Tulsa, Oklahoma – The global family of the Pentecostal World Fellowship extends its deepest condolences to the families, members, ministers, and leadership of the Community of Pentecostal Churches in Central Africa (CEPAC).

On Sunday, January 14, our brothers and sisters in Christ were the victims of a bombing committed during their worship service in the church of the 8th Community of Pentecostal Churches in Central Africa (CEPAC) in Kasindi, in the territory of Beni in North Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo.

We echo the call of many worldwide for all Congolese society actors to unite and continue the arduous yet fruitful work of peace. Our Lord Jesus Christ reminds mankind in Mathew 5:9 that “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” and Hebrews 12:14 encourages us to “…strive for peace with everyone.”

As we join in prayer around the world on behalf of our Congolese brothers and sisters, let us pray the words of Jude 1:2 over them:

“May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.”
