Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi, the founder and General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry has revealed how he got baptised as William in the Anglican Church.

He wanted to be called Johnson and he had everything sealed with his senior brother.

But on getting to the church, the officiating minister announced that his Baptismal name shall be William.

The young William was taken aback, but he felt it must have been what God wanted him to be called.
