The Cape Coast Area and Executive Council Member of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Samuel Y. Antwi, has dedicated the newly-constructed place of residence to house the Area Head of the soon-to-be inaugurated Twifo Praso Area.
The one-story manse has six bedrooms, a kitchen, a storeroom, and a hall with en-suite facilities.
The dedication service, which took place on Tuesday, November 17, 2020, at the Twifo Praso Asikafo Assembly auditorium.
Speaking on the topic “A Glorious Church; A House of Prayer,” based on Matthew 21:12-14, Apostle S. Y. Antwi explained that “it has always been the desire of God to dwell among men. In the Old Testament, He dwelt in tents and temples built by men, but in these days He dwells in the hearts of all who believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ.”
According to him, the purpose for constructing church edifices is for the gathering and edification of the saints, however, the believer’s body is the true temple of the Lord. “Our bodies are the temples of the Lord, therefore, let us keep our bodies pure, without spot or wrinkle, so that the church of God may be glorious,” he stressed.
He further noted that the church should be a house of prayer, a spiritual clinic, and a place of spiritual refreshment for believers to refill themselves and go back into the world to be the light and salt of the earth.
Pastor Kwasi Bukari (Chairman of the Area Mission House Building Committee) noted that the project was accomplished through financial support from the Headquarters of the church, the Assin Foso Area, the Twifo Praso District, and some benevolent individuals.
In attendance were the Assin Fosu Area Head, Apostle Sylvester Arhin, all the Area Heads under the Central Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) of the church, and the pastorate in the Area.
