Apostle Lawrence Achudume

General Overseer, VLBC International

Apostle Lawrence Achudume is a man called by God to do His will. In April 1992, and in obedience to God, he becomes one of God’s great Generals.  He founded VICTORY LIFE BIBLE CHURCH (VLBC) in Abeokuta, Nigeria. The church has grown and has about sixteen branches in Nigeria, the USA and London.  VLBC’s adventure into the world of soul winning and its growth, serves as evidence of the triumph of the power of Jesus over Satan.  

VLBC has truly “launched into the deep” as Jesus said.  The church continues to reach the uttermost parts of the world with the Gospel through tapes, books, publications and in personal soul winning.
