Pastoral Statement on the State of the Nation: Issued on 4th March 2012
The Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia, gathered 230 church leaders comprising of bishops, reverends and pastors in Lusaka and Kitwe during which time the leaders reflected on the state of the nation in the light of our prophetic responsibility of being the salt of the earth and the light of the world (Mtt.5:13,14).
As an evangelical movement, we have observed with great concern the recent issues affecting the people of Zambia and how they are like ‘sheep without a shepherd’. Our role in relation to any government in power is advisory, pastoral, prophetic and priestly as we endeavor to consistently represent the needs and aspirations of the people before our Almighty God. We execute these tasks without partisan interests.
