It was a gathering ever witnessed in the history of Christ Apostolic Church as Men Association of the church (CACMA) converge en-masse at CAC Babalola Memorial International Miracle Camp , Ikeji-Arakeji, Osun State to celebrate the 70th edition of her annual conference.  

The conference which comprises all men in all the regions in Christ Apostolic Church commenced on Wednesday November 9, 2022 and expected to end on Saturday November 12, 2022 ,

In his welcome address taken from the theme of this year's conference "Grow in the Grace and knowledge of the Lord", the National Chairman of CACMA, Pastor G.O. Obiwale stated that grace is a blessing that we don't deserve.

He further said that it is that attribute of God that enables us to break free of our sinful nature and follow Him.

"Grace is unmerited favour by which He saves and sustains anyone who places their trust in Him. Grace is not merely God's way of drawing us to Him in the beginning. 2nd Peters 3:18 tells us to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. To grow in grace is to matured as Christians," he further explained.

Pastor Obiwale stressed while speaking on "Growing in Faith" that we are saved by grace through faith (Eph.2:8-9), and we matured and are sanctified by grace alone .

According to him, Christian growth is about the quality of life, it is about how much closer we are getting to God, adding that christian growth is about character change.

"How much do we show love to our wives,our children and people around us.Jesus said this, 'I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly (John.10:10).'God has a process for Christian growth. It begins and also continues by grace and we are growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus and Saviour Jesus Christ," the Clergyman stated.

Moreover,while stating the attributes of a man who will experience growth in grace and knowledge of of the Lord, Pastor Obiwale said such man must have personal encounter with God like Apostle Paul in his way to Damascus and he must be a man of growing maturity ,growing daily in faith,advancing in the study of the word.

He also said;"such man be a man of serious prayer. Like our founding fathers Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola,Prophet Samson Akande, Pastor/Oba I.B. Akinyele e.t.c.He must be a man of transparent holiness. He should be a man of the Worr of God (Rom.1:16). He must be a man who has sound principles and a good example. He must be a man of godly home and model and model leadership. He must be a man of ladder, a broadminded and matured."
