The Church of Pentecost Evangelism Ministry Gets New Bus

The Evangelism Ministry of The Church of Pentecost has acquired a Toyota Coaster 30-seater Bus for use during outreach events and for transportation purposes.

The vehicle, valued at GHS 1,182,385.24, was dedicated on Tuesday, August 29, 2023, by Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh, the Director of Pentecost Men’s Ministry (PEMEM) and an Executive Council Member of the Church, on behalf of the Chairman.

During the dedication of the bus, Apostle Anane Denteh referred to Matthew 6:32 to illustrate that the Christian calling is closely linked with labouring in the kingdom of God.

According to him, “Prioritising the Kingdom implies aligning one’s spiritual, physical, financial, as well as temporal and energetic aspects of life with the divine purpose.”

Apostle Anane Denteh praised the Evangelism Ministry Director, Apostle Jimmy Markin, and the National Executive Committee of the ministry for their commendable efforts in leading many towards a saving knowledge of Christ.

He further emphasised that the responsibility of evangelism lies collectively with the Church. Therefore, each member of the Church should contribute to the Church’s soul-winning efforts.

He then pronounced God’s blessings upon the leadership of the Evangelism Ministry and prayed that the newly acquired bus give impetus to the ministry’s work as intended.

Present at the dedication were Apostle Ebenezer Hagan (Youth Ministry Director), Mrs. Philomena Mireku (Women’s Ministry Director), Pastor Adjei Nimako Darkwa (Kaneshie District Minister and National Secretary, Evangelism Ministry), and Pastor Frank Awuah Fordjour (Agape District Minister and Crusade Coordinator, Evangelism Ministry).

Also in attendance were Elder Adjei Sakyi (Transport Manager, CoP-Headquarters), Elder Albert Narh (Coopted NEC Member, Evangelism Ministry), and Elder Alfred Parry (Assistant Leader, Madina Area Evangelism Ministry/Coordinator, Evangelism Ministry Music Committee).


Jesus Is The Only Hope For Dead Situations web

Jesus Is The Only Hope For Dead Situations – Apostle Dr. Markin Declares

Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin, the Director of the Evangelism Ministry of The Church Of Pentecost, declared that Jesus is the only hope for dead situations.

Speaking on the sermon titled: “Lazarus Shall Rise Again,” on Friday, August 25, 2023, at the recently held “Greater Kumasi For Christ” Crusade at the forecourt of the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi, Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin noted that when all hope is lost, it is only Jesus that can revive situations.

Drawing inspiration from John 11:1-5 and 20-26, he unveiled the timeless message of hope and restoration embedded within the narrative of Lazarus.

With profound insights, the Evangelism Ministry Director delved into the intricate story of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus—intimate friends of Jesus—who faced the heart-wrenching reality of Lazarus’ passing.

He poignantly revealed, “They raised Lazarus for their future survival; he was their puppet, their hope for the future.” This narrative served as a touching reminder of how the adversary’s strategies often plunge people into darkness and despair, employing tactics of destruction, theft, and death.

Apostle Markin deftly paralleled the challenges of Mary and Martha to contemporary spiritual battles.

He compassionately noted how the devil subtly ensnares individuals, leading them away from their spiritual vigour and purpose.

However, he emphatically reassured the congregation, “With Jesus, your ‘Lazarus’ will rise again!”

“In the midst of their profound distress, Jesus intervened in the lives of Mary and Martha,” he added.

Apostle Markin beautifully highlighted, “Jesus comes in when all your hope is gone, when every joy is shut. Though the devil seeks to steal, kill, and destroy, Jesus comes to offer life—abundant and overflowing.”

Reflecting on John 11:14, Apostle Markin showcased the moment when Jesus declared, “Your brother, no matter how decomposed he is, will rise again!”

This proclamation resounded with the message that Christ has the power to infuse hope and restoration into the most seemingly hopeless situations.

Apostle Markin shared the two reasons behind Jesus’ tears in this poignant story.

“First, He wept because of His boundless love for every individual, regardless of their background or actions,” he expounded.

“Second, His tears revealed His observation that people struggled to believe.”

Drawing a powerful analogy, he urged listeners to remove the metaphorical stones of doubt, unbelief, and self-righteousness that hinder their spiritual growth.


Prayer Is The Indispensable Tool For Restoring God’s Blessings WEB

Prayer Is The Indispensable Tool For Restoring God’s Blessings – Elder Tobbin Asserts

Elder Dr. Samuel Amo Tobbin of the Dr. Thomas Wyatt Assembly of The Church Of Pentecost has asserted that prayer is the indispensable tool for restoring God’s blessings on Christians.

He made this assertion today at the Pentecost International Worship Centre, Asokwa during the morning session of Day 2 of the “Greater Kumasi For Christ” Crusade.

With Genesis 1:27-28 as a biblical foundation, Elder Tobbin illuminated the omnipresent blessings bestowed upon humanity by God.

In his sermon, Elder Tobbin emphasised that the absence of visible wonders does not equate to the absence of God’s blessings.

Drawing a parallel to the intangible yet undeniable components of human existence—the spirit and soul—he revealed that blessings from God are steadfast companions throughout life’s journey.

“Blessings from God are noy always outwardly manifest, but they journey with us, unseen yet powerful,” he affirmed.

Drawing insights from Romans 3:23 and John 11:41-43, Elder Tobbin, who is also the Chairman of the Tobbinco Group of Companies, delved into the spiritual implications of sin.

He stated that when humanity succumbed to sin, the once-flourishing blessings were withdrawn. However, through embracing Christ, one is redeemed from curses and liberated from the shackles of sin.

“Embracing Christ ushers in a transformative freedom, liberating you from the chains of curses,” he charged.

“As a Christian, accepting Jesus Christ into your life propels you into a realm of freedom,” Elder Tobbin noted.

Reflecting on John 11:41-42, Elder Tobbin marveled at Jesus’ power to summon Lazarus from the spirit realm into the physical.

“Restoration is not confined to mere retrieval; it involves breathing life into the lifeless. Prayer is the conduit to revitalize the dormant,” he expounded.

Elder Tobbin stressed that prayer transcends mere request—it is a proclamation.

Drawing from the biblical truth that life and death reside in the power of the tongue, he encouraged believers to speak life into their circumstances.

“Prayer becomes an indispensable tool in the journey of restoring blessings,” he affirmed.


Only Jesus Christ Is Accredited To Free You From Bondage web

Only Jesus Christ Is Accredited To Free You From Bondage – Apostle Dzemekey

Apostle Peter Kofi Dzemekey, the Asokwa Area Head of The Church Of Pentecost, has emphatically proclaimed that exclusive authority rests with Jesus Christ to bring life to even the most lifeless situations.

“The Word of God possesses the profound ability to disentangle you from the clutches of death and its snares. It possesses the power to shatter every chain!” declared Apostle Dzemekey.

These powerful assertions were made during the evening session of Day 3 at the ‘Greater Kumasi For Christ’ Crusade, currently ongoing at the Heroes Park, located at the forecourt of the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Drawing from the scripture in John 11:27-43, Apostle Dzemekey expounded that when Jesus addressed the lifeless body of Lazarus, his words held the power to evoke life, leading to Lazarus’s miraculous resurrection.

Highlighting the story of Martha and Lazarus, Apostle Dzemekey illuminated how Martha perceived Jesus’ arrival as belated. However, he clarified that this apparent delay was orchestrated for the optimal moment of Lazarus’s salvation.

 “God sometimes deliberately postpones our circumstances to ensure that we emerge with the maximum impact,” he stated.

Continuing, he stressed Martha’s inability to comprehend Jesus’ actions. Yet, Jesus assured her of Lazarus’s restoration.

“Jesus’ command for the stone to be rolled away was founded on His exclusive authority over that stone. Neither spirit nor human can roll away the stones binding our lives. Only one Man is endowed with the accreditation to liberate you,” Apostle Dzemekey affirmed.

As he concluded, Apostle Dzemekey emphasised the enduring significance of the name of Jesus.

“Though countless great names have faded into history, the name of Jesus remains eternal. Jesus is unceasing, unretired, and immutable—unchanged yesterday, today, and forever,” he said.


Repentance & Holiness In God Brings Restoration web

Repentance & Holiness In God Brings Restoration – Apostle Adjei-Kwarteng

Apostle Yaw Adjei-Kwarteng, the Coordinator of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Committee (ARCC) and an Executive Council Member of The Church of Pentecost, has emphasised that genuine repentance and holiness in God lead to spiritual restoration.

Addressing a gathering of believers today at the Pentecost International Worship Centre, Asokwa, in Kumasi, during the morning session of the ongoing ‘Greater Kumasi For Christ’ Crusade, Apostle Adjei-Kwarteng, also the Bomapata Area Head of The Church, stated that Christians can mimic Christ’s character through repentance and holiness.

Speaking on the topic: “The Restoration of The Character of Christ: A Call To Repentance And Holiness,” with scripture references from 1 Peter 15:16 and 2 Chronicles 7:13-18, the Bompata Area Head said that restoration signifies God’s intervention in aiding His people.

Quoting Numbers 6:26-27, he noted the profound impact of God’s illuminating presence, which is akin to His face shining upon individuals.

He drew a parallel between the hiding of God’s glory due to human sin and the subsequent closure of the heavens, leading to spiritual famine and adversity.

Apostle Adjei-Kwarteng further explained that the withdrawal of God’s favor comes before restoration, stating that, “This withdrawal serves as a precursor to a time of famine, plague, and hunger—a period when nothing appears to flourish in one’s life.”

Using the analogy of sunshine and photosynthesis, he conveyed that just as sunlight is necessary for life on earth, God’s favour is essential for spiritual vitality.

The ARCC Coordinator also underscored the significance of the Church’s return to the path of righteousness and godliness.

According to him, genuine adoration of God and His blessings requires a transformation within the Church society.

“Restoration takes place when the Church re-embraces the ways of righteousness, thus drawing closer to God’s intended purpose,” he remarked.

The Bompata Area Head also elaborated on the dual nature of repentance—both a one-time renewal of the mind and an ongoing process.

He referenced 1 John 1:8-10, emphasizing that the presence of godliness is crucial for restoration within the Church.

“Mimicking God’s character is principal; it aligns us with His divine attributes,” he asserted.

Exploring the concept of holiness, Apostle Kwarteng used James 1:13-16 as a basis to explain God’s absolute purity and separation from evil.

“God does not look at any standard to determine his Holiness. He is the standard!,” he reiterated.


The Power Of God Is Still At Work web

The Power Of God Is Still At Work – Prophet Samuel Tetteh Doku Declares

Prophet Samuel Tetteh Doku, the New Tafo Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, has asserted that Christians can rise above life challenges and obstacles because the omnipotent power of God is still at work and available to them.

Prophet Doku made this assertion at the Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC), Asokwa, during the morning session of Day 2 of the “Greater Kumasi For Christ” Crusade, which began yesterday, August 22, 2023 at the Heroes Park, Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Speaking on the topic: “The Power Of Signs, Wonders And Miracles”, Prophet Doku reminded Christians of the divine order that governs each season of life.

With references to Mark 16:15-20, Acts 1:8, and Hebrews 2:1-4, he expounded on the dual nature of power, as described by Jesus Christ.

Prophet Doku elucidated two distinct types of power: the “delegated power” and the “Dunamis.”

According to him, delegated power, likened to the liberty and right to wield authority, is received upon accepting Jesus Christ into one’s life.

Drawing from John 1:10-12, he elaborated on this authority as the “power to become.”

Expounding further, he introduced the concept of Dunamis—a Greek term signifying power that reproduces itself, akin to a dynamo.

Prophet Doku highlighted how the Dunamis holds the potential to dismantle the works of the devil, as evidenced in 1 John 3:5-8.

The New Tafo Area Head further stated that Jesus Christ’s purpose on earth was to eradicate human sin and to dismantle the devil’s schemes.

Throughout his sermon, Prophet Doku referenced the book of Acts as a living testament to the enduring presence of the Holy Spirit’s power.

He noted that the Acts of the Holy Spirit continue to manifest through the demonstration of signs and wonders in the Church.

He also touched on the effectiveness of this power, narrating instances from Acts 3:1-7 and 8:5.

Prophet Doku emphasised that the power of Jesus Christ is the liberating force needed to break the chains of bondage imposed by the devil.

He then cited the compelling story of Dorcas from Acts 9:36-42, highlighting that the power of God remains omnipotent and accessible to all believers.

 “There is an overflow of great joy when that power is exercised. Because of this power, many believe in the Lord,” he said.

In attendance were Apostles Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, (General Secretary), Yaw Adjei Kwarteng (RCC Coordinator – Ashanti Region), Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin (Evangelism Ministry Director), John Obeng Kesse (Suame Area Head), Dr. Joseph I.T. Bueryey (Resident Minister, PIWC Asokwa), Daniel Nsaful (Effiduase Area Head), J. B. K. Tawiah (Kwadaso Area Head), Peter Dzamekey (Asokwa Area Head), John Appiah Aidoo (Abuakwa Area Head) and Kingsley Addai (Resident Minister, PIWC Kokomlemle).

Also present were Elders Dr. Ken Aboah, Dr. Ubor Tossan Konja VI (Paramount Chief of the Kpassa Traditional Area), Dr. Nana K. Gyasi, Prof. Seth Yaw Peasah (El Bethel Prayer Centre), Dr. Bismark Amoah (Bohye Prayer Centre), Paul Asante (Ejisu Prayer Centre) and Godfred Asare (El Shaddai Prayer Centre).

The “Greater Kumasi For Christ Crusade continues this evening at the Heroes Park, Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.


Make A Resolute Decision To Turn To Christ web

Make A Resolute Decision To Turn To Christ – Apostle Dr. Jimmy Markin

Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin, the Evangelism Ministry Director of The Church of Pentecost, has assured that God’s arms are open wide, ready to receive and restore anyone who comes to Him in humility.

He has, therefore, called on all individuals, particularly unbelievers, to make a resolute decision to turn to Christ amidst the myriad distractions vying for people’s attention in the contemporary world.

The Evangelism Director made this passionate appeal during the opening day of the much-anticipated “Greater Kumasi For Christ” crusade at Heroes Park, in the forecourt of the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi, Ashanti Region, Ghana.

In his sermon, Apostle Dr. Markin highlighted the boundless mercies, love, kindness, and favour that God bestows, irrespective of one’s past.

Emphasising the transformative power of accepting Jesus into one’s life, the Evangelism Director affirmed the promise of salvation, healing, and deliverance, ultimately leading to eternal life.

Referencing Exodus 3:3-4 and John 3:14-18, he drew a parallel from the life of Moses, expounding on the remarkable journey of destiny.

“From a royal upbringing as a Prince of Pharaoh, Moses’ identity underwent a significant shift. His priestly robes were exchanged for the attire of a shepherd, his mode of travel changed from horseback to wandering the desert,” he said.

Apostle Dr. Markin underscored Moses’ 40-year period of obscurity and uncertainty, which, according to him, was a consequence of the weight of sin he bore.

He further recounted how God persistently sought Moses’ attention by igniting a burning bush.

Apostle Dr. Markin reminded listeners that all individuals, born of woman, carry the innate nature of sin. He, however, noted that God’s grace is a beacon of hope, even for those who feel lost, unworthy, or burdened by incurable afflictions.

The Evangelism Director stressed that God’s season of renewal extends to all, saying: “This season is characterised by divine grace and favour, where God seeks to reconcile sinners to Himself, not based on their transgressions.”

The “Greater Kumasi For Christ” Crusade began on August 22, 2023, and is expected to end with a medical screening on Saturday, August 26, 2023, at Heroes Park.

Preaching at the event, the Evangelism Ministry Director of the Church, Apostle Amos Jimmy Markin, said that God’s arms are open wide, ready to receive and restore anyone who comes to Him in humility.

He has, therefore, called on all individuals, particularly unbelievers, to make a resolute decision to turn to Christ.

Adabraka District's Weeklong Rescue Mission Yields 215 Souls1 web

Adabraka District’s Weeklong “Rescue Mission” Yields 215 Souls

Two hundred and fifteen people accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour during a weeklong evangelism outreach organised by the Adabraka District of The Church of Pentecost.

The event, dubbed “Rescue Mission,” also saw 126 people being baptised in water, with 23 others receiving Holy Ghost baptism.

The Rescue Mission campaign was unlike any other in the district, with multiple evangelistic campaigns including house-to-house, school and market outreaches, two simultaneous rallies at Obra Spot (Circle) and CMB market (Accra Central), and a massive one-on-one evangelism exercise by all members of the Church on Sunday.

Two evening prayer sessions and one all-night service were also held under the theme “The Lord Needs You” Luke 19:29-31.

The souls won were mobilised and baptised the same night of the rallies, followed immediately by prayer for Holy Ghost baptism. Some who were possessed were liberated by the power of the Holy Ghost during the session.

The new converts were taken through the New Converts’ Class on Sunday morning to establish them in the Christian faith.

In an interview with PENTECOST NEWS, Elder John Addae Ansah, the Chairman of the Rescue Mission 23 Committee, assured that plans are underway to retain the souls won, adding that, those desiring to learn a trade will be assisted in learning any trade of their choice.

“We are going to work earnestly to ensure that the many souls we have baptised are retained in the Church. They have different needs, some are spiritual, physical, and financial, among others, and we are trusting God to meet their needs through our members,” he said.

For his part, the District Minister, Pastor Emmanuel Osei Agyapong, was grateful to God for the unprecedented feat.

“The outcome is unprecedented. Winning over 200 souls, baptizing almost 130 of them, and having over 104 of them at the service on Sunday is a great achievement, and we bless God for that.”

He commended the committee, officers, and the membership for their commitment towards achieving the set objectives.

“The preparation was fantastic. I believe we don’t go out without being in. We spread our net wide to cover all kinds of evangelism. I was impressed. All in all, we give glory to God. I want to acknowledge the massive effort of the Rescue Mission 23 teams. They were relentless and tireless, working day and night, and to the glory of God, we have had an excellent outreach program with less cost.

“Some massive crusades have not produced 200 souls. So if we have been able to preach the gospel in this manner at Accra Central and Circle, where people came to listen to us and gave their lives to Christ, then I think we are on course. This is the vision of our Chairman; that’s to prepare the youth and unleash them. The youth in the Church drove this campaign with the support of the fathers and mothers, and I want to commend them for their sacrifices towards this outreach.
