THE Methodist Church of Fiji and Rotuma's transition from the past 50 years into the next 50 is a new birth that will see a strong spiritual awakening among its members.

Since 1964, the church has witnessed growth and its members have faced many challenges.

Yesterday, interim president Reverend Laisiasa Ratabacaca reminded them to stand firm in their faith.

Speaking to about 4000 members during the opening of the golden jubilee celebrations, Mr Ratabacaca said the church was united in thanksgiving to God in reaching its golden jubilee.

"We need to strive at all times to understand Jesus Christ thoroughly. When we know Jesus thoroughly, we will love him dearly and will at all times follow him," Mr Ratabacaca said.

"When our goals are clear it will give us the strength to persevere and to overcome challenges."

The official opening of the celebration marks the opening of the biggest Methodist Church event in the country, its annual conference and choir competition.
