The newly-constructed Mission House of the Thomas Nyarko Worship Centre in the Teshie-Nungua Area of The Church of Pentecost was dedicated on Sunday, August 6, 2023.
The service was officiated by the Area Head, Apostle Wilberforce Nkrumah- Agyeman, with assistance from the outgoing Resident Minister for Thomas Nyarko Worship Centre, Overseer Emmanuel Marfo.
Apostle Nkrumah-Agyeman commended the leadership of Thomas Nyarko Worship Centre for putting up the beautiful edifice to serve as a permanent place of residence for their Resident Minister.
Preaching on the topic “Repositioned to Stand Firm,” Apostle Wilberforce Nkrumah- Agyeman quoted various Bible texts including Matthew 7:24-27, 2 Kings 2:19-22 and Psalm 11:3 and explained that the builders in Jesus’ parable in Matthew 7:24-27 put up both buildings under similar circumstances and were faced with the same storm. However, it was the one whose foundation was on the rock that could withstand the raging storm.
He said that Christians are not immune to challenges and troubles of life because God has not promised a problem free Christianity.
He continued that the rain in the passage represents a short succession of trials while the flood represents a prolonged season of trials that becomes overwhelming.
He reiterated that all these trials come as a test, to test the faith of believers in Jesus Christ.
“It is only when Christians are deeply rooted in Jesus Christ and in His word, that they will be able to overcome every trial that comes their way,” he said adding, “As Christians, Jesus is our anchor and we must be firmly grounded in Him by abiding in His word because Jesus Christ is our sure foundation.”
Christians, according to him, should remain steadfast in the Lord when trials and tribulations come because the God of all grace will Himself restore them and make them strong, firm and steadfast, quoting from 1 Peter 5:10.
Apostle Nkrumah-Agyeman commended Elder Alfred Quainoo, a building contractor from the Tebibianor District of the Teshie-Nungua Area, who in short time was able to put up the ultra-modern Mission house.
Pastor Marfo expressed gratitude, on behalf of the Worship Centre, to the leadership of The Church of Pentecost and the Area for their invaluable support.
