    ‘Repent for the Kingdom of God is nigh’

    - ZION Christian Church (ZCC) leader, Dr Bishop Nehemiah Mutendi has implored sinners to turn to the Lord nomatter how many times they have transgressed.
    Dr Bishop Mutendi said this when he delivered his sermon on the last day of the annual Easter Conference at the majestic religious tourist centre, Mbungo Hall where over 100 000 people from all over the world converged.
    The Bishop urged people not to be ashamed of their sins and emulate the Biblical Mary Magdalene, who despite her sins and society shunning her, repented and became one of the leading lights of the Church.
    He said there is no sin that is unforgivable before the Lord.
    "I urge you all whose ways are not according to God's expectations to repent .You all deserve to be saved. Mary Magdalene was a harlot, one of the worst sins before God but she was one of the people who were there at the resurrection of Jesus Christ after being forgiven," said Bishop Mutendi.
    He said the person who has repented always pleases God noting that where one person repents the Heavens rejoice.
    "We were happy with the procession as we marked the resurrection of Jesus Christ, today we are all celebrating the defeat of death as demonstrated by His (Jesus') rise. Easter Sunday is a very important day for the Zionists.
    "I urge elders and other fellow Zionists to keep shepherding the new converts so that they know our church doctrine and remain prayerful. Satan is not happy when he sees people repenting, he feels threatened. That is why we say new Zionists have to be baptised straight away from here," he said.
    The conference saw dozens of ZCC converts being baptised on the same day.
    The procession saw Dr Bishop Mutendi taken round the multimillion dollar church building which is a religious tourism centre in a vehicle with more than 100 000 congregates ululating and waving church flags in a unison.
    The Easter conference started on Friday and ended on Sunday with delegates from Lesotho, Zambia, South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Malawi, United States of America(USA) and other African and international congregants also attending.local news
