Apostle Dr. Samuel Gakpetor Dedicates Emmanuel Assembly Church Building

The Agormanya Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Dr. Samuel Kojo Gakpetor, has dedicated the newly-constructed church building of Emmanuel Assembly in the Asutsuare District of The Church of Pentecost.

The building, funded through the Community Based Church Building (CBCB) grant from the Church’s Headquarters, was dedicated on Sunday, 14th April 2024.

Apostle Dr. Gakpetor was assisted by the Asutsuare District Minister, Pastor Joseph Kojo Mensah, and some ministers in the Agormanya Area, including Pastor Theodore Ashia, former Area Secretary, and Pastor Jacob Kwakye Frimpong, Area Executive member.

Also present were Mrs. Grace Gakpetor (Wife of the Agormanaya Area Head), ministers’ wives, as well as some officers in the Agormanya Area.

Speaking at the event, Apostle Dr. Gakpetor, who is also the Coordinator of the National Discipleship and Leadership Development Committee (NDLDC), acknowledged all those who have generously contributed to the project since 2013.

He noted that while having a beautiful edifice is good, it is equally important for the worshippers to be holy, emphasizing that sin is a reproach and brings destruction.

Expounding on the topic “Breaking the Barriers of Reaching Out to All People” with reference to John 4:7, 10-24, he explained that just as Jesus broke barriers and spoke to the Samaritan woman, Christians must also break all barriers and spread the gospel to all creatures.

He cautioned against tribalism in the Church, emphasizing that through Christ, all have been made one.

“Jesus broke religious, social, and cultural stereotypes in order to minister to the Samaritan woman, as a result, the Samaritan woman became a blessing to her community.

“When we break barriers and minister to such neglected people, they become the vessels through which the gospel reaches their kind. The fact that God loves everyone should motivate us to reach all manner of persons with the gospel without prejudice,” he stressed.

He urged the gathering to use the edifice for its intended purpose, as a place where they would come for strength and receive godly teachings to impact their communities and preach the gospel.

The Emmanuel Assembly church building project also received a grant from the Agormanya Area and offerings raised by the Local Assembly.
