Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Biography

Dr. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, after completing his Ph.D. in the United Kingdom and while working at the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research, initiated a prayer meeting in 1989 with 24 attendees in his living room. Following the success of the first meeting, subsequent gatherings witnessed the power of God and miraculous occurrences, prompting the need for larger venues. The prayer meetings eventually settled at 13 Olasimbo Street, Onike, Yaba, an abandoned slum near the University of Lagos, which transformed into the International Headquarters of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM).​


The church, led by Dr. Olukoya as the General Overseer, officially began on April 24, 1994, with the name "Mountain of Fire & Miracles Ministries" revealed during prayer. The rapid growth of believers necessitated strategic expansion, leading to the establishment of branches in state capitals, local government headquarters, senatorial districts, and localities. Despite the initial challenge of managing the growing congregation, MFM has become one of the fastest-growing churches globally, with branches spanning across continents, including London, the United States, Canada, Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia.

Our Beliefs

In the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, our beliefs encompass the following principles:

  • We affirm the Scriptures as the inspired Word of God, serving as the sole foundation for our faith and fellowship.

  • We acknowledge the existence of the One True God, ETERNAL, manifested in three Persons—God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

  • We recognize the fall and deprivation of humanity, emphasizing the need for redemption through the atoning Blood of Jesus Christ.

  • Salvation for humankind is achieved through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ and the transformative work of the Holy Spirit. Sanctification involves separating from all that is considered evil.

  • We embrace the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, as documented in Acts 2:4; 10:44, and 19:1-6.

  • We endorse the concept of restitution for past wrongs whenever feasible.

  • We observe the ordinances of the Church, including the Lord's Supper and Water Baptism.

  • We acknowledge the Church Universal, both in its visible and invisible aspects.

  • We affirm the divine calling and scriptural ordination of the ministry, approved by Almighty God.

  • We believe in divine healing as made available through the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • We anticipate the Rapture, which will gather all believers for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, and await the second advent of the Lord Jesus Christ when He will physically return to the earth.

  • We look forward to the Millennial Reign of Christ.

  • We acknowledge the reality of the Final Judgment.

  • We anticipate the creation of the New Heaven and Earth.



Our Mission & Vision

MFM Ministries is a full gospel ministry devoted to the Revival of Apostolic Signs, Holy Ghost fireworks and the unlimited demonstration of the power of God to deliver to the uttermost. Absolute holiness within and without as the greatest spiritual insecticide and a pre-requisite for Heaven is taught openly. MFM is a do-it-yourself Gospel ministry where your hands are trained to wage war and your fingers to do battle. At MFM, aggressive prayer is considered as an aid to spiritual focus and a check against being overwhelmed by the flesh. At MFM Prayer City, prayer goes on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, non-stop.

The objectives of this ministry are:

  • To propagate the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ all over the world

  • To promote the revival of Apostolic signs, wonders and miracles

  • To bring together children of God who are lost in dead churches

  • To train believers in the art and science of spiritual warfare; thus making them an aggressive and victorious army for the Lord

  • To train believers to receive Holy Ghost baptism and fire as well as a daily walk and relationship with the Holy Spirit

  • To turn the joy of our enemies to sorrow. That is why we would always have a Deliverance ministry wherever we are. If you do not believe in deliverance, you are not supposed to be in MFM

  • To build an aggressive end-time army for the Lord. MFM is an end-time church where we build an aggressive end-time army for the Lord. An end-time church is a church where a sinner enters with two options: he either repents or does not come back, contrary to the present day church where sinners are comfortable and find things so easy and convenient

  • To deliver those who have become slaves to pastors, prophets and apostles

  • To build up heavenly-bound and aggressive Christians. The priority in MFM is for people to make heaven. It is not a worldly Church

  • To build up prayer eagles

  • To purify the Pentecostal dirtiness of this age
