According to online reports,The church named Gabola is said to be owned by 52-year-old Bishop Tsietsi Makiti who says that the congregants at the Church have also been given a go-ahead to drink alcohol during services.
Bishop Makiti’s church has witnessed its membership rocket to over 500 members in just under two months due to the beer baptization,
According to him, he was motivated by the scriptures narrating how Jesus changed water to wine.
“People who drink and get baptized by beer are happy and peaceful. This means they are living in the shadow of God, he added.
The church accommodates people who are not welcome at other churches.
Its name ‘Gabola’ is the Tswana word for drinking. There is only one branch at the moment but the Bishop is looking forward to expanding it further.
