Muoka therefore stated that whatever Nigeria would want to achieve as a nation, the masses should seek first the kingdom of God and every other thing they need - be it security, peace, prosperity, unity and any other progress in life, would be given to them. He appealed, particularly to the Niger Delta youths to turn to God and begin to live right if they need Hisblessing and protection for the nation.
On the benefit of the ongoing crusade, tagged "Come and Behold the Goodness of God", which ends today, Muokasaid salvation, which is its main focus, is the greatest experience that individuals who make up a nation can have, which will bring about peace and economic development to a nation.
"By the time many people would have returned to the Lord, giving their lives to God and having the word of God inside them, this will affect every aspect of the national life", the cleric said. Muoka added: "When the people are saved and they begin to fear God and live right, there would be nothing like ethnic and political crises, kidnapping and rituals or armed robbery in the nation. Rather there would be peace, unity and security".
The Lord's Chosen General Overseer said the progress of the nation hinges on salvation, adding that it was for this reason that during this programme, God will touch the lives of the people and they would go out and become a blessing to the society.
He stressed that prayers would be said during the three-day programme. "We would be lifting the nation to the Lord in prayers and in this way, we believe that our prayers will go a long way in bringing peace, unity and security to the nation,"Muoka said.
