The Dunkwa Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle John Osei Amaniampong, on Friday, May 12, 2017, dedicated the Denkyira Obuasi assembly church building in Jameso Nkwanta District.
Present to assist the Area Head was the District Minister, Overseer Yeboah Koranteng Jnr, and the pastorate in the Area.
The Denkyira Obuasi assembly was opened in 1960 by members of Dankwakrom assembly under the leadership of the late Elder James Tettey. The then chief of the town and Adontenhene of Denkyira Traditional Area, the late Nana Kwame Kwanning II, gave the parcel of land to the church in 1998 for a permanent church building.
The project was funded through local fund, district supports, grants from the Area and the Headquarters. It was constructed at a cost of GH¢63, 333.
Preaching at the service on the topic, “Be An Example Of Christ In Prayer” quoted from Matthew 21:12-13, the Ayanfuri District Minister, Pastor Samuel Acquah, encouraged the members to use the church building as a house of prayer instead of travelling to prayer centres for prayer support.
He further explained that the owner of the church is Christ and the purpose of the church is to pray.
He encouraged members to build their personal devotional lives and seek the face of God by themselves, saying, “People who pray are bold to confront the pressures of the world, powers and principalities; they also receive the mysteries of God and have fellowship with Him.”
The Area Head, Apostle John Osei Amaniampong, urged believers to guard themselves from false prophets and self-style ‘men of God’ who have taken over the airwaves in this postmodern world. He said the so-called prophets speak lies, cause fear and panic in the people, bringing division and disunity in families due to their parochial interest.
He led the congregation in prayer where six members received the baptism of the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues.
