Pastor T.B Joshua Denies Being One Of Nigeria’s Richest Pastors

Pastor T. B Joshua has responded to our article on him being one of Nigeria’s richest pastors. in a statement sent to us by his organizaion he denounced being listed amongst the list of wealthy Nigerians because as he said, the money they get is not accumulated but used to help the needy. The full statement is published below:

We have been informed of the many recent articles on the internet stating that Prophet T.B. Joshua is one of Nigeria’s richest pastors. We have a few words to say on the issue.

First, we do not understand how those involved came to their conclusions. There are many who are wealthy in Nigeria and around the world and there is nothing at all wrong with having money. Money is a gift and the richest have that blessing. But we are not among them.

Since the inception of this ministry we have given out all we received from God’s generous hands. We have made it our daily habit to give to those in need – the widows, widowers, physically challenged, little people, fatherless and rejected in society. All of this can be seen on Emmanuel TV – a station established to change lives, change nations and change the world by examples of how to spend more on others and less on ourselves.
We therefore cannot be categorized among the wealthiest in Nigeria because what money we receive is not accumulated but rather given out to those who need it most. Apart from money, assets that classify one among the wealthiest are not in our possession. For example, houses around the world or private jets. It is true, we do not own a private jet – not that there is anything wrong with owning one. They are a blessing and can be used to further the Gospel. But we do not own one.
In the light of these truths, we ask that the articles stating us among the wealthiest pastors in Nigeria be retracted, please. We are simply not among.
There is not enough to keep for tomorrow. As it comes, we give it for the needy.
Please take your time to do your investigation on the facts we have given to you. What you publish is true, if we keep the money or save the money. The money is given to the needy.
We are definitely not among the wealthiest in Nigeria. Take note, we are not against the wealthy or the richest or having private jets, assets or houses all over the world. We are definitely not among because there is not enough to keep.
Please put your record right for posterity and for the good name of your site.

  1. Pastor T.B joshua is a man of the people, he is kind and loving he has helped mang lives in this world, i learnt alot abt giving from him, he is rich and not selfish he hasnt kept his wealth to himself, follow Nigeria’s if three more pastor’s can sacrifice some much in caring for the less privilage like T.B Joshua this world will be a better place to live. Long life to carry out more of ure God giving potential (T.B JOSHUA) is all i ask for u from God, keep ure Good work going, I LV U

  2. IF EVERYBODY HAVE THE SAME THOUGHT LIKE THAT OF PROPHET TB JOSHUA REGARDS BLESSINGS AND GIVING HONESTLY THE WORLD WOULD HAVE TURNED TO PARADISE . WE HAVE SEEN A LOT OF UNIVERSITY STUDENTS WHO HAVE BENEFITED FROM THE MINISTRY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST THROUGH PROPHET TB JOSHUA , MANY PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN HEALED OF ONE AILMENT OR THE OTHER HAVE BENEFITED FROM THE BODY OF CHRIST THE SYNAGOGUE CHURCH OF ALL NATIONS . AND SO ON . ISSUE OF MONEY SHOULD NOT BE THE DISCUSSION AT ALL IN THIS RESPECT . THOSE WHO STARTED THE TOPIC OF BEIGN REACH OR POOR SHOULD HAVE LED US TO SEE WHAT JESUS CHRIST IS USING A HUMAN BEIGN LIKE THEM TO DO IN THIS OUR WICKED WORLD. THOSE WHO ARE MEASURING WEALTH SHOULD HAVE DISCUSSED A BETTER THING THAN MONEY. THEY SHOULD PLEASE CHANGE TOPIC TO HOW THEIR WORK COULD BE FELT IN THE UNIVERSE WHICH WOULD BRING MORE WEALTH TO NIGERIA AND NOT WHO IS RICH OR POOR IN NIGERIA. WE ALL LOVE YOU PROPHET TB JOSHUA REMAIN GREAT SIR !!!

    those who calld themselv men of God shuld be an example to the people of the world..many of them preach givng but they themselvs dont give. They shuld look at gov Rochas okoroha who is not even a pastor,he build schools & give student free education even b4 he be came a gorvernor. Let them also look at prf TB josua.
