The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has called on officers of the Church to gracefully embrace “Vision 2028” in order to foster the transformation of society.
In his sermon, Apostle Nyamekye emphasised the importance of leadership and vision in the church.
He stated, “God always gives his people leaders. The Vision given to the leader by God is for the whole church, not for a single individual.”
He said this on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, during a presentation on the “Rationale For Theme 2024” during the Takoradi Area Apostolisation service. The event, which began on February 6, 2024, is set to conclude on February 11, 2024.
He praised the officers of The Church of Pentecost, describing them as the custodians of the church.
He said, “Our officers are our most important constituents. Their faithful service has made the church what it is today.”
Apostle Nyamekye urged the officers to own and work with the vision, stating, “We need to imbibe the vision into the officers.”
He discussed the church’s ‘Vision 2028’, which seeks to “unleash the whole church to transform their world with the values and principles of the Kingdom of God.”
He explained the concept of unleashing as “to cause the tremendous power locked up in the church to be released for the transformation of society.”
He added, “We all have power granted to us by God, and we are to release that tremendous power to the world to transform it.”
Apostle Nyamekye stressed the importance of upholding principles in workplaces to prevent corruption.
He explained that transformation takes two forms: the conversion of the soul and the conversion of society through the Gospel.
He emphasised the church’s responsibility to illuminate the world with Kingdom values and principles to combat societal corruption.
The Chairman stressed the importance of lighting up the world with Kingdom values and principles.
He said, “As light of the world, we are to go into the world and light up the world with Kingdom values and principles.”
He reaffirmed that Christ as the ultimate life-transformer and encouraged attendees to embody His teachings in their daily lives.
He concluded by reminding officers of the theme for 2024, “a people of God unleashed to transform their world,” and urged them to live within the values of the Kingdom for the world to see.
He said, “As people of the Kingdom, let us live within the values of the Kingdom for the world to see. We must intentionally raise our children to impact the state.”
