National Chairman/Chairman of Conference of UEC visits Rumuomasi township superintendency
The United Evangelical Church (founded as Qua Iboe Church) is enjoying a spiritual renaissance under the leadership of the national Chairman/ Chairman of Conference, Rev. Samuel Udeme Ebukiba. The church, which was founded in 1886 by a Scottish missionary, late Rev. Samuel Bill, has existed for about 132 years. Amongst other things that United Evangelical Church is known for, is her affirmation of faith in the supreme authority and sufficiency of the Holy Scripture as the word of God. Additionally, there is the eternal oneness in the Godhead of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and the love of God to the world, as manifested in the gift of His son. The cardinal belief of UEC is the necessity of repentance and redemption from sin through the propitiatory sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The United Evangelical Church has experienced several leaderships at her apex body-National Conference. Remarkable about such leaderships is that of Rev. S. U. Ebukiba, who was elected on December 7, 2017 during the 130th Annual National Conference of the church as the 28th National Chairman of the church. There is no better time than now for this Eket born (Akwa Ibom State) Clergy gentleman to have ascended the highest ecclesiastical and administrative stool of one of the oldest churches in the South-south, Nigeria.
Tremendous landmarks have been recorded, which are traceable to Ebukiba’s administrative prowess. Members of the church, both within and in Diaspora, have attested to the fact that Ebukiba’s emergence, as the National Chairman is nothing but divine orchestration.
Born 53 years ago, Rev. S. U. Ebukiba had his primary education at the prestigious Qua Iboe Church Primary School, Ekpene in Afaha Eket, Eket local government area, Akwa Ibom State. He proceeded to Government Secondary School, Afaha Eket, Eket LGA. The burning desire to be God’s instrument for divine purpose prompted him to enroll at Samuel Bill Theological College, Abak, where he bagged Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Ministerial Studies.
His quest for more knowledge in his calling pushed him to study and acquire Bachelor of Theology (BTh) and Masters of Theology (MTh) from Full Gospel School of Theology.
It is worthy of note that both the church’s vision statement, which is “to be a purposeful Bible-based church, united in worship and service to God and humanity, holistically towards rapture” and the mission statement, which is “to glorify God and reach the unreached for Christ through Evangelism and mission, equipping and empowering the saints and embarking on social action for the benefit of mankind”, serve as the life wire for the occupant of the apex office of United Evangelical Church (UEC).
His deep desire for the growth and expansion of God’s kingdom through UEC cannot permit the National Chairman to assume a “comfort-zone” kind of leadership. His purpose-driven disposition cum choleric make-up activated his 2019 round of official visits to 20 Area conferences, 11 Township superintendencies, 6 Township Districts and 5 Autonomous Congregations across the country.
