The concert featured gospel artists like Solomon Lange, Sesan Sax, Omenesa Oruma and other artists in Abuja.
Emmanuel Ibiwoye, Resident Pastor of the Church said that it was an event to set a conducive atmosphere for God to dwell in.
“If we must get God down to meet our respective needs, we must create an atmosphere conducive for Him to inhabit and dwell in.
“In the midst of praises, God does wonders and everybody needs God, but creating that environment is where the challenge lies.
“It is a forum to help people have that kind of atmosphere to encounter God and their miracle,” Ibiwoye said.
The Pastor added that the concert was geared toward reaching out to souls both believers, non-believers alike to enable them become conscious of God’s goodness at all times.
“People like dancing, praises, singing which is why the concert was organised in the church as an avenue to reach out to the community and the nation at large.’’
Also speaking at the concert, Mr Wale Arogundade, the Pastor-in-Charge of the Church choir said that the event would encourage people to be established in the house of God.
“In the presence of God, there is fullness of joy, people are happy here to be established in the house of God,” Arogundade said.
The Choir Coordinator, Mr Olusanjo Moritinwo, observed that God’s presence before, during and after the country’s general election necessitated returning praises to Him.
He said that the theme was a broad idea that covered the church and the entire nation.
“We thought we needed to come together to appreciate God as a church for what He did during the elections because His presence was involved.
“It was not ordinary considering that God’s hand was mighty on the nation toward the free, fair and violence free elections,” he said.
He said that the musical concert would create a time of fellowship among God’s people and thereafter, people would be blessed and souls won to the kingdom of God.
Mr Solomon Lange, a gospel artist at the event said that musical concerts complement the normal preaching of the word of God in religious organisations.
Lange said: “There is a place for music to reach out to souls and there is also the place of the word of God.’’
According to him, passion is the first thing that should cause one to do anything in life before involving it as business.
