The Ho Area of The Church of Pentecost has dedicated the church buildings of the Grace and Titrinu Assemblies in the Sokode Lokoe District and Godokpe District, respectively.
The buildings, which were dedicated by the Area Head, Apostle Dr. Dela Quampah, were both funded through the Community Based Church Building (CBCB) initiative of the church’s General Headquarters.
The Dome District Minister, Pastor Stephen Viku, gave the exhortation at the dedication ceremony for the Grace Assembly church building on November 24 on the topic: “Knowing Christ By Revelation to Possess Nations.”
In his sermon, Pastor Viku said that knowledge of Christ comes through personal revelation and not through annual themes or church activities. He, however, explained that annual themes and programmes provide a setting to facilitate one’s personal encounter with Christ.
Pastor Viku, therefore, called on Christians, particularly members of the Church, to strive to know Christ on a personal level.
To receive a personal revelation of Christ to possess the nations, the Dome District Pastor said that one has to transfer their head knowledge of Christ to heart by putting the word of God into practice for all to see.
Delivering a sermon titled: “Grow in the Lifestyle of Christ” at the dedication ceremony of Titrinu Assembly church building on November 26, Pastor Nelson Agbove of Bankoe District advised Christians to lead Christlike lifestyles bearing in mind that they would render an account of their lives on earth.
He said that, just like the beautiful church edifice, which was being dedicated, the members should also dedicate their lives to Christ by leading righteous lives so as to make Christianity attractive to the watching world.
“Christ has made a home in us and has also imputed in us His lifestyle, hence let us exhibit the lifestyle of Christ so that people will see the good work of the Lord and give glory to Him. In this way, many people would also come to Him,” he said.
Apostle Dr. Dela Quampah, who doubles as an Executive Council Member of the Church, advised both assemblies to do well to maintain the buildings.
Present at the dedication ceremonies were the Ho Area pastorate and their wives.
