Our History

How It All Began

ABOUT ARENA​

On the 18th May 2008 and with only 53 people gathered together in the rooms of a small family home in South East London, Mount Zion Christian Ministries International (Freedom Arena) held its first service.

This Ministry was confirmed on 22nd January 2008 when God spoke to His servant Debo Adegoke saying, “Take root downwards in the UK and I will take your fruits all over the world”. The Ministry was given birth based on Obadiah 1:17:

“But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.”

From 25, Kinder Close, the church moved to the recording studio of “Passion Television” in Charlton, South East London. There it grew miraculously, until it outgrew both the main auditorium and the overflow.

Mount Zion Christian Ministries International moved on to start fellowshipping at the Asian Community Centre in Plumstead, also in South East London. From there it sojourned briefly at 240-242 Plumstead High Street, having to hold two services every Sunday on account of constraint of space.

With a regular congregation of about 700 adults excluding children and youths, the church continues to grow and expand
God has daily been adding to the church, and the congregation of the now popular Yoruba Prayer meeting, “Bami See” as at the last count, has grown to well over 2000 attendees.

Recently, God gave the ministry an “oversized miracle”, when it secured the use of a 2.3 acre property, next to the Asian Community Centre, by leasehold.
This current site of the church tagged “Freedom City”is the meeting place for all its activities. In addition, the church still holds the lease on 240-242 Plumstead High Street.

The Mandate

But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions – Obadiah 1:17 KJV

Vision

Our Ministry is established on the pillars of Holiness, Obedience, Knowledge and Diligence.

The vision is to raise generations of people for the Kingdom of God. A people fully acquainted with their God and His Word (the holy bible) a people who have been set free and are living in their purpose and destiny. To reach our local, national and international world using creative technological advancements in a way that enhances the message of the Gospel.

Without the above pillars in the life of the believer no one can enjoy freedom or possess their possessions. These pillars were given by God to Pastor Debo Adegoke when he set out to start “Mount Zion Christian Ministries International.”

How are we meeting our vision?

By preparing elects to love God and man, and also to be loved by God, i.e. fulfilling the great commandments – Matt. 22:34-40; Ps. 91:14-16.
By making everyone to be diligent through the teaching of the WORD, and thereby showing the world how to be diligent – Prov. 4:23; 10:4; 12:24; 22:29; Luke 12:58.

MISSION

The mandate of the Ministry is “setting the people free from the oppression of Satan through the Word of God and prayers of faith, and to possess their possessions

  1. The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to mankind, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
  2. There is one God, existing eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit (John 10:30; John 14:26; Philippians 2:5-7).
  3. God is Love and He loves all people. It is His desire to reach out to those who are poor, oppressed, widowed or orphaned, and to heal the broken-hearted (Psalm 68:5, 6; 1 John 4:16)
  4. Man is created in the image of God but separated from God by sin. Without Jesus we cannot have a relationship with God (Genesis 1:26; 1 Timothy 2:5).
  5. We can have a personal relationship with God through salvation, God’s free gift to man. It is not a result of what we do, but it is only available through God’s unearned favour. By admitting we have sinned and believing in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, and accepting Him as Lord, we can spend eternity with God (Ephesians 2:8, 9; Romans 5:1; Romans 3:24).
  6. We believe in water baptism, as taught and demonstrated by Jesus, as the way for believers to identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus (Matt. 28:19; Romans 6:4; Matt. 3:13-17).
  7. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God. He helps empower the believer to develop the character of Christ and live every day in God’s will (Matt. 3:11; Acts 2:4).
  8. God gives all believers spiritual gifts. They are for the strengthening of God’s people (the Church) and proof of God’s existence and power to unbelievers. The gifts of the Spirit are active and relevant today (1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Peter 4:10).
  9. Sanctification is the ongoing process of allowing God’s character to be developed in us (Romans 6:19; Galatians 5:22-25).
  10. Divine healing is active in the lives of people today through Jesus, who is the Healer. Healing includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual restoration (Luke 9:11; Matt. 9:35; Acts 10:38; Matt. 10:1).
  11. The Bible describes hell as a real place. It is a place of suffering and a place of permanent separation from God for those who die without accepting Christ. God’s desire is that no one be separated from Him for eternity, which is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth (Heb. 9:27; Rev. 20:12-15; John 3:16-18).
  12. Jesus will return and take all those who have accepted Him as Saviour to heaven for eternity (Acts 1:11; 1 Thess.  4:13-17; Heb. 9:28).
