The long awaited unification of Christ Apostolic Church Worldwide may have already started from the youth department of the church.



This is because recently Christ Apostolic Church Youth Fellowship (CACYOF) and Christ Apostolic Church Students Association (CACSA), Ibadan Polytechnic Chapter held a joint programme. In case you don't know, CACYOF belongs to the General Executive Council faction, while CACSA belongs to the Supreme faction of CAC Worldwide.



Both students youth bodies ministered together in songs and drama.



The programme which was also attended by the Youth Officer of CAC Worldwide, Pastor Sam Gbuyiro was indeed an atmosphere of love of Christ. It is a sign that the 28-year-old crisis in the church is gradually coming to an end.

While preaching on the theme "Oneness: The main root of revival outbreak," the Youth Officer said whenever God is set to do something very unusual or to visit His people, He calls for a solemn assembly as this to challenge men to reconsider their ways and retrace their steps to where they have fallen or gotten things wrong in preparation for a new re-awakening.



He congratulated everyone present at the programme for being a part of the move of God in this time.



Pastor Gbuyiro who noted that oneness is the main root of revival said that it establishes the fact that if we must witness another revival, our oneness as a body of Christ will determine.



While talking on 'man as an agent of revival,' the Cleric said; "any change you desire should start with you. You must humble yourself, renew your love for Christ by re-examining His love for you, centre your thoughts on Christ and go on your knees for prayers. Every genuine desire for revival always brings men and women on their knees calling on God to visit His people. Learn from King Josiah who did not waste time shifting blames on other leaders of Isreal, but took responsibility for the change he wanted."



The Youth Officer explained that all CAC members should know by now why the attack of the devil is so severe on our church, adding that it is because no church or denomination has fought his (devil) kingdom and set his captives free like CAC.



"1930 revival was the last one we witnessed as a church and the nation at large. We are overdue for another outbreak of revival 88years after the first one happened. In fact, everything around us is pointing to this singular fact that revival is the only answer to our problem as a church and nation," he said.



He described the current state of the church as lukewarmness, compromise of gospel truth, confusion, selfishness and prayerlessness, stating categorically that all these confirm the need for revival.



According to him, bringing down revival is a cooperate responsibility and not a one-man show, saying that God will never reduce Himself and the scope of His work to a man's size or denomination.
