The Winneba Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Samuel Otu-Appiah, has dedicated the Bethel Assembly church building in the Apam District of the Church.
The colourful ceremony was held on Friday, March 10, 2023 much to the delight of members of the Assembly who came in their numbers to witness the historic event.
During the ceremony, Pastor Ishmael Bartels Annan, the Otsew-Jukwa District Minister, exhorted the congregation on the topic: “The Value of the House of God” with reference to Psalms 122:1.
In his message, Pastor Annan expressed concern about the growing reluctance of some contemporary Christians to attend evening services and encouraged them to follow the example of the Israelites, who placed high value on their temples, priests, and offerings.
He further enumerated the benefits of attending the house of God, including acquiring spiritual and supernatural strength, having divine encounters and visitations, and accessing the ways of God.
“The church building is the house of the Lord God Almighty where most people encounter Him and receive breakthroughs,” he emphasised.
Apostle Otu-Appiah added that wherever believers gather in the house of God, the Lord God Almighty is present. He also noted that the devil knows the importance of the house of God and seeks to prevent people from attending.
Present at the event were Pastor Bismark Aidan, the Apam District Minister, a cross-section of the Area pastorate, as well as officers and members of the Apam District.
