The Ministry started on July 10th, 2004 in New Life Pentecostal Church, Hollywood Florida. The Pastor of the Church was the vessel God used at the time the Ministry started. The man of God called Mrs. Awe to start and lead a prayer meeting every other Saturday at 5 A.M. Mrs. Awe, however, picked July 10th, 2004 to start the prayer but she purported it in her heart that she would not start until God speaks to her.
She sought the face of God for several months, then God gave her the go-ahead to start, however, she waited for re-affirmation and the Lord took her to Numbers 29:7 (NIV) which says “On the tenth day of this seventh month hold a sacred assembly. You must deny yourselves and do no work”. The exact day that Mrs. Awe picked and presented to God was confirmed in Numbers 29:7, to back up the call of the Ministry.
The Ministry started on July 10th, 2004 in the Church, which housed the Ministry for 6 years after we moved to our present location. The name of the Ministry was “5 AM Prayer Meeting” then the Lord changed the name to “Onyx of Righteousness.” Pastor Victoria Adedoyin, Minister Oyebisi Bamgboye, and Minister Osaretin Omobasuyi were later chosen as leaders in the Ministry.
We are called to intercede for people, to help the poor and to evangelize the good news about Jesus Christ.
We organize soul-winning crusades, health fairs and giving out welfare packages to the poor and feeding them. These assignments have been carried out in the United States and other parts of the World; we have been to Denver, New Jersey, Atlanta, Dallas, Orlando, and various places in Nigeria and Ghana.
To the glory of God, we are blessed with teams in different locations like Lagos, Nsukka, and Akure. Onyx of Righteousness has since birthed many Ministries and a Church.
“See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”
-Jeremiah 1: 10 NIV
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
-Matthew 28: 19-20 NIV
Onyx has a mandate to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to the unsaved. We do that through crusades and other evangelistic outreaches.
The message of Christ is about practical love. Through our welfare outreach, we provide relief to poor individuals and communities in need.
We also do a medical outreach where our medical team do a medical checkup and provide necessary treatments.
