In June 1984, Pastor Emmanuel Fugoso enrolled in a Bible School in obedience to the call of our Lord Jesus Christ to become His servant. With God’s great help, he finished Theology in 1988 and started to minister in the church of God under the administration of the Open Bible Ministries in 1989. Between 1993 and 1997, he was chosen as one of the Board of Directors, served as the National Treasurer, and became an Overseer and a member of the Executive Body of Directors in the same group. From 1999 to 2003, he became a scholar at the Asian Theological Seminary (ATS) in Quezon City and finished his master’s degree. He attributed all his victories to the Almighty, who has always been with him since the beginning. His constant communication with God and sincere recognition of His power through fervent praise and worship led him to one of God’s greatest revelations for his life and for the church that would soon rise up.
One afternoon (at exactly 3:00 P.M.), while he was on his 16th day of prayer and fasting, God revealed to him His plan through a vision. In that vision, he saw a cloud slowly splitting apart to reveal a moving assembly of words that exactly said, “ITAYO MO ANG AKING IGLESIA” which means “Build My Church”. After reading these words, a man stood beside him and said, ”Raise them up from where they’ve fallen and teach them to obey my commands.” He received many more revelations from God, and after 21 days, he ended his prayer and fasting filled with His power and anointing. This is how ‘Rise of Church of Jesus Christ International Ministries’ started.
God made him achieve a lot of accomplishments in life, but it is not his desire to broadcast his successes, let alone boast about them. His utmost desire is for everyone to understand how God saved and called him for His Great Commission by spreading the gospel and taking care of His people under the Rise of Church of Jesus Christ International Ministries.
All the glory belongs to our Heavenly Father and to Jesus Christ, who forgave all his sins and chose him to lead His people to righteousness. All praises, worship, and thanksgiving be to the Holy Spirit, who has guided him to the path of victory!
“THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR LOVE FOR ME. WHILE I STILL HAVE LIFE, I WILL TAKE CARE OF AND TEACH YOUR PEOPLE WITH ALL MY HEART THAT THEY MAY OBEY YOUR WILL, AND YOU WILL LET ALL OF US ENTER YOUR HEAVENLY KINGDOM. AMEN, AMEN, and AMEN!”
