Founded on February 14th 1999 in the city of Ilorin, Kwara State, the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly is called to raise a takeover generation. The church is founded on the scripture Isaiah 2 v 2, and believes strongly in Proverbs 4 v 18, that the path of the just shines ever brighter. The church currently has three branches. With head quarters in the city of Abuja and two other prolific branches in the cities Ilorin and Lagos.
Where friends meet friends and all meet with Jesus…that’s probably the line everyone who attends COZA will never forget. Trooping out after each service, the chances of running into an old friend or school mate are so high; it’s always refreshing to know that Jesus is still at the centre of everyone’s life.
COZA has a simple mission, to disciple the un-churched. It creates an atmosphere which is not spiritually intimidating for anyone just trying to find their feet in Christ. “Don’t play church” the Pastor resounds often. “Minister to the Holy Spirit” he admonishes. Somehow these few instructions have made serving God not as complicated as it may have once appeared to some.
The church started in the city of Ilorin and was led to the capital city, Abuja, by the Lord in the year 2008. From the onset, it was evident that God was in the move, confirming his word about the path of the just shining brighter as it has currently been from one level of grace to another. The Ilorin church grow with every passing week under Pastor Wole Soetan’s charge. In January of 2012, the Lagos branch kicked off with a bang, under the leadership of Pastor Folarin Ogunsola. In less than a year their numbers have grown to the extent that they had to move into a larger capacity space to accommodate the influx of a great multitude.
At COZA, we celebrate you. Even the tiniest of babies, can probably echo that phrase. It’s not just a phrase. Perhaps in other words, it can be described as ‘no matter what you’ve been through all day and all week, welcome to the Potter’s house, where you are a vessel unto honor. Come, bring your burden and cast all your cares upon God.” Come to me all ye who are weak and heavy laden and I will give you rest. Have you been rejected elsewhere? At COZA, we celebrate you no matter who you are.
Everyone has a right of entry into the house of the King no matter how you look, or where you are from. At Coza, we believe that the church is similar to an hospital where there are a lot of emergency cases as well as routine cases that need attention- people in need of urgent salvation& those that need to grow stronger in their Christian walk. Nonetheless, the atmosphere allows you to come as you are but not to remain in sin. “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” the Pastor teaches. Each man will answer for himself on the last day. So pray with your own mouth and declare over your life. Be the prophet over your own life. Speak the Word. Simply because the Grace that saves can also prosper you in health and wealth, which is a full salvation package-accessed through Faith and Bible backed confessions.
Testimonies abound over what God has done through the Ministry of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly. People testify to how the word which they have spoken into their lives have manifested. The bible is so rich, who wouldn’t want its content manifested in their lives.
So this is COZA where friends meet friends and all meet with Jesus, where everybody is somebody. This is the Potters house where everyone is celebrated. This is the Temple of the King where the sincere milk of the word is shared.
This is the COZA you’ve heard so much about and we celebrate you.
