The Convener of the United Denominations originating from the Lighthouse Group of Churches, Bishop Dr Emmanuel Louis Nterful, has charged Ministers of God to come out of their comfort zone and yearn for maximum expansion of the Church in Ghana.
The Bishop compared the Church to the mustard seed, which is very small but grows bigger with time to become a giant tree to provide shelter for the multitude.
He admitted that though the Church began with few individuals, it has gained momentum with time. He, therefore, called for disciples to yearn to raise repented men and women who will make the necessary moral discipline that the nation needs.
Speaking at the just-ended All Ministers Conference organised by The Church of Pentecost at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh, on the topic: “The Cell System and Church Growth,” he said if righteous people take dominion of the affairs of Ghana, it will transform the nation into a peaceful and joyful one.
He said the Church is the salt of the world. Therefore, the salt must be enough to make the nations feel its presence.
Bishop Dr Nterful further charged believers to consider evangelism a rescue mission that must be tackled with all seriousness and aggression. He told ministers of God not to perceive soul-winning as a talent given by God to some specific individuals. This phenomenon, he said, has caused some ministers to be content with their small membership instead of stepping out of their comfort zone for the people who are perishing in the nations.
He compared the Church to yeast, which catalyses baking. He said the yeast needs to be measured in the quantity of its flour. Therefore, as the nation grows, the Church must also increase to maintain its transformation role.
