The much talked about Redeemed Church’s three kilometre-by-three kilometre Arena, still under construction, located on Simawa Road, some distance from the outgoing one and half kilometre by one kilometre arena, will be in use for its 63rd annual convention slated to hold between 3 and 9 August. The Redeemed Christian Church of God confirmed the auditorium is expected to host 12 million persons.

Head of Media and Public Relations, RCCG, Pastor Segun Adegbiji, was reported by therainbowonline.net as telling journalists at the Redemption Camp that the new arena would host plenary sessions of a few evenings of the week long programme on an experimental basis. He was supported during the briefing by several other ministers of the mission.

According to Pastor Adegbiji adequate arrangements have been put in place to host participants from the 24 regions of the church spread across 188 countries of the world.

He quoted the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, as warning unserious persons to stay away from this year’s convention, which has a theme The All Sufficient God.

The church, according to the report, also passed a strong message on the vexed question of same sex marriage, which was recently endorsed by the American Supreme Court.

For the church, there can be no compromise: it is one man, one wife; any other arrangement is out of the table.“We don’t support it. There is no where in the Bible where God said people of the same sex can get married. The stand of the church is very clear and it states; one man, one wife,” pastor Adegbiji said.

Similarly, the church clarified its position about Christians in politics, noting that it does not bar individual members of the church from participating in politics but “we are not accountable for their performance.

“We pray for those in power as the Bible has enjoined us to do. That is our stand but we believe that by the end of this year, Nigerians will have cause to say that all is well.”

  • Abosede Remi Yeboah says:

    The God who has made this happen will cause His manifestation through it to serve its purpose through His faithful servant in Jesus name. The faithful one of God you will always increase in Jesus name. Your boldness is practiced because of your truthfulness. Even fools know that God created male and female and to bring up production. How then has it become same sex marriage? Oh America! Let God be God. And remove not the ancient boundaries, for one man one wife and it is a man to a woman. Even animals understand this.

  • Adedamola Hazzan says:

    Am happy for the church, its members and owners for achieving this milestone. Now i sincerely hope the church has got adequate provisions in place so whenever they have their revivals the express way does not become a no go area for the duration of their revival; people stranded in the middle of the road hours on end is not fair on other road users, and am sure lessons would have been learnt from their previous site and the logistics will be put in place to aid a smooth journey for people that have nothing to do with the church
