The leadership of L’Eglise de Pentecoste du Togo, a parallel church of The Church of Pentecost in Togo, has paid a courtesy call on the Chairman of the church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye.
The delegation met with the Chairman on Tuesday, December 6, 2022, at the Church’s General Headquarters at Labadi, in Accra.
Among their delegation were Apostle Samuel D. Lawson (President, L’Eglise de Pentecoste du Togo), Apostle Daniel K. Dogbovi (General Secretary), Apostle Cyprien K. Bruce (Executive Council Member), and Pastor Gregoire A. Amoeni (Executive Council Member).
According to the President of the Togolese Pentecostal denomination, Apostle Lawson, the visit was to render sincere appreciation to the leadership of The Church of Pentecost for its immense help in guiding them through elections and induction of their leaders.
“Your action demonstrates how much you are with us and supporting us always,” he stated.
He further noted that the call was to reemphasise the collaboration between both churches.
In his response, Apostle Eric Nyamekye said that there was the need for both denominations to forge towards building stronger churches in the future.
“We must forge ahead together. Let us come together and have an agreement for future generations to have a common understanding,” Apostle Nyamekye said.
He expressed his support to the new leadership and encouraged them to rely on the power of the Holy Spirit in taking decisions. This, he said, would help in building a stronger church for God.
To the President, the Chairman urged him to be strong and courageous, saying, “Once you have been made the leader, you have to be firm to do the work. Do it with the group since you can’t do it alone, and they will be your strength.”
He added: “Anytime God chooses a leader; He chooses because of what the leader can do and places His will within the leader. Know that we are building a church, not an association. The church has an enemy behind fighting against it every time. Focus on the work and not the privileges of leadership.”
Apostle Nyamekye charged them to strife for peace among the members as they build a spiritual church.
Present were Apostle Emmanuel Agyemang Bekoe (International Missions Director), Apostle Samuel Osei Asante (Executive Council Member and Kaneshie Area Head), Apostle Lare Banimpo (National Head, The Church of Pentecost International, Togo), Apostle Dr. Dieudonne Nuerkper (La Area Head), and Apostle Cephas Akpagana (The Church of Pentecost International, Togo)
