The Local Congregation of Port Moresby, Goroka Group Worship Service (GWS), Mount Hagen GWS, and Wewak GWS, in Papua New Guinea, which are under the supervision of the Ecclesiastical District of Australia West, recently conducted evangelical missions on separate dates.

In preparation for this, besides conducting devotional prayers, the congregations’ members gave their would-be guests free copies of the Pasugo: God’s Message magazine and religious pamphlets.

The district supervising minister, Brother Romeo Beltran, visited every congregation and GWS and led the study of God’s words in each propagation event.

The first of these was held at the Wewak GWS’s place of worship on May 31, 2024. This was followed with that of Goroka GWS (June 2) at the public market in the town of its namesake, and of Port Moresby Congregation at the public market in the town of Hohola (June 4), Bermundo Residence in Happy Valley Village (June 5), and its house of worship (June 6), all three venues being in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.

In his preaching, Brother Beltran proved that it is the Bible’s teaching that entering the one true Church today, that is the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ), is the sole means for people to attain salvation on Judgment Day.

“I was invited by my sister to attend this evangelical mission,” said a guest by the name of Margaret Morihai. “I was baptized in the United Church before. … I’ve found out that the Church Of Christ is much more different from my former religion. I want to continue listening in the Church Of Christ.”

Another guest, by the name of Matthew Sanduma, said, “I am thankful that there are people who wanted to share God’s message for salvation to people, especially here in Papua New Guinea.”

“The message is good and clear. All was read in the Bible,” observed Naomi Numberi, also a guest.

“I talked with my family and they too, wanted to join the Church Of Christ. We know that we will receive salvation here,” said Ruth Hahari, who was also among those who decided to undergo Bible studies. — With reports from Bunny Quiñola of INC News Section
