Abstract

In this research, we adopt an (M-S-E-I-R) model to understand the transmission dynamics of church growth, taking into consideration, deliverance on passively possessed infant on church growth. We established the faith-free and faithful equilibrium state of the model. Stability analysis was carried out in the faith-free equilibrium state and it was found that  λ1 = - μ , λ= -μ , λ= -(ε+μ), λ= -(γ+μ) ,λ5=  δB/μ -μ hence the faith-free equilibrium is stable if  δB/μ is less than μ (where δB⁄μ is number of non-Christian produced) otherwise it is unstable.

Keywords: Faith-free equilibrium state, faithful equilibrium state, stability analysis, deliverance, passively possessed infant, church growth
