Christians from all denominations on Saturday June 9th celebrated 220 years of Christianity in Sierra Leone.
Rev. Solomon W. Campbell said this day marks an historic event in the life of Christianity in this country, as he rapped further that the Body of Christ is grateful to the Almighty God for according them the opportunity to witness such celebration. He noted that the great heritage of the religion has been handed over to them by their forefathers, and as disciples of the faith they must guard it and deliver it safely to the next generation of worshipers.
Mr. Campbell emphasized to all Christians that the great auction and commission is a mandate for all and not only the few, as he said that no single individual or denomination can boast of evangelizing alone to the nation.
He rested his speech by saying that the task of winning souls is a challenge to all Christians in the faith and will be accomplished if all work together for the good in the glory of God.
General Secretary Council of Churches in Sierra Leone Ebun James said Christianity has been a pillar of light to this country, and pointed out that Christians must prepare themselves to proclaim the holy gospel.
He also revealed that the Church has been active in promoting Education and Civil Engagement through providing social benefit and addressing health issues.
The ceremony ended with a church service conducted at the heart of the capital of Freetown followed with light refreshment at the Ebenezer Church, Circular Road, Freetown.
