Faith Miracle Centre is a wave making church in Abuja. It is a unique church because it is not your normal church. Forget the fact that services are held on Sundays as well as deliverance programmes on Fridays.
Faith Miracle Centre offers a unique spiritual atmosphere of peace and power as a result of the presence of God that permeates in all our programme explains the church. “Countless number of miracles in healing, deliverance and major breakthrough in careers and businesses are common occurrences in our services,” the church website further explains, “Our services are designed to impact your life positively towards the fulfilment of God’s glorious destiny. All aspects of our activities are focused at releasing God’s blessings upon your life.”
The razzmatazz that goes with the church would let you know there is more to it than meets the eye. Quite naturally, the owner of the church who doubles as its General Overseer, Pastor Faith Vedelago has a taste for the best, and so it is not abnormal to see that she comes in with a panache that makes you notice her anyday, anytime. She dresses to kill, her perfume as well as makeups stand out, there on the table. Before she enters through the back door to minister, her sanitisers, series of perfumes and air fresheners are there in case she does not find the air comfortable.
Opulence is not vanity to Faith Vedelago as designer stuffs are the only thing you see her wearing. And they surely sit well on her, from head to toe.
From her desk comes this message: “It is my pleasure to welcome you to the family of excellence where God has ordained to reach your desirous souls, to quench your thirsty soul and satisfy your longing according to His perfect will. I do believe that this is a very crucial time for your journey to the glorious destiny God has ordained for you.
You are Favoured.
We are Faith Miracle Centre International, the Kingdom of Excellence, A World-Wide Ministry founded by Pastor Faith Vedelago. The oil of excellence that is upon this commission will find expression in all aspects of your life.”
“I am persuaded that God ordered your steps into this place so that He can perfect the next work of His righteousness in your life by your encounter with the grace and anointing that is in this appointed place. We are witnesses of all kinds of amazing intervention in the lives of individuals that have come into this place. God is still at work confirming His word and performing the counsel of His messengers.” she wrote.
I am confident that your life will experience unprecedented breakthrough and advancement culminating in a testimony of all round rest for you as you settle down, eat and drink of the fatness of this house through the various services and activities which are well structured to meet your needs. As you take your place in this house you will discover that every chain of stagnation and mediocrity is broken and every satanic operation and limitation placed over your life will be lifted. The oil of excellence that is upon this commission will find expression in all aspects of your life. Every trace of shame and mediocrity will be erased from your life and the glory of God shall be seen upon you. Amen.
You are highly welcome.” wrote Pastor Vedelago.
Despite the fact that the church has been in existence for many years, the real members are very few in a congregation of close to two hundred who are always transported down from 3 parts of Abuja to the church. This is done dutifully during any programme.
Even the members of the church workforce and the choir members are all on special payroll. New singers are auditioned regularly and the ones you see today might not be there next week as they are replaced after every three months or less.
One thing you cannot take away from this pretty founder of the church is the fact that she spends money on bringing in celebrities and foreign speakers and guests to the church. From all corners of the world, she brings them in for special programmes and they surely pull the crowd.
Faith Vedelago runs the church in a peculiar way. Unlike in other churches, this one is run as a Charity. It does not really matter what you give as an offering here. The owner of the church is the one who has the money so you are there to join her in worship. But then, you cannot deny the fact that she does her things with style. She hardly comes in until when she is expected to minister. At times you would think she is just there to fulfill a normal ritual and not really a part of the whole church programme.
A first timer will be dazzled by the good music, the well-dressed choir members who wear high heeled shoes before they can minister in stylish robes.
Obviously, there is affluence in the church, around the founder and her mother who is a Bishop and who stands in to preach once in a while when her daughter is not available. Apart from them, and then maybe once in a blue moon when Senator Andy Uba comes in for a special programme, every other person knows each other. Faith Miracle Centre is surely a church with a difference.
