Detectives investigate Kent pastor over alleged Rwanda genocide crimes

    The 63 year old was quoted by the Daily Mirror as saying the claims were “ridiculous” and he was “confident” the inquiry would vindicate him.


    He told the newspaper: “To be clear, the investigation is welcome. I’m very happy about it and I have been waiting for it.”

    - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
