Seven persons gave their lives to Jesus Christ during the just ended Christmas convention held by the Wassa Ateiku District of The Church of Pentecost in Assin Foso Area.
Twelve new converts were baptized in water with 50 others receiving healing, deliverance and Holy Spirit baptism.
The convention, which was held under the chairmanship of the Area Head, Apostle Sylvester Arhin, and hosted by the District Minister, Pastor Solomon Kofi Edusah, took place at Wassa Ateiku from December 20 to 24, 2017, under the theme: “Jesus Christ, The Light of The World Has Been Born” (Luke 2:32).
Some of the topics treated included: “The Light of The world is Calling You,” “The Power of Light,” “The Impact of The Light on The Lives of Believers,” “The Light That Disperses Darkness Has Been Born For You,” “Walking in The Light,” and “Let The Light of The World Bring Light to You.”
Addressing the congregation to climax the convention on Sunday, December 24, Pastor Edusah based his sermon on the theme: “Following The Footsteps of Jesus Christ, The Light of The World,” and took his scripture readings from John 8:12, Ephesians 5:8-14 and 1 John 1:5-7.
He explained that Christianity is sacrifice, hence one has to decide to follow Christ all the days of his/her life. “Those who want to follow Christ should be determined to walk closely with Him all their lives,” he stressed, adding, “They also need to dedicate themselves to God and learn to be obedient to Him when the going becomes tough.”
He observed that to be able to follow the footsteps of Christ, Christians need to be upright, just and benevolent. “You must follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ if you want to be successful in life; abstain from all bad acts, show kindness to all people and learn to be just. You have been bought with the blood of Christ, so learn to live for Him all the time,” he said.
