A Sikh believes in one immortal being and ten great Guru’s and is connected with Punjab region where this monotheistic religion is spread the most.

One of the things he later said for his father is that he was “an often drunk Sikh priest.”

He got himself appointed as a senior pastor in 1990. He was very popular amiongst the congregation because of his preaching abbilities. During the time he was one of the leaders, the New Creation Church congregation grew very much in means of the largening number of  her members. This number continues to widen and continues to grow daily since the new time is bringing much more questions.
