Deeper Life Bible Church: The Nigerian Church That Has Stood The Test Of Time by FactBoyz: 2:11am On May 26, 2019
[b][/b]

Since its inception in 1973, Deeper Life Bible church is a church that stands out from the rest. Thanks to their uniqueness, sobriety and dressing sense which has remained unchanged since its inception. If you want to see “Christian sisters” still on long skirts with modest dresses and blouses; you will certainly find them in their thousands in this church. Factboyz brings to you 10 things you should know about Deeper Life Bible Church.


1. Unyielding Members:

Deeper life members are always seen by other Christians of other denomination as too rigid and too unyielding to the societal pressures around them. With the belief that everyone should live soberly and righteously even as written in the Holy Scriptures (Titus 2 verses 11) they rarely yield to pressures to commit sin.


2. The Overseer Handles Its Bible Studies:

For more than 30 years, Deeper Life Bible Studies are handled by it’s general overseer and founder; Williams Folorunsho Kumuyi; and for more than 10 years is televised worldwide in Deeper Life churches every Monday beginning for 7pm.


3. Quiet, Reserved Members:

From personal experience and encounter with some members of this Evangelical church, I discovered that majority or perhaps, a good number of them have a quiet, reserved attitude. This might not be unconnected to the fact that “foolish talk and jesting” is highly discouraged in the church.


4. Modest Dressing:

This fact stands as the one of the major things that has made this church very popular. Men who attend Deeper Life are known to dress smartly with trousers and well tucked in shirts; while ladies are known to wear long, modest dresses and skirts while totally covering their heads. Williams Kumuyi, its founder puts so much emphasis on the concept of Christian Dressing.


5. Strict Holiness Doctrine:

Deeper Life Bible Church has its foundation in strong church doctrines that might not change anytime soon. For instance, the church believes that women are not to put on earrings quoting 1 Peter 3 verses 3 and 1 Timothy 2 verses 9. Same with its stance on trousers as they don’t allow women wear trousers citing historical reasons such as the fact that before trousers for women were made popular in the 1960s; it was not accepted as a female wear. Biblically they quote Deuteronomy 22 verses 5.


6. Christmas Spent In A Camp Ground:

Christmas Time is a time most Nigerians spend in their respective hometowns and villages; however, it is a bit different for Deeper Life members as End of Year camps are organized starting from around 24th of December and ending around 27th. Hence, in their various campgrounds all around the nation; thousands gather to hear the word of God preached to them.


7. Its Founder Was A Lecturer:

W.F KumuyiWillam Folorunsho Kumuyi, (b. 1941) was a lecturer who taught in the University of Lagos. He graduated with a first class honours in mathematics from the University of Ibadan in 1967. In 1973 while as a university professor, he began a bible study group with 15 students who had come to him for Bible training. This was how Deeper Life was birthed.


8. Record Breaking Crowds:

Deeper Life Crusades are known to draw hundreds of thousands of people and sometimes close to a million. William Kumyi’s visit and tours to states are greeted with much publicity and strategic planning that most times, the governors of the respected states visited for crusades attend. Kumuyi admitted in an interview that the success of his ministry and church depended on committed one on one personal evangelism.


9. One of The Largest Church Auditorium:

In April 2018, Deeper Life Bible church completed a building project it had begun for years which stands as one of the largest church auditorium in the world with a sitting capacity of about 30,000 and valued at about 5 billion naira which stands at 16 million dollars!


10. Television once banned for Members:

Every church has its own time of troubles and for Deeper Life it came this way; Pastor William Kumuyi once taught that Television shouldn’t be in a Christian home. He obviously said this because of his zealousness in keeping the holiness standard high among Deeper Life members. This teaching continued in Deeper Life for years and it generated wide controversies and arguments till the late 90s and early 2000s when Deeper Life started videotaping and televising their programs.

Hope you enjoyed our list?

I can only speak for the General Superintendent, Pastor W. F. Kumuyi. Every other soul in Deeper Life needs to learn to have genuine love for mankind and get a life of their own.

Don't pretend not to know where you goofed. There is "only loud speaker" boldly written in your comment of which the same person claims it's the speakers that is disturbing him/her.

Please point out where @reccy mentioned musical instrument in his/her post that warranted you to claim he/she is lying.

They discriminate other church denominations a lot. damning other people to hell because they ain't deeper life members. Well, I love and respect Pastor Kumuyi a lot though. But most of his church members don't follow his teachings on Love.

You are on point man.

All of this church rules and beliefs doesn't conform with that of heaven, it's a direct opposite.

New crops of churches will soon appear in Nigeria.

Re: Deeper Life Bible Church: The Nigerian Church That Has Stood The Test Of Time by Bacteriologist(m): 9:03am On May 26, 2019
I may be wrong, but I assert that the large majority of Deeper life members are hypocrites and sadists. Their religion makes them so numb to the pleasures of life that they pass on that negative energy to undeserving people.

1. Deeper life members are very very difficult to live with. They use being 'principled' as an excuse to act like the complete animals their religion makes them to be. Having shared a room even when I was a Christian, with one, I know how it feels.

2. In work places, they are basically impossible to reason with. If you have inadequate requirements for a favour(probably due to an unavoidable fault) and the person in charge of that office is a deeper life member, you can pretty much forget about getting anywhere by begging or trying to explain. They're that insensitive.

3. A lot of them are largely ignorant. Their mentality is warped. They believe in one of the most ridiculous things. TVs are bad? Can't have a nice haircut? Can't dress the way you please? No earrings? Omg let me stop here.

Of course there will be good people among them but that sect of christianity is largely based on outright nonsense.

im not a deeper life member,but i can categorically tell u...their ways and teaching are very good
nowaway days,our churches teach us christians how to live a holy life,and thats it,we are left to either implement what is been taught or not but these people,they go as far as making u implement it,which to me is a good step in keeping the faith
