A-Lang Worship Centre’s “Gospel Dinner” Yields 10 Souls

A special get-together event, dubbed “Gospel Dinner,” organised by the Evangelism Ministry of A-Lang Worship Centre of The Church of Pentecost last Sunday, yielded ten souls to the glory of God.

The event was part of the Church’s scheduled activities to mark the “November Aggressive Evangelism Month” recently observed in The Church of Pentecost nationwide.

The well-patronised event, which took place at the church premises, drew 366 participants (116 adults and 250 children), including non-members.

The patrons were treated to locally-made drinks, pastries, popcorn and some soothing gospel music.

A key feature of the event was a panel discussion led by the District Secretary, Elder Richard Boampong, during which the five-member panel, namely; Apostle Dr. Christian Tsekpoe (the Resident Minister), his wife, Mrs. Olivia Tsekpoe, Elder Nicholas Boampong, Elder Prince Asare and Deaconess Georgina Gyasi, shared their Christian conversion stories and encouraged other believers in the faith.

An altar call after the session by Elder Christopher Abbey-Quaye saw ten people surrendering their lives to Jesus Christ and another rededicating their life to Christ. Five of the new converts underwent water baptism, and three received Holy Spirit baptism.

Woman Miraculously Healed Of Ulcer After 8 Years

Woman Miraculously Healed Of Ulcer After 8 Years

Mrs. Favour Agbo, a resident of Nsakina, heard about the “Accra for Christ” crusade and decided to attend yesterday’s evening session with her husband. Little did she know that she would leave the event grounds healed of an ulcer she had been enduring for the last eight years.

Mrs. Agbo, a non-member of The Church of Pentecost, shared her story with PENTECOST NEWS after the event.

Narrating her ordeal, Favour said whenever she had a crisis, she felt severe stomach pains making life very unpleasant. According to her, the medications she received from the hospital were only to “manage” the situation.

According to Mrs. Agbo, on her way to the grounds with her husband, she felt an uneasiness usually associated with the condition but was determined to attend the event at all cost.

“When the preacher man said those who were sick should come forward to be prayed for, I went forward in faith. I closed my eyes as he prayed, and the next thing I saw was that I had fallen forcefully to the ground,” she said.

After she got up from the ground, Mrs. Agbo realised that she was feeling much better and also noticed that all the associated symptoms of the condition had left her.

The “Accra for Christ” crusade, which is under the theme: “This Same Jesus” (Acts 1:11), is being jointly held at the Nsakina M/A School Park by the Evangelism Ministry of The Church of Pentecost and the Anyaa-Ablekuma Area of the Church. The morning sessions are however held at the Oduman Central Assembly church auditorium.

Try Jesus! – Apostle Ohemeng-Kwakye To People In Despair

Try Jesus! – Apostle Ohemeng-Kwakye To People In Despair

The Anyaa-Ablekuma Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle William Ohemeng-Kwakye, has urged persons in a state of despair (hopelessness) not to give up but rather seek the Lord’s intervention.

According to Apostle Ohemeng-Kwakye, Jesus can be trusted to solve any challenge that life poses because He has a proven track record of doing the impossible.

The Anyaa-Ablekuma Area Head said this yesterday during the morning session of the ongoing “Accra for Christ” crusade held at the Oduman Central Assembly church auditorium.

Making reference to Acts 10:38 and Luke 4:18-19, among other Bible texts, the minister noted how Jesus healed many of their sicknesses, while citing the story of the woman with the issue of blood in Luke 8:43.

“The woman received her healing just by touching Jesus’ garment by faith,” he said.

The Area Head also alluded to how Jesus raised Lazarus, who had died and been buried for some days, back to life to the astonishment of many witnesses.

Apostle Ohemeng-Kwakye said that Jesus again proved that He has authority over evil spirits when He liberated Mary Magdalene from the demons that had possessed her.

The Area Head finally mentioned the miraculous event recorded in the Bible of how Jesus caused coins to appear in the mouth of a fish.

Apostle Ohemeng-Kwakye further noted that there are many miracles credited to Jesus during his relatively short life on earth and these affirm His omnipotence.

“The Jesus of the Bible is the same today and forever and is still in the business of working miracles,” he further noted.

He said that Jesus Christ came to earth to redeem humanity from every bondage, stressing: “Jesus Christ was born for our sake.”

The Area Head, therefore, urged persons overwhelmed with life issues to turn to Christ and He would give them rest. 

“No matter what your challenge is, please try Jesus. All you have to do is to surrender your life to Him and make Him the Lord of your life,” he said.

“The Pain Has Vanished!” - Woman Healed Of Protracted Chest Pain

“The Pain Has Vanished!” – Woman Healed Of Protracted Chest Pain

Mrs. Paulina Boako, a member of the Ablekuma Central Assembly of The Church of Pentecost, has been healed of a protracted chest pain she had been experiencing for the last three months.

The 59-year-old mother of three shared her testimony at yesterday’s evening session of the ongoing “Accra for Christ” crusade at the Nsakina M/A School Park in Accra.

In an interview with PENTECOST NEWS on the sidelines of the event, Mrs. Boako said whenever she felt the sharp pain in the chest, she took some painkillers, yet it did not improve. She then visited the hospital for treatment and was given some medications, but that did not help either.

“The medical officer finally gave me Amoxylclav and said that if that did not work, then I would have to undergo an X-ray scanning for further,” she said.

Unfortunately for Paulina, her condition did not improve, but she was also unable to pay for the X-ray due to financial constraints.

“So, I prayed and asked God to heal me since I could not afford the X-Ray,” she said.

Mrs. Boako came to the crusade with her daughter, still enduring the pain. 

During the service, the Evangelism Ministry Director, Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin, requested that all those who were sick and needed a divine intervention to step forward to be prayed for.

“My daughter prompted me to go forward, and I did. Right after the prayer, the pain vanished. I no longer feel any pain in my chest. I am healed. The name of the Lord be praised!” she said.

The “Accra for Christ” crusade, which is under the theme “This Same Jesus” (Acts 1:11), is being jointly held by the Evangelism Ministry of The Church of Pentecost and the Anyaa-Ablekuma Area of the Church.

Jesus Is Still Here With Us – Apostle Agyemang Bekoe Asserts

Jesus Is Still Here With Us – Apostle Agyemang Bekoe Asserts

The International Missions Director (IMD) of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Emmanuel Agyemang Bekoe, has said that Jesus is alive and lives in the hearts of all who accept Him as their Lord and personal Saviour. 

The IMD made this assertion when he preached on the theme: “This Same Jesus” at yesterday’s evening session of the “Accra for Christ” crusade at the Nsakina M/A School Park.

Delivering a sermon inspired from Acts 1:11, among other scriptural texts, Apostle Agyemang Bekoe explained that Jesus was crucified for the sins of humanity but rose on the third day. He explained that after His resurrection, Jesus told His disciples to wait for the promised Holy Spirit, after which he ascended through the clouds into heaven right before their eyes.

The minister, however, stated that although Jesus is no longer physically present on earth, He is still alive in spirit, as He assured His disciples in Matthew 28:20.

“This same Jesus, not a different man; the same one previously mentioned, is still with us from now to the very end of the age as He promised before His ascension into heaven,” he said.

He further noted that Jesus lives in and works through all who have received Him in faith to accomplish His purpose on earth.

Inferring from Luke 4:18-19, he explained that when one receives Christ, the Holy Spirit dwells in them, and thus, receive the anointing to proclaim the good news of Christ, proclaim freedom for those under the bondage of the evil one, open the eyes of those suffering from physical and spiritual blindness, and liberate the oppressed.

“Jesus comes with the favour of God, so all who associate with Him also obtain the divine favour,” he added.

The International Missions Director said that Jesus, who raised the widow’s dead son back to life in Nain (Luke 7:11-17) and straightened up the woman crippled by a spirit for 18 years (Luke 13:10-13), is the same and is still in the miracle-working business.

Apostle Agyemang Bekoe, therefore, urged all who are yet to accept Jesus Christ into their lives to surrender to Him because He is the solution to all life’s problems.

Last night, over 3,200 people participated in the ongoing crusade. Among them was Apostle Eric Nyamekye (Chairman of The Church of Pentecost), Apostle Samuel Osei Asante (Kaneshie Area Head and Executive Council Member), Prophet David Kankam Beditor (Ashaiman Area Head and Executive Council Member), Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin (Evangelism Ministry Director), and Apostle William Ohemeng-Kwankye (Anyaa-Ablekuma Area Head).

Do You Know Jesus? – Apostle Dr. Jimmy Markin Quizzes

“You have heard about Jesus several times and not really paid attention to Him. You might have heard about Him on the radio, on the television, during funeral services, or during church services. You may have even sung about Jesus and yet not know Him. Jesus is the saviour of all humankind and in Him is life.”

The above statement was the thrust of the gospel message preached by the Evangelism Ministry Director of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin, on the first day of the “Accra for Christ” crusade at the Nsakina M/A School Park.

Reading from John 5:1-15, Matthew 1:21, and Acts 10:38, Apostle Dr. Markin observed that, like the disabled man at the pool of Bethesda who was healed by Jesus, many people have no idea who Jesus is.

He explained that Jesus was the one John the Baptist described as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.

“His name, Jesus, means a saviour, and this was given to Him at birth,” he added.

He further stated that Jesus was conceived by a virgin and, to this day, remains the only person born sinless who also walked on this earth and was still without sin. While on earth, Jesus healed the sick, forgave the sins of many, and liberated many others who were held captive by the devil.

Apostle Dr. Markin further noted that Jesus gave Himself as a propitiation for the sin of humanity by dying on the cross.

“He died for our sins and went to heaven on the third. This same Jesus will come again for those who believed in Him and bring judgement upon those who did not believe in Him,” he said.

He stressed that if Jesus comes into one’s life, one receives salvation, healing, deliverance, and eternal life, among other benefits.

The Evangelism Ministry Director, therefore, called all who are yet to come to faith in Christ to do so to enjoy the immeasurable benefits in Him.

The “Accra for Christ” crusade is a four-day event being jointly organised by the Evangelism Ministry Directorate at The Church of Pentecost Headquarters and the Anyaa-Ablekuma Area of the Church. The event is under the theme: “This Same Jesus” (Acts 1:11).

Instantly Healed Of Persistent Leg Pain

Instantly Healed Of Persistent Leg Pain

Six years ago, Mrs. Evelyn Nyame Nyarko survived a car accident. Although her life was spared, Evelyn sustained severe injuries to her left leg. The pains had persisted for all these years until last night when she was miraculously healed during the opening session of the “Accra for Christ” crusade.

Mrs. Nyarko, a member of the Manhean English Assembly of The Church of Pentecost, shared the good news with the thousands gathered at the Nsakina M/A School Park for the event opening.

The four-day outreach, being jointly organised by the Evangelism Ministry of The Church of Pentecost and the Anyaa-Ablekuma Area, is under the theme: “This Same Jesus” (Acts 1:11).

Speaking to PENTECOST NEWS on the sidelines of the crusade, Mrs. Nyarko said that she had gone to town to get some supplies for her catering business when an unknown person pushed her into the path of an oncoming vehicle. 

“The bus knocked me down, and I was caught underneath the vehicle, but the driver was unaware of what had happened, until some bystanders began to shout at him to stop the car because someone was trapped underneath,” she said.

So, they quickly dragged her out and rushed her to the hospital.

Mrs. Nyarko said she received medical treatment at the hospital and had since frequented the hospital for review and treatment.

According to her, despite the many visits to the hospital and application of various ointments for the last six years, she still felt pain anytime she wore heels or stood for some time.

“It is always difficult to sleep. Sometimes I have to bandage my leg before I can sleep. Even just yesterday, I had to bandage my leg before sleeping because of the pain,” she narrated.

Mrs. Nyarko said that when the Evangelism Ministry Director, Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin, called out for persons seeking the miraculous touch of God, she decided to step forward in faith because she needed divine intervention.

“I went forward because six years is a very long time, and I felt that since the doctors cannot help me, then only Jesus can completely heal me of my pain. And lo and behold, He has done it,” she exclaimed.

Mrs. Nyarko and many others who had received instant healing at the event were grateful to God for intervening in their predicaments.
