The Kaneshie Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Samuel Osei Asante, has dedicated the two-in-one Ebenezer and English Assemblies church building in the Lapaz District.
Apostle Asante, an Executive Council Member of the church and Coordinator of the Greater Accra Regional Coordinating Committee dedicated the auditorium on Sunday, September 10, 2023, with the assistance of Pastor Oppong Kyeremah, the Lapaz District Minister and some other ministers in the Kaneshie Area.
Formerly known as Nazareth Assembly, the assembly became Ebenezer Assembly on June 11, 2006, to reflect how far God has brought it after losing about two places of worship, mainly due to land litigation.
The auditorium was constructed with a grant of GH₵ 822,367.40 from the General Headquarters, GH₵ 110,000.00 from the Kaneshie Area, GH₵10,000.00 and GH₵40,000 from the Local Assembly. Speaking about the holiness of God titled, “Repositioning The Local Church In Holiness For Maximum Impact,” Apostle Asante explained why Christians must be holy, citing Leviticus 11:41-45 and Ephesians 1:3.
He explained that God wants His children to be holy because He is holy; the place of worship is a sacred place and, therefore, expects godly people to be in His presence. He further revealed that it is through holiness that believers shall receive from God and that only holy people will go to heaven.
Apostle Asante explained that if there are over 70% of Christians in Ghana, as statistics have it, the country should not be engulfed in the high level of corruption it finds itself in. He lamented that Ghana was in this mess because Christians had not allowed themselves to take up the full nature of God. Therefore, he urged Christians to take up the whole character of God and live a holy life for transformation.
Present at the dedication service were Mrs Afia Bonsu (Kaneshie Area Women’s Ministry Leader) and Elder Kempis Yaw Boamah (Assembly Member for the Anorhuma Electoral Area), among others.
