Pastor and Spiritual Head of the Celestial Church of Christ Worldwide, Rev. Emmanuel Mobiyina Friday Oshoffa has called on Celestial faithfuls to join his landmark Holy Pilgrimage to Jerusalem in the land of Israel. In the 76-year history of this largest white garment church in the world, no other CCC pastor has embarked upon this milestone since the church was founded in 1947.
Even more significant is the fact that, EMF Oshoffa, first son of the founder of the Celestial Church, Rev. Prophet Samuel Bilewu Joseph Oshoffa, has already perfected plans to host Celestial Pilgrims that will join him on this special inaugural pilgrimage to the first Papa Oshoffa Day in Jerusalem – an iconic landmark event that will be first-in-a-lifetime for all the pilgrims that are blessed enough to make it.
In a special announcement of the pilgrimage, released by Superior Evangelist Kayode Ajala, Secretary to the Pastor in Council and Head of CCC Media Worldwide, Pastor EMF Oshoffa confirmed that beginning from the takeoff date of 25 October 2023, apart from leading Celestial faithfuls to worship in the Holy Land, “There are other significant spiritual advantages our faithful church members shall benefit from. So I call on all Celestians to join me on this trip to the Holy Land from Nigeria and from all over the world.”
The Holy Pilgrimage will also feature special Celestial Baptism in River Jordan; Anointing Session in Jerusalem; Celestial High Mass in CCC Ambassadors Parish in Tel Aviv; and a Celestial Musical Praise Day. Along with the pilgrimage package, is a tour of all the major biblical sites, superb accommodation and buffet food service for 9 days.
Explaining cost implications, Ajala said: “This special Celestial Pilgrimage to Jerusalem with His Eminence, Pastor EMF Oshoffa is quite unique in all its ramifications. We’ve never had anything like it before. For intended Celestial Pilgrims travelling from Nigeria with the Pastor for the duration of 9 days, it will cost One Million, Six Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira [N1,650,000] only.
“Celestians in Diaspora (joining the pilgrimage from anywhere else outside Nigeria) would pay the equivalent of One Million, One Hundred Thousand Naira [N1,100,000] only. One full payment covers everything from flight, feeding and accommodation to biblical site tours and all the spiritual activities listed above. You can’t get a better bargain anywhere else.
“The pilgrimage is packaged by Slint Fly Aviation Services and supported by Christ Elevation Embassy.
