In an effort to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Gethsemane Church of Christ have distributed 1,000 Bibles to 157 branches of the church.
The distribution was part of activities marking the opening of the 49th Annual Conference of the church that is ongoing in Kpar-yah Town, Margibi County.
Donating the items, Presiding Bishop Reuben B. M. Gbar said the exercise was a vision revealed to him long ago when he served as the youth secretary to the church.
Bishop Gbar also said the Bibles were donations from a group of American missionaries from the Franconia Mennonite Church of the United States of America that are working in partnership with the church.
Speaking at the opening section of the week-long event, Bishop Gbar called on the Liberian Christian community, especially members of the Gethsemane Church of Christ, to remain committed and be in constant prayers for God’s guidance and intervention in the current electoral saga in the country.
He said with the help of the Almighty God through constant and committed prayers, the country would rise again and would be blessed among nations.
The Biblical scholar disclosed that the 49th Annual Conference is being held under the theme “Go and borrow more vessels” with a Biblical text from 2nd Kings 4:1-7, describing the theme as a vision revealed. He said that God is about to pour his blessings upon Gethsemane Church of Christ and through the church, Liberia would be blessed.
Bishop Gbar prophesied that at the end of the 49th Annual Conference, souls will be won for Christ, and there would be great transformation in the lives of members of the church, adding that the church will be built and funds collected at the conference will go towards the completion of the church’s headquarters located in Soul Clinic, Paynesville, outside Monrovia.
Bishop Gbar has meanwhile called on members of the church to hold together in unity as the church expects to see the team of missionaries coming back to Liberia to undertake several development projects for the church in Liberia.
