The New Year Message from the desk of the General Overseer of the Gospel Faith Mission International (GOFAMINT), Pastor Dr Elijah O. Abina on January 1, 2023.
Announcing our National/International Programs, Anchor and Faith Declaration of the New Year
We thank the Lord for the year 2022. Despite the storms and the challenges, you and I are still standing. We thank God that the faithfulness of God prevailed. The pandemic continued to abate, and many economies recovered.
In 2022, there were many testimonies of God’s miraculous provision, escape, deliverances, healings, miracles etc. Also, there were numerous personal and corporate testimonies of Liberty at work. In many nations, regions, districts and areas, reports came in of God’s blessing with houses, cars, landed properties, marriages, births, promotions, conversions etc. The Lord removed hindrances and restrictions from lives. For example, GOFAMINT North America bought their Gospel City property of over 30 acres. Beloved, liberty in GOFAMINT is here to stay. It will continue to spread to every assembly, every household, and every member in Jesus’ name.
However, do not forget my yearly reminder to you. As believers, we must remember that the coming of our Lord could happen at any time. Therefore, let us note the following scripture:
“Therefore, you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.Matthew 24:44, New King James Version
Being ready means, we prepare, we expect, and we watch. This would qualify us for heaven when the rapture takes place or when the Lord calls us home. As you can see, many are being called home already. There will be no waiting for anyone who is not ready! The signs of the end of times are becoming more pronounced with each passing day.
Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold.Matthew 24:12, New Living Translation
Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your ﬁrst love.Revelations 2:4, New King James Version

One of the things that would keep you ready is accepting and living the life of a disciple.
1 – The Call to Discipleship
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.Matthew 28:19-20 New King James Version
Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.Luke 9:23, NKJV
Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.Matthew 10:38
The Lord Jesus Christ is calling us to become true disciples. There are disciples of men and there are disciples of churches but the only category of disciples that will make heaven, are disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those who are always committed and radically addicted to following Jesus and doing His will. The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ remains the only spiritual factory that produces disciples. Becoming a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ is a mandatory requirement to living the life that gloriﬁes God and making heaven.
The lifetime goal of a DISCIPLE is to become like Jesus. No greater desire can overtake this in his or her heart.
The consistent prayer of a DISCIPLE is to become more like Jesus and to tap into the provisions of Christlikeness to rise higher above sin and weaknesses to become what God intends them to be. A DISCIPLE MEASURES HIS or life not in relation to men, but to the Lord JESUS Christ. Anything LESSER IS inferior. He is radically convinced, radically committed and radically devoted to the cause and the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ.
2. The Acts of the Disciple
Purpose gives direction and meaning. Our Statement of Purpose is the reason why we exist, and it reads:
To preach the word of God and bring people into the membership of God’s family; To teach the word of God to enhance freedom, promote Christian maturity and bind the people to God for service and to live the word of God, to demonstrate the new life in Christ to the world and ensure the security of the believer.
The focal point of our statement of purpose is discipleship. A true disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ will do all the things listed in the Statement of Purpose, passionately, purposefully, and consistently. While those who are not will trade excuses and blames and look for ways to excuse themselves from these responsibilities and duties.
Let us consider them:
To preach the word of God and bring people into the membership of God’s family.
The church is not a social club or association. It is the only agency of heaven on earth for the winning of souls of men.
“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise”Proverbs 11:30
You cannot be a disciple and not win souls. For a disciple, no week goes without winning souls. In fact, winning souls is a daily aﬀair for a disciple. A disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ is an addicted and passionate soul winner. He or she does not wait for church programs to win souls. He or she is always bringing in his or her neighbours, colleagues, relatives, friends and so on to the Lord Jesus Christ. Titles, activities, and programs are not replacements for soul-winning. No one is above soul-winning. The passion for soul-winning made the early church turn the world upside down through their eﬀorts. The ﬁre of soul winning is one of the ﬁrst sets of ﬁres that burn in the heart of a disciple. If it is dead in your heart, examine yourself very quickly. Are you still a disciple of Christ? Or are you deceiving yourself? How many souls did you win to Christ last year? Are those fruits still abiding?
REPENT: As you commit to being a true disciple of Christ, you will change your world for Christ in Jesus’ name.
To teach the word of God to enhance freedom, promote Christian maturity and bind the people to God for service.
Only mature trees bear fruits. When a Christian lacks maturity, carnality disguised as spirituality will be the order of the day. The lifestyle of a disciple does not permit gossip or backbiting or pandering rumours. The words of God are forever on the lips of a true disciple. When true disciples meet, iron sharpens iron. They discuss what they have learnt or new discoveries from the scriptures to edify and build each other up; not vain philosophies of men. A disciple has no time for tale-bearing, he or she is too disciplined and mature to engage in such frivolities. He or she is not a promoter of carnality but of Christian maturity. He encourages young believers to mature in Christ and travails over them until Christ is formed in them. His focus is not just on growing old and passing time in the church but on growing up in the Lord. He grows downward to have his or her roots secure in the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ and upward to bear fruits of righteousness.
He or she is devoted and committed to the service of God – loyal and dependable, faithful, available, and teachable. These are the type of believers that stand the test of time and still have extra oil in their lamps when Jesus comes. Ask yourself: Am I this type of believer? Do I encourage people to become mature Christians or perpetual spiritual babies? Am I awakening their old ﬂesh and promoting carnality? Am I an enabler of sin or weaknesses? Am I serving God or engaging in eye service for personal gain? Are you not a stumbling block to those who desire to serve God? Do I bind people to God for service or do I discourage and make weary those who are working for God?
REPENT: As you commit to becoming a true disciple of Christ, grace for maturity is released to you in Jesus’ name.
To live the word of God, to demonstrate the new life in Christ to the world
A disciple is not a Pharisee; one who teaches the word but does not do them or claims to be a Christian, while his or her life is preaching a diﬀerent gospel. He or she knows that it is the word of God that is obeyed that triggers blessing not head knowledge. A disciple’s life is based on divine principles. He lives according to God’s word.
“But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’Matthew 4:4
And because he or she lives according to God’s word, his or her life produces new expressions of the life in Christ. This demonstrates the new life in Christ to the world. That person becomes a proof producer of all that Jesus lived, died and resurrected for. Others may pretend in a pharisaic way to be what they are not but a disciple lives the heavenly life without the stress of being caught unguarded because his private and public lifestyle is the same. The disciple becomes the mouth through which Jesus talks, the hands through which he reaches out to others and the legs through which he reaches the unreached. His or her resources, like Peter’s boat, are always available to further God’s work and so on. He or she changes the atmosphere for Christ wherever he or she goes. A disciple becomes an expression of Jesus in all he or she says or does. Are you an expression of Christ? Does your life attract people to Jesus or repel them from him? Are your actions an expression of carnality or the life in Christ?
REPENT: As you commit to becoming a true disciple of Christ, grace to live by the word of God and be a walking demonstration of Christ is released to you in Jesus’ name.
Ensure the security of the Believer
There is a zero guarantee of heaven for someone who is not a true disciple of Jesus. Such a person is not secure, and he or she is living dangerously. When the trumpet sounds or death calls or beckons, it will be a shocking moment of sudden realization. I pray this will not be your portion in Jesus’ name. Amen.
True disciples of Jesus activate progress within the church and produce a harmonious environment for godly people to thrive. An atmosphere devoid of rancour or bickering where people are free to use their gifts and talents to serve God.
The Time is now. Repentance is not negotiable. It is time to stop playing games with God It is time to become SERIOUS. Jesus calls us to repentance and rededication now. He has weighed us and found us wanting. Forget about how long you have been in the church. All those things will not hold water on the day of judgement. Return now to following Jesus and it shall be well with you.
Minister’s Note: Lead the entire church in a prayer of rededication and re-commitment to follow Jesus afresh as disciples.
National and International Programs
Let us recite our Statement of Purpose.
“To preach the Word of God and to bring people into membership of God’s family; to teach the Word of God to enhance freedom, promote Christian maturity and bind the people to God for Service, and to live the word of God to demonstrate the new life in Christ to the World, and ensure the security of the believer”
This is why we exist, and we intend to focus on the achievement of this noble purpose as we step into the New Year and Decade.
May the Lord God of your fathers make you a thousand times more numerous than you are, and bless you as He has promised you!Deuteronomy 1:11 (NKJV)
“The days are coming,” says the Lord, “when grain will grow faster than it can be harvested, and grapes will grow faster than the wine can be made. The mountains will drip with sweet wine, and the hills will ﬂow with it.”Amos 9:13 (GNT)
The ﬂoodgates of harvest have been opened to us. The decade of 2020 to 2030 is our decade of harvest. This is the season of unstoppable harvest for The Gospel Faith Mission International. From this year till 2030 and beyond, it is a time of abundant fruitfulness and harvest. This is a time when we will be witnessing a multidimensional harvest in the church, in our families and in the work of our hands. It is a time when we will enjoy the blessings of an open heaven over our eﬀorts; as our little eﬀorts will yield exponential results.
Grace for additional and multiplication has been released to the church and we will be operating at these levels from now on. Our churches will be operating at the additional level:
Praising God and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.Acts 2:47
And the multiplication level:
Then the word of God spread, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were obedient to the faith.Acts 6:7 New King James Version (NKJV)
Our churches will become centers of solution where the power of God is made constantly manifest to solve the problems of the people and meet their needs.
We will enjoy an undeniable and unending season of prosperity as the God of heaven blesses us tremendously to accomplish his purposes on earth. God is ready to raise a financial army for the expansion of His kingdom.
Everyone has a part to play in Operation 2030.
Kingdom Advancement Priority
The key to blessing is obedience; this is the key to producing unstoppable results in everything you do. Doing things God’s way produces godly results which stand the test of time.
God has called us to be engaged in the work of soul-winning. The church is the only vehicle for bringing people into the membership of God’s family. God is expecting us as a church to bring in our quota of souls into the Kingdom of God. This was why he founded the GOFAMINT, not as a social organization but to be a Church ﬁlled with Christ-like people who are true disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ; living a Christ-like life and bringing people into God’s family.
Therefore, throughout this decade and beyond, our priority will be to seek the Kingdom of God ﬁrst. This will permeate everything we say or do.
But seek ﬁrst the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all THESE THINGS SHALL be added to you.Matthew 6:33 (NKJV)
Make the kingdom your priority this decade and you will enjoy untold blessings from God, the rewarder of those who diligently seek him.
Kingdom Advancement Prayers
Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore, pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”Matthew 9:35-38 (NKJV)
As part of making kingdom advancement your priority, every member of the church will participate in kingdom advancement prayers. This would be an ongoing daily intercessory prayer for harvest, as we step into the season when our barns will burst forth with the harvest. Operation 2030 – prayer guidelines will be released, for all-year-round prayers to the Lord of the Harvest.
There will also be monthly prayer and fasting programs and vigils for the Operation 2030 program.
Kingdom Advancement Resourcing
There will be specialized training on soul-winning at each assembly to ensure that everyone is well-equipped to win souls. We would be giving Operation 2030 our time, talents and treasures to ensure that we spread our soul-winning net to every nook and cranny of the world.
Kingdom Advancement Goers
Every member must engage in an aggressive winning of souls into the kingdom of God. We belong to a family. This is the time we must evangelize our unsaved family members. We have neighbours, friends or colleagues we can evangelize. Let us bring them into the kingdom.
Outreaches to Nations
Our outreach to nations will be done through professionals who have been able to secure employment opportunities in foreign lands and who will start viable, self-sustaining churches in those nations.
Spiritual Maturity and Empowerment
As a church, we will be focusing on not only preaching and teaching the word but living the word. Raising and developing members into mature Christians. To this effect, our convention theme this year will focus on this. The church will also focus on Holy Ghost empowerment and ﬁnancial empowerment of members through training, counselling and opportunity placement.
Operation Identification (OPID)
This is a program that every saved, converted, spirit-ﬁlled sympathetic child of God should key into. The Lord Jesus after being ﬁlled with the Holy Spirit and power went to Nazareth and declared His mission to them (see Luke 4:16-30). Even though they did not accept Him, He preached the gospel to them. With this action, He laid a good example for us to follow. If there is no gospel church in your hometown, you need to ensure that you do your best to reach them with the gospel which is the power of God to salvation for those who believe (Romans 1:14-17).
Every true believer is called to evangelize. We are to go and preach the gospel. You don’t need to wait until you have a title before you can win souls. If you are saved, you are saved to preach the gospel. You are already an evangelist. Our teams of Evangelists are also on hand, who will support you by going to your hometown. All you need do is sponsor it by getting a piece of land or a place of worship there. May God bless you as you do this in Jesus’ name.
I would also like to appreciate those who have been sponsoring this programme over the years; the Lord will sponsor your own programs, in ministry, business and plans. He will also grant the good desires of your heart in Jesus’ name. I encourage you not to relent in your eﬀorts of support to this program, continue to pray and give. You will not lack any good thing in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Anchor for the Year 2023
The Lord is my Light and my Salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked came against me to eat up my ﬂesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Psalm 27:1-2, New King James Version
In the year 2022, our God showed up as our light and salvation. When the wicked and our enemies showed up, they stumbled and fell. They never prevailed against us. Shout Hallelujah! Being alive today is a testament to God backing up the anchor in our lives. To the glory of God, this New Year will be far better for you and everyone that belongs to you than last year in Jesus’ name.
The anchor for the just concluded year came from the book of Psalm 27:1-2. This will always be at work for us throughout the rest of our individual life in Jesus’ mighty name.
The anchor for this New Year is one that you SHOULD really be excited about. The scripture says in Joel 2:25-27NKJV.
So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust. You shall eat in plenty and be satisﬁed, and praise the name of the Lord your God, who has dealt wondrously with you; and my people shall never be put to shame. Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel: I am the Lord your God And there is no other. My people shall never be put to shame.Joel 2:25-27, NKJV
After two years of economic wipeout by the pandemic and other disasters around the world, the Lord is reassuring us in GOFAMINT that He is still with us. He is ready to restore to us the years we have lost to the pandemic. In the scripture above, He repeated it twice that we His people in GOFAMINT shall never be put to shame. This year 2023, He would do what would make you praise His name forever.
The Anchor for this New Year 2023 reads thus:
Yes, the Lord will give what is good; and our land will yield its increase.Psalm 85:12
You may sing:
God is good to me. He has done me well. Oh, my soul, rise up and praise the Lord.
Let us personalize the anchor. Say with me: Yes, the Lord will give me what is good; and my land will yield its increase.
Let me throw more light on the passages of the anchor:
Yes, the Lord will give what is good. The ﬁrst word says Yes. This means it is certain that God will give us what is good in 2023. Why? The Bible tells us that all the promises of God in Jesus Christ are Yes and Amen.
For all of God’s promises have been fulﬁlled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory.2 Corinthians 1:20. NLT
Also, “yes” is a word used in answering the aﬃrmative to questions. What does this mean for you? The devil and circumstances may want to mock you and your God this year. In fact, some economic analysts are predicting a recession in 2023. Your detractors may even want to taunt whether you are still holding on to that your God. Stand boldly and declare that “yes, I know my God will give what is good.” If you are given a negative report from the doctors, say the Lord will give you what is good.
And my land will yield its increase. Land in this context includes but is not limited to physical land. It includes anything that produces including the physical womb. Anything that you apply eﬀorts to, and you expect outcomes. Let me explain better by using another scripture. The Bible says:
I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.1 Corinthians 3:6
For your land to yield its increase, which means for your eﬀorts to be fruitful, you need God’s contribution. Whether you are waiting on God for the fruit of the womb, need an increase in salary, proﬁt, customers, good health, and so on, you need God to give what is good. What is good is God’s contribution in your life that would produce the increase. So, if you see any situation deteriorating for those around you in the same business, career, course or even family, don’t be afraid. That is not your portion. God’s contribution in your life, which is God adding (giving) “what is good” into your situation will make your land, whatever it means to you to yield its increase. Your outcomes and result would always be diﬀerent.
This anchor is God’s mind for you in GOFAMINT in 2023. He has foreseen what 2023 would be and determined that this anchor would deliver you. Just think back to 2022. Are you not glad you had that anchor? Did it not deliver to you?
Making The 2023 Anchor Work For You
With any promise of God, there are two roles. There is a part for us to play and the other part for God. We know God will always keep His word. We also need to fulfil our part.
Be A Child of God. Because this anchor is a diﬀerentiating anchor, it is only for a child of God. If you have not accepted Jesus into your life, do so now to get this beneﬁt. A child of God runs away from sin.
Partner With God. Since you need God’s contribution in your life, you need to bring God into every situation in 2023. Let Him be the Senior Partner. Since you are partners, He may request for you to contribute in many ways. It could be soul-winning, giving, helping others etc.
Be Led by God. “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.” Romans 8:14. Since you have now partnered with God, listen to His leading in every situation and follow it regardless of how you see the situation. He knows how the situation would end. Watch out for Him to lead you while reading His word, in prayers, messages, songs, dreams, through your Pastor etc.
Remind God Every Time in Prayers. Don’t wait till the benediction to recite this anchor. Remind God of the words of this anchor every time you pray this year. This makes you conscious of the promise. Add it as one of the bases of every prayer, and you will see God perform His word in your life this year.
Honor the Lord with your increase. Don’t forget the Lord when He gives you an increase. Give to Him.
Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruit of all your increase; so your barns will be ﬁlled with plenty, And your vats will overﬂow with new wine.Proverbs 3:9-10 NKJV.
I prophesy to your life that:
- Your land will yield its increase.
- All your fruitlessness will become fruitfulness this year.
- In every situation this year, my God will give you what is good.
- Whatever is making your land not yield its increase is now removed in Jesus’ name.
- Whatever is not good for your health is removed in Jesus’ name.
- Whatever is not good in your family and marriage is removed in Jesus’ name.
- Whatever is not good in any area of your life is removed in Jesus’ name.
- God will increase you more and more, you and your children in Jesus’ name.
- Your soul-winning eﬀorts this year will see an increase in conversions in Jesus’ name. God will increase you on every side this year in Jesus’ name.
Recitation of the Anchor in English
Yes! The Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. – Psalm 85:12.
Shout Hallelujah! We thank the Lord that we held our sixty-sixth International Anniversary and fifty-sixth Annual Convention last year. We saw the awesome manifestations of God. Some of the testimonies we heard was that of a woman without a womb that God gave a baby. Another had a dead child raised to life. Still another major testimony was that of the King of Ogunmakin, our convention community, who was rolling on the ﬂoor while giving his testimony. You can go and watch all these testimonies on our website, our Facebook and/or YouTube pages. More importantly, this is a reassurance that the convention ground is a hallowed ground where the presence of God abides.
This year also, by the special grace of God, I want to invite you to our sixty-seventh International anniversary and fi†y-seventh International Annual Convention that will take place at the Gospel City, Ogunmakin, along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The theme is REHOBOTH.
My God is waiting to do you good. Do all you can to come with your family, friends, colleagues, and especially guests. Come expecting the hand of God to address your situation spiritually, physically, socially, materially, and ﬁnancially. The Lord will preserve and provide for you to be there in Jesus’ name.
Faith Declaration for the Year 2023
Our faith declaration for this New Year addresses experiencing the fullness of God in every area of our lives. Our faith declaration is not just a yearly routine. It is the conﬁdent assurance that what we say is going to happen. Dr Tony Evans said, “Faith is acting like something is so, even when it is not so, in order that it might be so, simply because God said so.”
It is the conﬁdent assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.Hebrews 11: 1, TLB
We are empowered to declare and decree.
You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; so the light will shine on your ways.Job 22:28
Whatever we decree or declare by “FAITH” will come to pass.
For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”Mark 11:23
In the last few years, especially due to the pandemic, we have seen the work of the thief, who is Satan. He has stolen, killed, and destroyed. In many cases, he used the agent of diseases to wreck many lives. However, God wants us to turn our attention away from what the devil has done, to our Lord Jesus, and what He has come to do. He has come to give us life and then give it to us more abundantly.
Based on this truth, we declare this year 2023 as “OUR YEAR OF ABUNDANT LIFE.”
This is the Lord’s promise for us in GOFAMINT in 2023, and it cannot fail! Our Lord Jesus Himself declared these words:
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.John 10:10, NKJV
Some nuggets about this year’s Faith Declaration.
Don’t Accept Ungodly Solution or Advice
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…John 10:10a
This year, because of situations, you may be tempted to follow ungodly advice or suggestions. Don’t do it. That is one of Satan’s strategies to come into your life to kill, steal and destroy. The advice or solution may appear safe, fast, quick, and easy. But if it’s not godly, it would put you in bondage again.
Go For Abundant Life
I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly.John 10:10b
If you look at these words of our Lord Jesus, He said He came that “they”, which refers to us may have life. This refers to our salvation. We were dead in our sins. With salvation came our life. Unfortunately, many believers remain at this stage. The next stage we should all move to is that of abundant life. Abundant life means the life of Jesus in your health, ﬁnances, family, career, businesses, academics, and in every area of your life. Jesus has made provisions for everything that pertains to your life and living a godly life in His word.
As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,2 Peter 1:3
Don’t ever settle for less than abundant life. You can serve God in good health. You can be on ﬁre for God and still be wealthy. You don’t need to be corrupt to be the governor or become the CEO. It is not one or the other. So, I challenge you this year to stand upon this word of God and live the Abundant Life. “Faith is acting like something is so, even when it is not so, in order that it might be so, simply because God said so.”
Believe God, His Servant and His Word.
Who has believed our message? To whom has the Lord revealed his powerful arm?Isaiah 53:1 NLT
For you to experience the abundant life the Lord promise us in 2023, you need to believe God, His servant, and His word. According to the passage above, the powerful arm of the Lord would only be seen in your life if you believe His word. Believing in God is acting in the direction of your belief. If you have faith without any corresponding action that supports your faith, nothing will happen.
Tell Others That Jesus has come with Abundant Life.
You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.John 15:16. NLT
Don’t just keep the message of Jesus’ abundant life oﬀer to yourself. Tell others. Don’t you want your family, friends and even colleagues to live abundant lives? Tell them again and again until they are converted. Our Lord even promised that when you produce lasting fruit, whatever you ask the Father using His name, He would do it. He said, “whatever you ask.” Go and do it.
Say with me:
- Abundant life is my reality and my daily experience this year and beyond.
- I will not Settle for less than abundant life this year.
- This year, I have abundant ﬁnancial, professional, vocational, ministerial, academic, marital, physical, and spiritual resources to accomplish my purpose.
- This year, I am completely restored from not enough to more than enough.
- Whatever I have lost due to the pandemic is restored abundantly.
- This year, I will not experience the plagues of Egypt but the abundance of Goshen.
- This year, I am winning souls to heaven.
- I have all that pertains to life and godliness in abundance in Jesus’ mighty name.
How This Faith Declaration May Beneﬁt You
From time to time review this faith declaration.
Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.Joshua 1:8, NLT
Constantly say it with your mouth in every situation.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.Psalm 107:2 NKJV
Always give thanks.
In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.I Thessalonians 5:18. NKJV.
Avoid those who feed your fear and doubt. This year, surround yourself with those who feed your faith.
As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.
Run away from sin.
Now you are well; so, stop sinning, or something even worse may happen to you.John 5:14
Stand your ground using the word of God. This year, stand your ground on abundant life and never settle for less.
Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will ﬂee from you.James 4:7
Faith Confession of our Declaration
This year, GOFAMINT will experience abundant life in all areas. This dimension will cause uncommon restoration of everything that was lost, and result in divine acceleration in GOFAMINT. We are in the era of “ABUNDANT LIVING” in GOFAMINT. We will experience abundance in our lives, family, career, business, studies, and ministry. We now have more than enough to achieve our goals in life and ministry with ease. God has given us double for our shame. The doors of abundance in ﬁnances, health, giGs and fruits of the spirit, ministry, academic, profession, marriage and numerical increase are opened to us in Jesus’ mighty name. So shall this year be better for us than the previous years in Jesus’ name. We are highly favoured in the mighty name of Jesus – And all the people say loud amen and hallelujah.
Personalise this for yourself
- Thank God for the Anchor and Faith Declaration

On behalf of myself, the General Overseer and Members of the Executive Council of GOFAMINT, I wish you a happy and prosperous New Year – our year of Abundant Life. Once in three months be sure you repeat this message (it could be more if you choose to do so).
Once in the month lead your congregation to rehearse this year’s Faith Declaration in unison.
Tell your congregation that each of them should resolve to make this year better than last year. God will prosper every good thing we lay our hands upon as from this year in Jesus’ name.
I prophesy to you fresh anointing and abundance in this our year of Abundant Life (John 10:10). It is well with you in Jesus’ glorious name.
I am yours in the Service of Jesus, our “GREAT KING” God Almighty.
Pastor (Dr) E. O. Abina
General Overseer (GOFAMINT)
“HAPPY NEW YEAR” and remain blessed in Jesus’ name.
