The Winneba Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Samuel Otu-Appiah, has called on the clergy to work at enhancing the home cell system in the Church for the effective equipping of the members.
Speaking on the topic: “Equipping the Church with the Word of God as the Sword of the Spirit” at the ongoing Central Regional Ministers and Wives Conference yesterday, Apostle Otu-Appiah emphasised that the Home Cell concept affords the church members a golden opportunity to influence their spheres.
“It is the place where the community can join us and see the Christ in us,” he stated.
He explained that Home Cells grant members the opportunity to truly show that they are transformed beings and share their beliefs with others in their communities.
“It is a great avenue to influence our spheres with values and principles of the kingdom of God. Let us go back and take particular interest in reorganising the Home Cells,” he advised.
He identified Bible Study groups, New Converts and New Members classes as well as encouraging personal devotions (Joshua 1:8) as the other unique platforms within the church for studying the word of God and equipping members.
He added that memorisations of Scripture, recitals, quizzes and meditations are also ways to instil the word of God in the members.
“Equipping is about spending time with people in the Word. Let us make time for this in our churches and communities,” he encouraged.
