Baptist Church Christians of Salem Natives in Great Soppo, Buea on Sunday, September 9, welcome their new Moderator, Pastor Francoise Kobba Nseke.
The official welcoming ceremony came two months after the Man of God was appointed to the congregation.
Pastor Kobba Nseke was appointed on June 24, 2018.
Preaching during his first service on Sunday, September 9, 2018, the Moderator beseeched Christians of the congregation to rally behind him as he embarks on his evangelical ministry.
He exhorted the Christians to join him in building the Salem Natives Baptist Church, which he said, was about to experience a new dawn.
Going by him, “I have come to build our church, and I cannot do it alone. I need your support and prayers. Follow me to the wilderness in disappointments and successes, so that together, we will make heaven.”
Talking to The Post after his inaugural Church Service, Pastor Kobba Nseke said: “my mission to Salem Baptist Church is to build the church both in structure and in Christians.”
He said the Christians of a church are those who can make or break the church.
Pastor Kobba Nseke is taking over the spiritual leadership of the Salem Natives Baptist Church Great Soppo at a time when the church has been facing a lot of challenges among which is financial misappropriation amongst Pastors, Elders and Christians.
On how he planned to solve the financial problems rocking the church, the Moderator said:
“money brings friends together and also breaks friends apart. The greatest problem the church faces is monetary issues. There was a lot of misappropriation of funds before, but I have come to solve this issue.”
According to him, “Salem Baptist Church Great Soppo is an independent church. We only send FCFA 20,000 to the headquarters in Douala at the end of the year. So Christians shouldn’t be scared that, their money will be taken to Douala. The coffers of this church will be used for renovation, equipping the church and for other projects.”
One of the Christians of the Church told The Post that Pastor Kobba Nseke “is such a wonderful man and a leader so I am ready to work with him in making Salem Native Baptist Church big and better”.
