The prophetic word has proved to be the power of God behind Bishop Joseph Imakando’s work as the Church has grown significantly over the years and keeps growing.
Bread of Life Church International (BLCI) was born from a prophetic word on 13th September 1992. At the time, BLCI was known as Emmasdale Church with a little over 120 members situated at plot no. 136, Chinyunyu road in Lusaka’s Emmasdale, Zambia. The Lord gave a clear word; “I am giving you thousands, you will possess the land and feed the people with the Bread of Life.” Therefore, the prophetic word gave birth to the vision of the church, “Bringing thousands into the Kingdom”
‘Bringing Tens of Thousands into the Kingdom’.
The prophetic word “I am giving you thousands, you will possess the land and feed the people with the Bread of life” was later transformed to “Bringing thousands into the Kingdom” which was in line with the vision of the church. However, the vision has now been transformed to ‘Bringing Tens of Thousands into the Kingdom’.
Bread of Life Church is also composed of various ministries,
The Children’s Ministry is a vibrant department in Bread of Life Church which is established to carter for the development support of children from age 3 to 16 years. The Ministry’s fundamental scripture is Proverbs 22: 6 “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not turn away from it” (NIV).
The vision of the church states: "Bringing tens of thousands into the Kingdom.’ which implies that there will be thousands of people coming to Bread of Life Church. Counseling Ministry is one responsible to nurture them (people) to relative maturity in the Christian faith.
This is the ministry which functions as the heart of Praise and Worship at church. It is responsible for Sunday worship, singing auditions, holding of concerts in order to enhance the quality of praise and worship. In conformity with the vision of bringing thousands into the kingdom, feed them with bread of life and possess the land,
