Rev. Pastor Ephrem Karuranga

Contrary to Apostles Paul and Peter from the Bible who could only offer healing, Rev. Pastor Ephrem Karuranga, the head of the Pentecostal Church in Rwanda or ADEPR has told a congregation that they have the money as well.

ADEPR has for years been embroiled in scandals and its top leaders were only recently acquitted by court on financial impropriety. Karuranga was not among them.

The National Unity and Reconciliation Commission (NURC) has even reported ADEPR to the Senate accusing it of engaging in practices that undermine national cohesion.

Rev. Past Karuranga was speaking this past Sunday at a concert for its followers, and in DOVE Hotel, the same facility for which ADEPR leaders nearly tore each other up over who should control it.

“We are not like Peter and John, because we have the money and the Holy Spirit as well,” he said referring to the biblical story in Acts 3 when Peter and John encountered a crippled man.

When the lame man saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money.

Peter is said to have responded: “Look at us! “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”

The man was healed immediately. He went with the Apostles into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God.

The Holy Nation Choir’s free concert that took place yesterday was dubbed “YADAH”, a Hebrew word

The Holy Nation Choir’s free concert that took place yesterday was dubbed “YADAH”, which in Hebrew means praising Lord whenever you remember what God has done for you.

“Our aim is to spread the Gospel of God, not to make money from it,” Said Athanase Ruzibiza, leader of the Holy Nation Choir, which spent Rwf7m just this concert.

Though there are no specific national figures, ADEPR could be one of the biggest religious groups in Rwanda. Its leaders have said previously that they have about 2m followers, from the 12m population.

ADEPR is also said to be the widest reaching church, appearing in nearly every cell one of the 2,148 Cells.
