A National Executive Council (NEC) member of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Rt. Rev. Nana Anyani-Boadum has urged Heads of Churches to be committed to evangelism as a way of addressing secular humanism confronting Christianity in the country.
According to him, 50 years of Pentecostalism in Ghana is not a small feat, so “we must commit ourselves to certain things and beliefs to revive the power of Pentecostalism in the country.”
Addressing participants at the 2019 Conference of Heads of Churches and Organisations organised by GPCC, he noted that, parents do not have any idea of most of the things their children are exposed to on the internet which has altered their character formation.
Rev Anyani-Boadum stressed that, parents must be concerned, and the Church must be well positioned to fight secular humanism on all fronts.
He pointed out that, character formation is very key in the life of every individual, therefore parents must pay much attention to it before their children get out of hands.
Proposing ways to address it, Rev. Anyani-Boadum noted that, Christians should win more souls as they commit themselves to evangelism and make sure the souls are well structured in the word of God and holiness to differentiate believers from unbelievers.
Church is not Fun Fair
Rev. Anyani-Boadum who is also the Head Pastor of Jesus Generation Evangelistic Ministry advised GPCC to have an outlined programme that will impact the society positively after 50 years of Pentecostalism in the Country because the “ Church is not a fun fair.
He said a well-structured programme of activities would have a great impact on the country, “we should not see church as a fun fair but a serious task which we must be committed to as Christians and servants of God.”
“There are some younger churches coming after us, let us have a heart for them. Some of them will come with mistakes, let us not condemn them, let us embrace them and chaperon,” he appealed.
The man of God said, they have also made mistakes in the past as part of the growing stages, hence small churches that commit genuine mistakes should be helped to address them.
He pointed out that, when these men of God from small churches come round for assistance, “they are not coming to take your members away, but rather need help to build their own churches”.
Rev. Anyani-Boadum urged his fellow men of God not to be happy when people are condemning smaller churches because all of them are committed to one assignment.
“We must have time for the smaller churches and pray with them so that we can win more souls together as one body of Christ,” the clergyman noted.
