The Cape Coast Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Samuel Yaw Antwi, has charged believers to go out and preach the Gospel with all urgency to snatch lost souls from eternal damnation.
Apostle Antwi, who is also an Executive Council Member of the church, made this passionate call on October 31, 2021, during the launch of the ‘One Member One Discipled Soul’ project at the auditorium of the Adisadel Assembly in Cape Coast in the Central Region.
Quoting from 2 Timothy 4:1-5, Apostle Antwi said Christians must aggressively preach the Gospel to rescue souls that are hell-bound especially since all signs point to the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
According to him, every Christian must proclaim Christ in season and out of season and trust Jesus Christ to draw men unto Himself through evangelistic efforts. He further noted that it is only the Gospel that has the power to rescue sinners from the kingdom of darkness and grant them access into God’s presence.
The Cape Coast Area Head was confident that through aggressive evangelism, members of the LGBTQI+ community and its advocates could be brought to the saving knowledge of Christ and be delivered from their sinful tendencies. He also called on Christians to continue to intercede for Ghana in prayer so that the LGBTQ bill, currently before parliament, will be passed into law.
Outlining the strategies and activities for the One Member One Discipled Soul project, Pastor Samuel Aidoo, the Area Evangelism Ministry Leader, said the Cape Coast Area is targeting a harvest of 2,900 souls at the end of November 2021, which has been declared the ‘Aggressive Evangelism Month’ by The Church of Pentecost.
Among the outreaches to be undertaken during the period are rallies, houses-to-house evangelism, as well as outreaches to the ghettos, markets, lorry stations and institutions.
He also revealed that a mega crusade will be organised by the Area at Elmina as part of the exercise.
The event was attended by the Cape Coast Area pastorate and their wives, presiding elders and ministry leaders in the Area, and other representatives from the various districts, including Evangelism Ministry Executive Committee members and church members.
