The Liberia Evangelical Baptist Convention (LEBC) Incorpated has ended its second annual fellowship at the Trumpet Baptist Central Church in Ganta, Nimba County.
The convention, which brought people from 40 churches across the country and partners from the Diaspora, was held under the theme, “Equip Yourself for the Task Ahead,” with text from II Timothy 2:14 –15.
According to the general overseer of the church, Rev. Arthur Gboe Wheyee, the convention was held to celebrate the existence of the living Christ; to preach the Good News of salvation to the unreached communities; to communicate biblical truth for spiritual growth; and to demonstrate God’s love to all and for all.
He said the convention witnessed the baptism of about 12 persons and the ordination of two ministers of the Gospel.
The Liberia Evangelical Baptist Convention’s request to serve on the International Board of the Baptist was accepted by their international guest. Rev. Wheyee spoke of tremendous achievements the church has made in a very short period of time such as the purchasing of over 1500 acres of farmland.
“We are going to start cultivating our farmland this month as a means of sustaining ourselves,” he said.
The occasion was attended by scores of ministers from other Baptist conventions from across the globe.
However, during the climax of the convention on Sunday, November 6, several ministers headed by Rev. Wheyee were inducted into office to steer the affairs of the LEBC for the next four years.
