The Kofi-Badukrom District in the Berekum Area of The Church of Pentecost, on September 4, 2020, dedicated two church buildings to the glory of God.
The projects were Antwirifo Assembly church building which was started 26 years ago, and the Agyemangkrom Assembly Community Based Church Building (CBCB) which started in 2015.
Speaking at the dedication service at Antwirifo on the topic, “My body, God’s new temple” taken from 1 Corinthians 3:16-18, Pastor Edmund Mawunyor Duvor, District Minister for Nsesereso district, entreated believers to use their bodies to honour God and also justify God’s choice of settling in them.
The Chief of Antwirifo, Nana Takyi Ababio III, who could not hide his joy over the project, expressed his appreciation to the Chairman of the Church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, and the Berekum Area Head, Apostle Samuel Berko, for their support.
Nana Takyi Ababio also commended the District Minister, Overseer Bright Amankwah, for building a strong relationship between the Church and the palace, and the good work he is doing in the community.
At Agyemangkrom, Overseer Ebenezer Shamo Abbey of Dormaa Koraso District, in a sermon on the topic, “The purpose of the church,” encouraged Christians to always focus on the ”whys” of the church and seek to achieve those purposes.
Referencing from Acts 6:1ff, he explained that the church exists to win souls, pray and influence or transform lives.
The Area Head, Apostle Samuel Berko, on his part, commended all who contributed to the construction of the church buildings.
In attendance were Ministers and their wives in the Area, the chiefs and people of the two communities, Government officials, Officers and members of the church, the Islamic community, among others.
