Celestial Church of Christ is bereaved. Yes, it has just lost a gem, who was like a spiritual father to all after the demise of the late founder, SBJ Oshoffa. He was one of the leaders of the church who lived a fulfilled life. While on earth, he tried to unite the church, though, many people didn’t believe in his cause because he was perceived to be greedy and self-centred.
Well, he’s dead now and his deeds while on the surface of the earth will be brought to book by his creator. His legacies will surely live forever.
Rev Pastor Paul Surulere Maforikan was born on September 19, 1930 in Ajase, Republic of Benin. His Father, Pa Joseph Maforikan, relocated to Ajase from Badagry, Nigeria during the war. It was there his father met his mother, Madam Celina Jokotola.
Baba Paul, as he is fondly called by his teeming admirers, joined Celestial Church Of Christ in 1948 through the direction of the holy spirit. He was previously a member of Christ Apostolic Church before he joined Celestial. He was one of the pioneering members who followed the Pastor Founder S B J Oschoffa to Nigeria
Reverend Paul Surulere Maforikan was Oyo State Evangelist for 10 years before he rose to the position of a Deputy Pastor in December 2002. He was proclaimed Pastor, Celestial Church Of Christ Worldwide barely 48 hours of the demise of Rt Reverend G O Jesse so as not to allow any unnecessary litigation over the vacuum created by the death of Rev Jesse. He is blessed spiritually and materially. HE died after battling with an aged-illness that lasted months. ADIEU BABA WOLI AT 86 YEARS !!!
