I wouldn’t know why, but indeed it as pleased the lord be bless Africa Countries with great men with Passion for God, the distingushing factor between been religious like other nation is that, we aren’t religious here, we are spiritual, for God himself is a Spirit, and they that mus worship him, seek him, pray to him, serve him and experience his reality must do so in the spirit.
This is the story of a man of God with such a difference, he is energetic, he is great, successful and bless both in Life ad Godliness.
God as delighted to favor him on every side, but yet, his sincerity and focus as never ever been distracted for just one.
Pastor William Folorunsho Kumuyi is a well known Evangelist Globally!
He is a down to earth man, yet a Godliness teacher of the word and will of God, he is so multi-gifted with the abilities of the spirit of God, but this as never ever change his standard in terms of his teachings and calling.
The Growth of Deeper Life Christian Bible Church i amazing, it is such that it can only be God!
He doesn’t preach about Miracles, Signs and Wonders, they actually follow him in fulfillment of the word of God.
He is a deep teacher of the word of God with a great sense of clarity and sincerity, he basically focus on Holiness and Righteousness.
I believe it is because of our deteriorating world that God gave him the assignment to go and raise an healthy body of Christ and bring standard to our dying world.
The man God moved to found the Deeper Christian Life Ministry (Deeper Life Bible Church) in 1973 has confounded popular thinking about a so-called diminishing power in old age. As we mark his 75th birthday on June 6, 2016, he will be preoccupied with the Church’s main event every Monday.
He faces a large congregation of the faithful every Monday evening. Pastor Kumuyi will be on duty today again as he has always been every Monday, since that Monday on August 1973. He will be on his feet for close to one and a half hours opening the pages of the Bible to present the truth about the love of God for man.
These days, the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life has taken up more laborious work. He has become part of the Sunday evening House Caring Fellowship with a revival and miracle sermon which he delivers. The session sees him undertake a circuit tour of different locations in Lagos. Every Saturday, he preaches to the Church’s workforce, dropping nuggets of Bible truth to prepare them for worship service the following day.
In 2015, Pastor Kumuyi undertook a brawny 18-day city wide crusade with the Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) partnering Deeper Life for the programme. If you analyse his sermons in the past six months or so you would notice a literary style that would challenge even the masters of prose and poetry.
For Pastor Kumuyi, the mode of presenting such a message is not less important than the content. At the end of the day, a Kumuyi treatise turns out to be a massive structure resting on a tripod with more three-legged contraptions inside.
Correctly interpreting Leviticus 6:13, Pastor Kumuyi has remained the fire that must retain its brightness and burning power to the end. It is the reason he has disowned the world and its enticements and thrown in his lot with the Heaven promised by Jesus Christ. It is the reason the Bible with its doctrines of Christ-like holiness, humility and servanthood is his only treasured property, not money, material prosperity or such other transient worldly possessions.
His Lord does not fail Him.
His Lord takes care of his soul and body.
He watches over him so he would not lack or fall into error.
Our world is character-poor and corrupt for its repudiation of these values.
Kumuyi never fails to warn his Church-men and others who listen to him of the dangers consequent upon neglecting these mores or scruples of integrity.
He would tell his congregation that as a born-again child of God you must not steal government money or your neighbour’s. You must not write down8 a.m. as the time of reporting for work if you reported at 9 a.m. You must not be numbered among those ganging up against the law of the land.
You must not jump the queue at a bus-stop or at a bank. You must not seek to harm you neighbour.
Indeed, some have held the view that for President Muhammadu Buhari’s war on corruption and indiscipline to gain some new traction, government should send public office holders to the Monday Bible session of the Deeper Life Bible Church.
William Folorunsho Kumuyi was born on Friday June 6, 1941 at Erin-Ijesha, a few kilometers from Ilesha in Osun State of Nigeria. He went to Mayflower School, Ikenne, Ogun State.
He became born-again there on April 5, 1964 at age 23. He would then go on to the University of Ibadan to obtain a first class degree in Mathematics. After a post-graduate course in Education at the University of Lagos, Kumuyi taught Mathematics there.
The Flat 2 apartment the institution gave him was the starting platform of the Deeper Life Christian Ministry.
The Life and Ministry of W.F Kumuyi, like we have in the life of John Knot, Alexander Dowel, John Wesley and others as proven that indeed Revival is the transformation agenda that our world needs, when the world is turning against their creator and few people among these great God-less generation still choose to seek after God with the whole of their heart and everything, they will be the one to change and transform the world to goodness.
The Gospel of Christ changes the whole make-up of the world.
Pastor Kumuyi grew Deeper Life into a 50,000 attending membership coming to hear him teach the word of God, without a flier or any invitation whatsoever!
This is indeed a revival, that he as been privilege to lead in our time, nation and generation.
