One of the biggest Pentecostal churches in Nigeria, Deeper Christian Life Ministry, popularly known as Deeper Life has cautioned its members against bringing the church into politics.
The church noted it is a faith-based organization with no intention of supporting any political party.
News Agency of Nigeria reported the church overseer in Niger state, Pastor Toyin Araromi made it clear the church will not involve itself in politics of any nature.
The Pastor said this while answering questions which arose from the role the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Kumuyi played during the Independence Day anniversary in Abuja.
Pastor Araromi said, “Our General Superintendent was invited to minister at the Independent Day celebration and he honoured the invitation.
“He also had the honour of visiting Mr President in his ministerial capacity. All that he did is what a godly leader should do.
“Recently too, on October 7, the Lagos State Government organised its own form of the 58th Independence celebration at the Deeper Life headquarters in Gbagada, Lagos, which was attended by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and other dignitaries.
“According to the Bible, we should give honour to whom honour is due and we are giving honour to whom honour is due.
“We are not members of any political organisation. Deeper Life is neutral. We encourage our members to pray for whosoever is on the throne instead of criticising the government, because it is scriptural to do so,” he concluded.
