The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) has organised its 2018 Heads of Churches, General Secretaries Conference at the Pentecost Convention Centre, Gomoa Fetteh.
The Conference brought together various Heads of Churches and Organisations, General Secretaries, Regional Chairmen and Secretaries across the country to pray and asses their activities for last year.
Rise against Homosexuality
The Conference themed: “Practically Holy Living: Evidence of a Transformational Life”- (Ephesians 4:20-24) was a two day programme organised annually to pray and exhort themselves as Christian leaders.
Speaking at the Programme, the President of GPCC, and Apostle Prof Opoku Onyinah noted that, the Church is gradually losing the battle of homosexuality urging religious leaders to rise and declare their stance.
Apostle Onyinah urged religious leaders to intensify their teachings by preaching holiness to their members.
Live a Holy Life
Addressing participants on the theme, the General Secretary of GPCC said God demands and provides for holiness, hence religious leaders and Christians should live a holy life.
“God wants us to be holy in the way we walk, think and talk since holiness starts in the inside and comes out for people to see,” – he noted.
Rev Barrigah mentioned that, genuine holiness practical, therefore it is never possible for someone to say he or she is holy without reflecting it in practice.
Highlighting the need for Christians to be holy, the Man of God pointed out that, he does not understand why individuals and Christians are always interested to keep fit physically but what they would do to keep spiritually fit is not much of importance to Christians anymore.
“The Church is losing the Battle of holiness,” he said.
Stating some ways that would enable Christians and religious leaders keep fit spiritually, Rev. Barrigah noted that, Christians must pray, worship, give and spread the gospel to be spiritually fit.
Rev Barrigah cautioned religious leaders to take the word of God seriously and live a practical holy life.
Teach Good Doctrines
The First Vice President of GPCC, Rt. Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah advised participants to teach good doctrines and not alter the word of God.
“The Power does not keep the members of the Church but the doctrines or the teachings of the minister,” he noted.
Rev Ankrah who is the Founder and General Overseer of Royalhouse Chapel International pointed out that, if ministers realise their members are leaving the church, then they should check their teachings.
He also stressed that participants should not love money over their congregation, because it pays to love their congregation over money.
