There is a general perception that Celestial Church of Christ has a different set of practices which do not align with mainstream Christianity, but one man is changing the paradigm.
Recently, we had the opportunity and privilege to be not only in the presence of greatness but in the corridors of the anointed. His name is Prophet Oladele Israel Ogundipe.
“Prophet Dele”, as he is fondly called, is the shepherd in charge of Genesis Global, a ministry within the commission of the Celestial Church of Christ. He has been tagged the founder of the model type of celestial church with some urban appeal. The order of service, the atmosphere, the music and the posh- looking church interior and exterior pass off the feel of being in a model Pentecostal church. His style of preaching and belief is far from your typical Cele Church.
Coming from a very poor background and with little education, Israel Oladele Ogundipe has been able to build a modern Christian assembly that appeals to the young and upwardly mobile. Genesis global has over 10,000 registered members from Nigeria and around the world.
We spent his 43rd birthday with him, family, friends and church members. Woli Dele as he is fondly called in Yoruba by the elderly, who are his parishioners, narrated how he started and what inspired his brand of white garment church during some of our conversations.

Known for delivering soul-lifting worship songs, minstrel Noella is out with a new song “Nothing Else” to celebrate her birthday. This birthday is truly a remarkable one for me. I have not lived too long but yet lived long enough to fully come to the realization that everything is a loss without Jesus Christ. This is my heartfelt message to the world. In Christ I have found life and purpose… nothing else matters!
I have one desire, and that will I seek
To behold your beauty, and enquire in your temple
I long for nothing else(4×)Chorus:
I wanna be like you, talk like you
Think like you do and, walk like you
Help me to know and show, your love to the world
And loving you with all that I am
I long for nothing else (4x)
Bridge: If I live, it’s got to be (for) you
If I breathe, it’s got to be (for) you
Its for you
If I live, it’s got to be (for) you
Oche ka oche it’s got to be (for) you
Agabaidu eh… it’s got to be (for) you
Adah kum oh…it’s got to be (for) you… oh!
(Repeat bridge; sing till fade)
