The General Secretary of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Rev. Emmanuel T. Barrigah has urged Christians and Religious leaders to renew their commitment to the Lord so they could fulfil God’s purposes in these contemporary times.
According to him, there are some people who profess to be Christians but they are not, because they had not given their lives to Christ; they just go through the normal church rituals and think they are Christians.
“The most important thing is to give their life to Christ and they must allow God to live in them. After they have done that, they should continue to live for him by the help of His spirit,” he said.
Rev. Barrigah said this in an interview in Accra. He indicated that, there had been numerous of sins and evil deeds in the country, but all claim to be Christians.
Expressing worry, he emphasized that, it baffles him whether Christians practice what they taught at their various churches on Sundays, because he does not see the difference between Christians and non-Christians.
Touching on the lifestyle of some Christians in this generation, the General Overseer of The Lord’s Pentecostal Church International (TLPCI), Apostle Dr. Richard Buafor pointed out that, things would have been worst if there was no Christianity “I want the true churches to increase so that evangelism can be intensive to change a lot of lives.”
“The power to transform and change human beings can only be found in the gospel of Jesus Christ, so we want to plant churches at every corner of this country to intensify evangelism,” he said.
As part of their two-year strategic plan, the church aims to win 3,000 souls starting from October 2017 to October 2018 in order to get more people in the kingdom of God.
He called on Christians to strengthen their faith and live a life worthy of emulation so they would not miss the second coming of Christ.
Apostle Buafor emphasized that, if all Christians would practise what they were being taught on Sundays at church, ‘there won’t be any bad deeds in the country making it a better place to live’.
