The Methodist Church has not taken a stand on the issue of Fiji being a secular state.

This after a former president of the church, Reverend TomasiKanailagi told the congregation, during its annual conference currently underway in Suva, that they should put God first and not Fiji First.

The General Secretary at Methodist Church Rev TevitaNawarda said it was Rev Kanailagi’s personal opinion.

“Churches preaching is always that God should be first. He was just commenting that there is this party that is calling on Fiji to be First and he is saying, no, for us Christians it’s always God first.”

Rev Kanailagi also told members present that he believed Fiji should be a Christian state.

However, Rev Nawadrasaid the Methodist church does not share this view.
