What is Witness to All Nations?
Witness to All Nations, Inc. (WTAN), a registered charity, founded and led by Apostles Femi & Remi Ogunrinde, is an international ministry that serves as an apostolic resource/equipping base for releasing Kingdom work globally. It has become an umbrella which encompasses a number of ministries, including a training centre. Everything under WTAN is established for the purpose of reaching people with the transforming message of salvation through Jesus Christ, then equipping the saints and sending them forth into this nation and the nations of the world.
Our church leadership team recognizing the Holy Spirit’s work and leading in our lives, and desiring to obey God’s will, asked if we would agree to be publicly confirmed and released in our callings of apostle and prophet to the nations. We agreed, wholeheartedly. A special commissioning service took place on Father’s Day, June 15th, 2003. After this, we found the Lord opening many more doors for us locally and overseas for the purpose of establishing and unifying God’s people through the preaching of His word and the demonstration of His Holy Spirit.
August 21st, 2004 marked the inauguration of this ministry. A terrific group of dedicated friends of the ministry believed in this vision and took the initiative through the Holy Spirit’s leading to organize a fundraising banquet attended by our church family and many dear friends. The atmosphere felt like a wedding ceremony. We felt the warmth and the cordiality as well as the joy of friends and family, many witnessed the solemn pledge made with the Lord: That we would preach the gospel to the lost and dying world and would not love our lives as unto the death. Everyone that participated left with an indelible mark of great anticipation for an explosion of His Kingdom as a Witness To All Nations. The Master of Ceremonies of the occasion was Pastors Larry and Lois Seeman of Foundation of Life Church in Weyburn. The Keynote speaker for the evening was TV Thomas of Centre for Evangelism & World Mission, Regina who articulated clearly and beautifully three reasons for partnering with Witness To All Nations. The task is clear – Witness. The message is solid – Witness of the Gospel. The scope is world wide – To all Nations.

adhere to the following WTAN Statement of Faith
Witness To All Nations Statement of Faith
The Holy Scriptures as originally given by God are divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and constitute the only supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
There is only one God existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh; we affirm his virgin birth, sinless humanity, divine miracles, vicarious and atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension, ongoing mediatorial work, and personal return in power and glory.
The salvation of lost and sinful humanity is possible only through the merits of the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, received by faith apart from works, and is characterized by regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit enables believers to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Church, the body of Christ, consists of all true believers.
Ultimately God will judge the living and the dead, those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
