A glorious service has been held to welcome Apostle Anthony Eghan Kwasi Ekuban, as the new Suhum Area Head of The Church of Pentecost.
The event which was officiated by Apostle Samuel Antwi, the Kasoa Area Head, was held on Sunday, September 10, 2017, at the Suhum Central Assembly Auditorium.
It was attended by loved ones of the Ekuban family, including representatives from their previous stations.
Speaking at the service on the topic, “The Purpose of Ascension Gift, the Role of the Minister,” Apostle Samuel Antwi said that some believers find it difficult to comprehend God’s word because the power of the Holy Spirit is not manifested in their lives. “The eyes need to be enlightened in the knowledge of God’s word,” he posited.
Dwelling on Ephesians 4:11-16 as his Bible text, the Kasoa Area Head noted that the ascension gifts are given to equip the saints for works of service so that the Body of Christ may be built up.
Apostle Antwi elucidated that the resurrection power and the ascension power are key in Christian ministry and that when effectively used there is no need for Christians to entertain fear.
He noted that when a person accepts Christ, he is given the power to overcome the world. He, therefore, admonished Christians to live holy life since it is only sin that can make them powerless.
Interspersing the sermon with personal testimonies, Apostle Antwi stressed the need for Christians to know the power they wield in Christ and exercise them accordingly.
He observed that erroneous sermons are being preached, especially on the airwaves and that Christians need to be circumspect in what they listen to.
According to him, Christian leaders should focus on imparting the doctrine of Christ to their congregation, saying, “We need to ascertain that what we teach is based on biblical principles.”
He refuted the claim, “Once save, forever saved,” because it takes only grace and the Holy Spirit to see a person through to the end.
Apostle A. E. K. Ekuban is married to Mrs Jennifer Ekuban. He was called into the full-time ministry of The Church of Pentecost in 1986 and has since served in the following places: Nsawkaw, Nkrankwanta, Sunyani West, New Tafo-Kumasi, Tanzania, Wa, Goaso and Anyaa Ablekuma. He took over from Apostle Mike Etrue, who has been transferred to Kaneshie Area.
