Live The COP Brand! – Apostle Kumi-Larbi Urges Missionaries

The General Secretary of The Church of Pentecost (CoP), Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, has emphasized the importance of missionaries embracing a Christ-centered lifestyle that aligns with the values and principles of The Church of Pentecost, regardless of their location.

According to the General Secretary, “Over the years, The Church of Pentecost has built a Christ-centered brand with our core values, culture, and rules of conduct handed down to us as a legacy from our forebears, which we must preserve and pass on to the next generation.”

He made this call when addressing the newly-called missionaries to the internal and external mission areas of the Church yesterday at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh.

Delivering a paper on “Deepening The COP Brand,” Apostle Kumi-Larbi emphasised that “for the past 80 years, our forebears, being careful in observing the instructions in the covenant, the tenets, core values, church culture, and rules of conduct of the church, have given the CoP a unique and enviable brand which ought to be guarded jealously.

He encouraged all ministers and members of the church to brand themselves with the values and principles of Christ. He said that, like every other church, The Church of Pentecost has its own culture and foundational beliefs at the heart of its theology, governing system, and practical expression of Christian life and ministry.

“As a church, we love and cherish these practices so dearly. Everyone who comes into our fold must know and diligently apply themselves to these,” he stated.

He reiterated the need to reposition the church in this generation as a clarion call to deepen the brand as a church.

“We want to make The COP brand stronger and more intense to bring clarity to it and cause our members to become more interested in the church. These are virtues and values that must be jealously guarded and bequeathed from one generation to the other,” he added.

He urged the missionaries to carry a distinctive character of Christ, which has contributed to building a strong church through selfless service, sound biblical teaching, good leadership and succession, evangelism and discipleship, sacrificial giving, fellowship, and discipline.

“It thus behooves this generation to know, uphold, and jealously guard these time-tested Pentecostal distinctive attributes as we seek to reposition the local church for maximum impact,” he stressed.

The General Secretary concluded by saying that although the church began with people who were not so educated, yet, the Holy Ghost inspired them to create a brand that has made the church unique, distinguished, and respected in the world.
