Salvation Ministries (Home of Success) was founded on divine vision and that is why it will continue to flourish and blossom and its impact shall have no end globally.
THE COMMISSION'S MANDATE
In 1995, God called His servant Pastor David Ibiyeomie and in a vision commissioned him with a divine mandate "TO ESTABLISH THE KINGDOM OF GOD HERE ON EARTH".
What does this mandate mean? This simply means to reflect and manifest heaven here on earth. This divine task left him with the responsibility of making people live heavenly life on the earth through the undiluted and insightful teaching of the word of God for which he is also backed up with the divine grace of God.
Living heavenly life on earth means: Manifesting the nature of God on earth. i.e. living in righteousness and holiness here on earth because there is no sin in heaven. Living in prosperity and good health here on earth because in heaven there is no poverty and sickness.
These have formed the boundaries of the teachings of the commission
HOW THE CHURCH STARTED
Just as every great empire today had a little beginning so also Salvation Ministries (Home of Success) had a little beginning.
The Servant of God, Pastor David ibiyeomie having completed his Bible school training at Word of Faith Bible Institute at 38 Raji Oba Street, Iyane Ipaja, Lagos by divine leading started a house fellowship with one family only at 1689B Buraimo Kenku Street, Victoria Island Lagos to sustain the fire i.e. anointing, being fresh from bible school. This fellowship was divinely instructed by God to be put in place and the servant of God undertook the assignment with passion and commitment, and God proved Himself faithfully through His manifestations.
God will always prove you faithful with the small thing before He commits the greater one into your hand. The servant of God was faithful to that little assignment and when the appointed time to start full church came, God instructed him to relocate to Port Harcourt, specifically G.R.A., Port Harcourt. Thus Salvation Ministries (Glorious Chapel) started on April 13th, 1997 at Plot 35 Birabi Street, G.R.A. Phase 1, Port Harcourt with a little over twenty (20) persons in attendance including himself and his wife.
Just as God is always true and faithful concerning His word. The word that “though thy beginning was small, yet they later end should greatly increase” (Job 8:7), is clearly manifesting as the church that started with a little over twenty persons is now thousand in membership. To God be the glory.
The church in July 1999, relocated from Plot 35 Birabi to Plot 17 Birabi Street, (the present place) in G.R.A Port Harcourt. As a result of ever surging crowd, the church which is now a mega church would soon relocate to her "NEW SITE" with a state of the Art Architectural Master piece Cathedral and hitech facilities, at Igwuruta, along International Airport Road.
The capacity of the cathedral is going to be amongst the largest in the world. Is God not faithful? He is indeed very faithful.
