Christmas Eve with Pastor Chris
Dressed in white, the ministry and the entire audience with their festive anticipation were beamed into millions of homes on all the continents around the world, where everybody got a taste of this holy Christmas magic. The beautiful holiday tradition that celebrates the birth of Christ once again brought thousands of soul-winning attendees to the legendary Loveworld Convocation Arena where they rejoiced in song.
Christmas is such a wonderful time of year! It’s the special season dedicated to the celebration of the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His message, and purpose for which He came to us.
This festive and joyful time of year is here already and the excitement can definitely be felt in the air. One of the most attractive and beautiful celebrations of the holiday is the Global Christmas Eve Service with Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. Pastor Chris, President and founder of the Believers’ Loveworld Inc., also known as Christ Embassy hosts this extraordinary gathering. It is a cherished opportunity for all to spend Christmas Eve with friends, family, and loved ones in an atmosphere of joy, carolling with chiming bells and Christmas lights.
This event was certainly one to be remembered, the atmosphere of blessings included melodious Christmas renditions by Pastor Chris himself and the peak was when Pastor Chris explained the significance of the 25th of December.
It’s a moment of ideal conviction of purpose, highlighting the mission and person that was Jesus Christ, whose birth the world celebrates. The global audience enjoyed that opportunity to experience the man of God, Pastor Chris minister especially to them.
The opening messages from the esteemed Pastors welcomed the audience to the Christmas Eve Service with Our Man of God, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome in the year 2020, the ‘Year of Perfection’. Celebrating Jesus at Christmas time, that very special season of the year, we get to reflect on that blessed gift from God to the whole world. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”. (John 3:16)
Joy to the world, the Lord has come, He came 2000 years ago and now He’s coming again, but this time what He is coming first for His Church, and afterwards for the judgement, judgement on those who refused to accept His sublime gift of salvation, paid for with His own blood. That should not be any of you, if somehow you haven’t yet received the Lord Jesus Christ, now is the time to do it, with the special Christmas Service with Pastor Chris, you’ll come into the glorious, special family of God. Pastor Saki went on to lead the congregation in the LoveWorld anthem.
Pastor Chris welcomed the audience with his highly anticipated message. “In heaven, they’re not quite as excited about the birth of Jesus like we are here on earth…” Pastor Chris stated. “Because a Saviour is born and there is joy to the world, but December the 25th is not a celebration day in heaven; the celebration day in heaven is when Jesus is born in the heart of a man. Every time Jesus is born in somebody’s heart, the angels rejoice. That is what brings joy to heaven and joy to God, our celebration is about the one that makes that joy possible and makes it possible that God should live in a human heart.”

New Year’s Eve Service with Pastor Chris
On New Year’s Eve, out of the 30 nominees, the Future African Leaders Foundation (FALF) will ultimately whittle down to 10 lucky recipients. Though incredibly challenging, the final 10 FALF winners will all be notable contenders who showed outstanding leadership skills, passion and initiative.
There are many wonderful ways to celebrate the New Year. It’s a time of celebration and spiritual uplifting, where families come together to feel closer to the Lord. But New Years is not only about gift-giving and good food, the spiritual essence of the day is of far more importance than any other aspect.
The New Year is when we stop for a moment and reflect on the past and look forward to the future. It’s an opportunity to repent the sins we have committed and place a vow to do better in the following year. It’s a time to pause the normal routine of our lives and connect once more to the values of Christ Pastor Chris Oyakhilome instils in us when preaching. It is also the time when The Loveworld president announces what the year 2021 will be, as we bid farewell to 2020 the ‘Year of perfection’. In his address, he will reveal the message behind the new theme and explain the relevance thereof. Be sure not to miss this exciting revelation.
