The Foso Station District in the Assin Foso Area of The Church of Pentecost has refurbished and rededicated its Central Assembly auditorium.
The magnificent edifice, which was refurbished at the total cost of GH₵598,109.22, is made up of a large auditorium (700-seater), offices, state-of-the-art equipment, and washrooms.
The ceremony, which took place on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, was officiated by the outgoing Area Head, Apostle Sylvester Arhin, who also doubles as an Executive Council Member of the church. He was assisted by the Sawla Area Head, Apostle William Ohemeng Kwakye (a former District Pastor of Foso Town District), and the Assin Foso Station District Minister, Pastor Kwasi Bukari.
Speaking on the topic, “The Inner Beauty of a Glorious Church,” based on 1 Peter 3:3-5, Apostle William Ohemeng Kwakye posited that Christianity is more than merely going to church. “It has more to do with representing and presenting Christ to all nations,” he said.
He called upon the congregation to spend quality time to develop their relationship with God just as the Church has spent a lot of resources and time to beautify the physical building.
He stated: “The character of believers should be beautiful and Christ-like. The church building is beautiful, therefore, its occupants must also have beautiful characters so that the church will become glorious and possess the nations for Christ.”
He explained that “there is the need for everyone to develop their inner beauty so that they can dwell in peace with others because the inner beauty acts as a moral compass that helps to differentiate between right and wrong.”
Apostle Ohemeng Kwakye ended the sermon by encouraging the church to read and study the Bible daily, pray, and fast, and live holy lives in order to develop a beautiful inner man.
In a brief history about the project, Elder Isaac Addai said “the project, which was first dedicated in 2013, needed to undergo major structural engineering to get it into the current state.”
The cost of the building was largely borne through funding from the Headquarters, Area and District Grants, Local Funds, and individual donations.
