The Mampong Area of The Church of Pentecost has secured airtime on KAS 106.3 FM for a weekly radio broadcast programme, dubbed “Pentecost Hour.”
The Pentecost Hour broadcast, which officially commenced last Saturday, would serve as an avenue to propagate the unadulterated Word of God to as many people as possible in line with the Church’s “Possessing the Nations” agenda.
Speaking on the topic: “Repentance” during the premiere episode, the Area Head, Apostle Samuel Kwabena Asare emphasised that “repentance is so important to God that it is a major theme in the Scriptures which messengers of God in both the Old and New Testaments preached.”
Quoting Matthew 4:17 and Mark 1:15 to buttress his assertion, Apostle Asare stated that the first message Jesus preached after His baptism was: “repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand.” This, he said, showed a relationship between repentance and the Kingdom of God. According to him, “repentance is a key prerequisite of the kingdom of God.”
He defined repentance as a change of heart toward the revealed truth of the word of God, stressing that this change of heart leads to a change of one’s mind, will, attitude and actions.
Making reference to Psalm 119:59-60, Apostle Asare espoused the three steps in repentance.
The first step is for one to stop and begin to ponder over their ways and actions; the second is to turn away from one’s evil ways and decide to follow the ways of God and His commandments, whilst the third is to walk in the ways of God by obeying His commandments and putting His word into practice, the Area Head explained.
Others present for the broadcast were Pastor Raphael Agyekum-Darkwah (Tunsuom District Minister and Area Missions Committee Chairman), Overseer Michael Osei-Yeboah (Birem District Minister and Area Media Ministry Committee Chairman), Elder Obed Nii Sackey, and Mr. Daniel Dankwah.
Pentecost Hour airs this and every Saturday at 5:30 am on KAS 106.3 FM.
