Vanuatu Christian Council to march for Jesus

11:33 am on 22 October 2016

The Vanuatu Christian Council has organised a three-kilometre march through the capital Port Vila to proclaim the country for God.

The Chairman of the Vanuatu Christian Council, Pastor Allan Nafuki, said this was the first time for the VCC to organise a march for Jesus saying it is timely to let religions know that the Republic of Vanuatu is built on Christian principles.

Not only that but the Chairman and VCC Secretary General, Pastor Shem Temar are both members of the Vanuatu Constitution Review Committee.

Pastor Nafuki said if a referendum needed to be organised to get the views of the people then it would be done but the Constitution had to be reworded to include Vanuatu as a Christian Country that believed in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

Pastor Nafuki said the VCC and the Government were concerned that the freedom of worship clause in the Constitution was too open, which in turn allowed other religions including the Islamic faith to creep in.

He said a review of the constitution was essential to restrict the religious freedom to mean Christian churches which preach the truth in the Bible.
