WHP youths told to keep the faith


A PASTOR has told 106 youths after baptism to keep their faith and serve God faithfully.
Pastor Steven Konga, of Holy Spirit Movement Ministries Worldwide Churches, was peaching to youths at Baiyer Block in Lumusa, Western Highlands.
Konga urged them to commit themselves to the Christian faith.
“I am in Port Moresby now and my continuous encouragement to them is to live to the decision they have made through faith and live each day in their promise,” Konga told The National yesterday.
The youths were baptised during a week-long crusade at the Baiyer Block community.
Konga said many youths turned away from the church because they took their promises lightly.
He said youths could be easily tricked by the evil when their faith was not strong.
“Evil is looking for youths like a roaring lion to devour the young generation and cripple the growth of the churches and the nation,” Konga said.
“The foundation of the community, the district, the province and the nation is the young generation.
“I continuously encourage all youths in the churches to live in strong faith.
“Only then will evil have no power to move and devour you.”
He said youths needed to take the church to the next level by preaching a message based on a strong foundation of faith.
Konga said the lareg number of youths baptised changed the perception and the mindset of the people in the community.
“Gradually they are planning to see greater things ahead,” he said.
He plans to send some of the 106 youths to pastoral schools to learn to understand the Bible and be able to preach effectively.
