Kenyans have a responsibility in supporting local enterprises and impacting the world while here on earth. Speaking during the launch of CITAM Embakasi, Dr. David Oginde, the presiding Bishop of Christ Is The Answer Ministries – CITAM, noted that Christians should move from hiding behind the veil of prayer once they have received a clear indication of what God wants them to do. Speaking on the title “Growth : overcoming the power of inertia” Bishop Oginde lauded the partners and congregants of CITAM Embakasi noting that it had experienced tremendous growth despite bring on board for slightly over one year. He encouraged the congregation to glean from the lessons in Deuteronomy chapter 1 and verse 1 to 8 noting that they should not be afraid to move forward and achieve greatness for the glory of God. He further challenged Christians to understand that they are called to live on earth and to do so with impact. Reminiscing on the days when the Nairobi Pentecostal Church had settled at Valley Road for 40 years, he said the launch of assemblies such as CITAM Embakasi as a sibling of CITAM Buruburu, is in line with CITAM Strategic Plan 2025.
