Christian believers have in the past been noted as hardly
having any social activities. It has therefore become
increasingly difficult to meet people from various walks of
life where relationships could be developed and choices made
that could lead to long-lasting relationships; in this case,
If a devout Christian socializes for instance, it is often believed that he
or she is ungodly and worldly. Yes this may be true, but we can do something
Going from church service, to fellowship, to work and then back home will not
help increase the number of unmarried people in our midst. If for instance your
Mr. Right is not in any of these places, then as they say, you may end up being
"left on the shelf" if you are a woman.
This is the reason why the Lord laid this vision of SIP in the heart of Rev.
Peace Goodey a couple of years back. She believes that with the help of the Holy
Spirit there shall be an increase in the number of marriages taking place in the
Body of Christ in Jesus name.
On February 14, 2003, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (Victoria Island

It is not too late for your Mr. Right or Mrs. Right. We should therefore not
sit back and watch others networking and match-making when the Lord can bring
Godly interaction and right relationships in the Body of Christ, which can even
exceed what is possible through some social circles.
Worldly people go to parties, night clubs and various social functions where
they build relationships that could lead to marriage, but not so with many
devout Christians. Therefore social interaction is needed but missing among
believers. SIP fills that void by providing a forum for Godly socialisation.
