” I’m a Celestain at heart “
My question centres around the following. I was born in and I’ve worshiped in Celestial Church of Christ ever since. About two years ago, in which I would admit I was quite distant from God,I asked God for a sign.
I travelled to a different country attended a Celestial church in which I got 2 confirmation , One there is no Grace to leave Celestial Church of Christ, Two ,In the latter I will do “Ise Oluwa” .
My issue is, I’m near enough the age of marriage and I meet this Man who is somewhat my equivalent, however he is not a member of Celestial Church of Christ, it goes without saying in the event we are to consummate and be married , I would be expected to go to his church. Is that an automatic sign he’s not in God’s Will for my life . I mentioned earlier I grew up in Cele I don’t ever intend on leaving as our song says ” mo ti fo wo mi ko we owon re re emi ko ni pada mo”

Since it’s God, ask Him. God alone can say if he’s your husband. If He says so, the man will definitely follow you. But if God doesn’t say so and you follow the man, you’re on your own.
Being born in this church, we’re told if you hearken diligently to the voice of the lord it shall come to pass… (Deuteronomy 28). That voice is close, move closer to Him and hear from Him so that He may order your steps.
God be with you.
My honest advice – Being born in celestial church does not make you a christian or going to church every day neither, Acts 2:38 says repent and be baptize in the holy spirit,2 corinthians 5:17 further says that the holy spirit will make you a new creature and everything about you will become new then you will experience the gift of the holy spirit explained in Galatians 5:22-25.
To answer your qustion i will say can a Baptist date a Pentecostal? Can a catholic date a Presbyterian? The most important issue is whether both individuals know Jesus Christ as their Savior. The Bible speaks of being “unequally yoked” (2 Corinthians 6:14), but this only refers to believers and unbelievers. It does not refer to two believers who happen to have some beliefs that are different. If both individuals know Jesus Christ as Savior, there is no reason, biblically, that they could not date and/or marry.
However, that is not to say there will not be potential problems and issues. When / if the relationship becomes serious and is potentially leading toward marriage, the couple must sit down and come to an agreement on what church to attend. If there are major disagreements in doctrinal beliefs, the couple must agree to disagree, and at the same time agree on how to raise children and agree on how to live out the Christian faith. It is best for a couple to agree doctrinally, but the most important issue is faith in Christ, love for one another, and a desire to have a God-honoring relationship.
It goes without saying that this applies only to different denominations of the Christian faith. True believers in Christ should not marry members of cults and/or false religions that claim to be Christian. Knowing and agreeing on the basic doctrines of the Christian faith is crucial for a couple who hope to have a successful, God-honoring relationship or marriage.
