CHRIST EMBASSY CHURCH WARRI TO UNVEIL PIDGIN ENGLISH BIBLE
Christ Embassy Church has said that it will soon unveil its pidgin English version of the Holy Bible to further propagate the gospel.
Pastor Eddie Owase, Head of the Warri Ministry Centre of the Christ Embassy, disclosed this on Tuesday night in Warri as part of activities by the church to mark Nigeria’s 59th independence.
Owase said, “We have been able to translate the Holy Bible into pidgin (English). That is one of the biggest things we will give to the world soon,” he said.
Owase said that the Rhapsody of Realities, a daily devotional of the ministry, had been translated into different languages in the country.
The cleric said that two million copies of the devotional translated into Urhobo, pidgin English, Ijaw and Itsekiri languages were launched in Delta State in 2019.
“The gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is God’s power to save humanity,“ he said.
He also said that the ministry would continue to sustain the programme which it started 11 years ago, to win souls for Christ.
“Reach out Nigeria which started 11 years ago is a programme, designed to reach out to people, professionals, prisoners and those in the hospitals among others with the Word of God.
“We know that God’s Word has the power to change the lives of the people and if there is going to be progress and prosperity, it is going to be through the power of God.
“We carried out various projects in orphanages, police, prisons among others in Delta and we are glad to reach out to souls in the country, we will continue to do that.
“There is hope for Nigeria at 59. Nigeria is great, not diminishing nor disintegrating.
“It is our prayer that God will continue to sustain our leaders to do the inevitable and lead the country on the path of peace, progress and prosperity,” he said.
Owase appealed to the leaders to embrace the Word of God and believe in the unity and greatness of the country.
“God loves Nigeria. Irrespective of our differences, challenges, this country can only rise to be greater and stronger.”
