The Methodist Church Nigeria, on Sunday, enthroned Rt Rev Nkechi Nwosu as its first female bishop of the Church in Nigeria.
Rev Nwosu was enthroned by His Grace, Most Rev Dr Joseph Nnonah, Archbishop of Kaduna at the Christ Methodist Cathedral, Jos.
The new bishop while speaking with newsmen said:
“God is using what has happened in the Methodist Church, Nigeria to tell the whole world that the time to release women to fulfill their destiny has come.”
She spoke on God’s purpose of creating both man and woman.
The new Bishop said:
“God knew that creating only Adam, He will not be able to bring his heart’s desire, so He had to make the woman to complement him.
“So, for the word of God to reach to the end of the world, ‘man must put their hands together to serve God,’ irrespective of gender, because God is a spirit.
“He is not a flesh, the flesh we are seeing is just for our comfort, as He said that everybody who believes in Him and is led by the spirit of God is the son of God.
“And so every child of God who is born again and dwell in the Holy Spirit is a son of God.
“And when men or women of God in charge of denominations understand this, I believe we will conquer more for the Lord than what we have done.”
