The Holy Flock of Christ
is a Christian Organization established for the sole purpose of propagating the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ by means of exemplary life and precepts, services, open-air services, revival meetings, sacred songs, musical instruments and spiritual exercises consistent with God’s law and ordinances.
The Holy Flock of Christ was established on Pentecost Sunday, May 15th 1932 in Lagos, Nigeria through a servant of God, Major Abiodun Babatunde Lawrence. It was an offshoot of the spiritual awakening and resurgence of “praying power” that was sweeping the south western part of Nigeria in the association of the “Aladuras” typified in the “Cherubim and Seraphim” movement.
The Holy Flock of Christ was established in the response to a commandment of God through the founder when he was commanded of God to form a church in which “Holiness” and the “Fear of the Lord” reigns supreme.
The Organization experiences a good period of growth in Nigeria until the Lord commanded another of his servant to establish a branch of the Holy Flock of Christ here in Philadelphia, U.S.A. This was fulfilled by the late Ven. Joseph P. Abiola when the Holy Flock of Christ was established in Philadelphia in August, 1980.
The Holy Flock of Christ is a very unique Christian Organization in which the Spirit of the Lord is moving. It is definitely believed that the following prophecies contained in the 28th verse of the second chapter of Joel are being fulfilled:
"I will pour out my SPIRIT on all flesh and your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions" (Joel 2:28)
And that it is the duty of every true believer and disciple of CHRIST to bear a personal witness to HIS Gospel and assist in the general evangelization of the world, the injunction being:
"Go ye into the world and preach the gospel to every creature..…. and these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils... they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." (Mark 16:15-18)
Every believer in GOD and in His Son JESUS CHRIST shall be eligible to become a member of this Flock. All new members should be prepared to obey the Ten Commandments of GOD as given in the 20th Chapter of Exodus, verses 2-17; and also the existing Constitution and Regulations, and Bylaws of the Flock, and those hereafter made.
Admission shall be free for:
“Freely ye have received, freely give.” (Matt 10:8)
