THE Assemblies of God in Fiji will not involve itself in any political debate but continue to uphold the significance of Christianity.

General secretary Reverend Viliame Vakasausau said the church remained apolitical but encouraged members to pray for good leadership as the country prepared for the election.

"We remain apolitical but we pray for good leaders and a good government for our nation," he said.

"We also encourage members to pray for the upcoming election and that the people decide on a good government."

Mr Vakasausau said members of the AOG Fiji church were also encouraged to vote for those who were honest and served the interest of the people.

"Apart from that, we brief our people to look for people who are honest, who are sincere and who are there not only for themselves but who are there for the good of the nation as well."

The AOG church is currently holding its special general conference in Lautoka.

The church been in Fiji for almost 80 years and recently went through structural changes. It will hold elections this week.

"We feel for some time now we have become more institutionalised.

"We are more concerned with the organisation but now we want to draw people and their attention back to the Word, especially their hunger for the Spirit of the Lord."
