Zambians were this morning left shocked after newly elected President, Hakainde Hichilema, held a church service right inside state house.
Hichilema is a devout member of the seventh day Adventist church.
Hichilema wrote on Facebook:
This morning we were joined by fellow congregants in praise and worship at State House.
The Body of Christ is one and therefore we encourage each one of you to take time to thank God for His mercies.
While in office, we will ensure that Christianity is not only in word but also in action for faith without works amounts to nothing.
Zambia’s stance as a Christian Nation will be upheld to the honour and glory of our God Almighty.
In his message, Pastor Hamilton Mulendema reminded us to continue looking to God Almighty when in trouble and also that the country expects us to deliver the much desired change. We ask for God’s wisdom and through Christ, this we will deliver.
To our brothers and sisters going to worship tomorrow, Sunday, we encourage you to do so wholeheartedly. Our government is open to work with all churches and all churches are welcome to State House, which is a house for the People. In order to emphasise this, we will be joined by fellow Christians tomorrow, Sunday, 29th August, 2021, for a fellowship service. We are one Zambia, one Nation and one People.
May God Bless our Country.
