- MFM has denied claims and reports that its church has the largest number of unmarried girls
- The church said in the last decade, it has wedded over 150,000 couples across the globe
- According to MFM, the false assumption that the MFM has the largest number of female singles is baseless, erroneous and very misleading
The Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM) Sunday, January 26, debunked reports which claimed that the church has the highest number of single ladies among all churches in Nigeria.
The MFM said contrary to the report it conducted over 150,000 weddings through its singles ministry, GEN 218, in the last decade.
A statement by the MFM spokesperson, Collins Edomaruse, these weddings have been conducted based on the scripture in Genesis 2:18 which states “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him”
Edomaruse while quoting the pastor in charge of the programme, Pastor Popoola, said the GEN 218 offers training, teaching and guidance for bachelors and spinsters within the fold.
He said: "It is an exciting and vibrant ministry, attracting singles from all other denominations since its inception. It was established by our role models, Dr Daniel and Pastor Mrs Shade Olukoya."
He said that the false assumption that the MFM has the largest number of female singles is baseless, erroneous and very misleading.
Edomaruse also said that the church has a distinctive and well-structured youth movement where the youths and young adults of the ministry under the leadership of the general overseer have distinguished themselves as leaders in the fields of academia, music and sports with laurels to back this up.
He said the frequency of this spills into the Gen218 ministry, attracting large numbers of singles to our forums and events.
"It is therefore fallacious to assume the Mountain of Fire and Miracles ministries has the largest number of single females. Thousands of weddings held on a weekly basis, both at regional and branch levels," Edomaruse said.
He also said that the general overseer of the ministry and the Mountain of Fire and Miracles ministries have never stated that single men and women within the church should only marry within the ministry.
"We encourage and actively support all spinsters and bachelors, regardless of denomination, to build their relationships on biblical standards. We strongly advise all our single men and women to marry fellow believers within the Christian faith who equally believe in Christ's redemption plan."
"We believe this is God's will for marriage and is the best foundation for a successful and Godly marriage," he concluded.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the MFM had clarified itself on the message by its general overseer on the celebration of Christmas and Easter by Christians across the world.
The MFM said the ministry will hold sessions and meetings to examine the scriptures and draw positives from the wrong, negative and idolatry practises of the two events - Easter and Christmas.
