On Isaiah Wealth Ministries (IWM) which is the owner of the facility, Apostle Agbi shared that IWM ‘is an apostolic ministry with the mandate to prepare the way for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. This ministry is working hard in motivating and preparing the individual believer to be involved in reaping the harvest of the last days. It runs several networks, programs and crusades backed with supernatural signs and wonders and the manifestation of the tangible glory of God.
The ministry is active in church planting through its Mission Assisted Project (MAP), which has seen souls saved and established in the faith in over a hundred churches planted in four continents of the world, operating under the umbrella of Gospel Pillars Ministry.’
The church organization is founded by Dr. Isaiah Macwealth. ‘He is a lover of Jesus, songwriter, author of over a hundred books, Senior Pastor of Gospel Pillars Intl. Churches, President of the Isaiah Wealth Ministries which is active in church planting in over ten nations, founder of OneSound Revival Fellowship, and convener of Senior Ministers Bible Conference (SMBC).
Called and recognized as a prophet to the nations, coupled with his great love for people, his heart carries the mandate of Christ, which is a display of the blend of the supernatural and philanthropy as we see written of Jesus in Acts 10:38.’
‘His philanthropic activities cuts across race, tribe and religion to deliver top-notch humanitarian services in different continents, especially in Nigeria where his newly established Empowerment Network (TEN) is fighting to eradicate poverty. The prophet also pioneered The Isaiah Wealth Initiative (TIWI) which currently operates fifteen NGOs catering for the needs of women, children, and less privileged in the society.’
Apostle Agbi was also able to share with Trek Africa Newspaper the giant strides which IWM has been making over the Years. ‘Every ministry has its vision. We can say that the vision given to our man of God is being pursued by God’s Grace. We return all the Glory to Him for the impact made. We came into this place as a tenant in March 2016. Later on in 2019, we were told that a bank has acquired the building so we had to leave and that’s how we began this project in 2021. It was an empty warehouse. By the Grace of God what you see today is the work of about 4 months.’
‘We have had great impact all around the world. Our man of God first came into this city in 2007 as an engineering graduate. Today you see thousands of worshippers worshipping here every Sunday. We also have churches planted in United States, South Africa, Ghana, Middle East etc. We have 15 NGOs that get support from us. We send books to about 15 prisons in this country.’
‘We currently do ministration in English but in our church planting efforts, we use various languages. We believe that language should not separate us. One of the major breakthroughs we have had is through our devotional which has several languages. When you click on the app, you can read in various languages’, Apostle Agbi told Trek Africa Newspaper.
