Parades and services mark Bible Church’s 70th anniversary


MEMBERS of the PNG Bible Church celebrated its 70th anniversary last Saturday with activities including parades and services.
In Port Moresby, members of the church in the Southern region met at the North Waigani worship centre.
The programme started with a march from the University of PNG to the North Waigani Church.
Church members from Milne Bay, Northern, Gulf and Central were given Tok Pisin Bibles.
During the service, church leaders and elders were awarded certificates in recognition of their work. Among them were missionaries Pilipo Miriye, Andrew Ogil and Fred Tulia.
Ogil urged young members of the church to stand up for God.
The head pastor of the Southern region, Reverend Moresby Tunge, said the church was growing and the participation of hundreds of Sunday school children and young people was proof of that.
The church was founded when American missionary GT Bustin arrived at Pabarabuk, in Western Highlands, in 1948.
It later spread to Western Highlands, Southern Highlands and Enga.
Today there are congregations in nearly all major centres in Papua New Guinea. The church runs two Bible schools, two high schools and one secondary school.
It holds a broadcasting licence under which the inter-denominational Wantok Radio Light station operates.
