The leadership of the House on the Rock has restated commitment to the good news gospel of Jesus Christ, which embraces peace and goodwill for all of mankind.
This followed the incident of Sunday, February 12, when a resident pastor of House on the Rock, Abuja Church, Pastor Uche Aigbe, in a message about fighting the good fight with spiritual weapons, carried an unloaded gun to illustrate his message on ‘Guarding your Faith.’
The church in a statement said, Pastor Uche , has been a leader in House on the Rock, Abuja since 1999 and has always shown exemplary leadership.
However, he realises that even with the best of intentions, carrying a gun to illustrate his message was ill-advised and regrettable.
Without hesitation, the church said Pastor Uche has acknowledged the gravity of his actions and apologises unreservedly for them.
“As a church, House on the Rock rejects all forms of violence and we stand on the good news gospel of Jesus Christ which embraces peace and goodwill for all of mankind.
“ We are cooperating fully with the authorities as they carry out their investigations into this incident, and we will continue to engage internally to ensure this break in protocol does not happen again,” the church stated.
