Who we are?

Introduction....

Papua New Guinea is a country founded on Christian Principles and this is manifested in the preamble of our Constitution:
“We pledge ourselves to guard and pass on to those who come after us these Christian Principles. We also, as a people, commit ourselves to establish a sovereign nation Papua New Guinea under the guiding hand of God.”

Consistent with this, Christian Churches in PNG for years have always played an important role in the building of this wonderful nation of PNG and will continue to be the major player in partnership with the State in the delivery of essential services. Traditionally the churches have been leading in the areas of Health and Education. The government of PNG has been very supportive of the work of Churches and has continued to support and encourage where possible and we thank God for such leadership in Government. 

God hears our prayers when we call on him

We get Financial Support From Prayer partners, sponsers and those who support through our share-a-thon fundraising drive.

A TESTIMONY

It was around 7.20 am this morning when I switched on to Wantok Radio Light Station, not even a clue on what the program was. There was a particualr lady (expatriate) being interviewed by a certain popular gentlemen who is a very familiar Radio Presenter. Mind I'm not a regular listener to this Godly station but I broke down crying softly in my car when I was hearing the Lady going through the ordeal she went throught while ministering to the orphans and sexually abused woman in Sudan - Africa. The severe Brutality, shame and ridicule these women have to go through everyday as expressed by the lady is just unimaginable I broke down when the lady confessed to have been raped by some muslim extremist whilst searching for a child...for nearly four years she never told her husband of the incident out of reasons only known to her. I have fallen from Grace backlided and this story just opened my stubborn mind and heart. regards.
