President commissions Liberty Cathedral, advises Christians to invest

Saturday 3rd May 2014

President Yoweri Museveni has advised born-again Christians to use the same spirit they exhibit when contributing money for building houses of prayer to do the same and start income generating activities that will provide them with financial security.

“When Pastor Namutebi told you to stand up, she said you are investors by combining forces to build the Cathedral. Now, I want you to use the same philosophy you used to build the Centre to become investors. Buy a maize mill so that you make money,” President Museveni counseled.

Mr. Museveni was today officiating at the commissioning of Liberty Worship Centre International in Lugala, Rubaga Division in Kampala.

The President on arrival at the Centre, planted a tree at Liberty Sunday School, Commissioned Liberty Medical Out-reach and later opened Liberty Worship Centre International Cathedral.

President Museveni, who congratulated Pastor Namutebi and the congregation for the big achievement of constructing the 25,000 seater-Cathedral as well as for preaching the word of God, encouraged born again Christians to use the same discipline of contributing funds to also open up income generating activities since they have good leaders who are honest.

The President also pointed out that freedom of worship was allowed in the country immediately NRM government came to power in 1986 because religious sects, like the born again churches, are doing a good job like shaping the future of the youth.

“We shall know them by their fruits, what they do not say. From what you are doing, it seems your fruits are clear. If you are sincere with what you do, you can make a big contribution to your countrym,” he said.

The President later donated Shs. 20 million to the new Liberty Worship Centre Cathedral and also cut a cake prepared for its opening.

The hostess, Pastor Imelda Namutebi, flanked by her husband Pastor Tom Kula, hailed President Museveni for honoring their invitation.

She also thanked him and the NRM government for creating a conducive environment in the country where freedom of worship is guaranteed.

Pastor Robert Kayanja of Rubaga Miracle Centre Cathedral pointed out that leaders are anointed by God and vowed to pray for President Museveni to continue leading this nation as the country still has challenges that need serious managers to solve.

The colorful function was attended by, among others, the Minister of Tourism, Wild Life and Heritage, Ms. Maria Mutagamba.
