The Cape Coast Area Head and Executive Council Member of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Samuel Yaw Antwi, has dedicated church buildings for three assemblies of the Kissi District in the Cape Coast Area.
The assemblies are Dompoase, Mt. Zion and Kokwaado. The buildings were dedicated on Wednesday, June 9, 2021.
Speaking on the theme: “Praising God for His Presence in the Church” with 2 Chronicles 5:13-14 and 2 Corinthians 6:18-19 as scripture references, the Dominase District Minister, Pastor Felix Zee-Seshie, explained that the act of dedication transforms a person from ordinary to a divine status. This, according to him, is because anytime one dedicates their life to God, He comes to dwell in them.
He, therefore, charged the members to commit to following God as people who carry His presence because He lives in them.
He further stated that the act of dedication elicits the glory of God, saying that “if we want to experience the Glory of God as a Church, we must endeavour to sanctify ourselves.”
Pastor Zee-Seshie urged members to spend time with God in prayer to be always filled with the Holy Spirit, for He is the one who empowers them, helps them to maintain God’s glory in the church, live righteous lives and enables them to understand the word of God and identify false teachings.
In his remarks, Apostle Antwi praised the Kissi District Minister, Pastor Ernest Boakye-Anto, and the entire members for the wonderful work done in ensuring the successful completion of all the church buildings.
He also encouraged them to get involved in the ongoing tree-planting exercise to restore the depleting forest cover of the country while beautifying the environment.
He also admonished them to avoid the indiscriminate cutting down of trees to preserve the environment.
The Chief of Kissi thanked the Area Head for his support in ensuring the completion of the projects, which have given the community a facelift. He also advised the members to embark on massive soul-winning drives to fill the three buildings.
He charged parents to invest in the education of their wards so that they would become responsible adults and members of society.
The dedication ceremony was attended by the pastorate in the Cape Coast Area, the District Executive Committee members, traditional leaders of the community, and member of the Kissi District.
