A couple, Mr. Isaac Kwame and Mrs. Alexandria Addo Antwi, has single-handedly constructed a magnificent church auditorium at a cost of GH¢ 2,500,000.00 for the Nchiraa Assembly in the Kintampo Area of The Church of Pentecost.
The 700-seater auditorium, with a children’s auditorium, is fitted with modern chairs, LED TV screens, a full set of electronic and musical equipment, offices, washrooms, and storerooms.
They also supplied all the security doors, POP ceilings, tiling, and installation of air conditioners for the construction of the district mission house.
Mr. Kwame Antwi, a native of Nchiraa, handed over the keys to the building to Apostle Mark Obeng Andoh, the Chairman of the Bono, Bono East and Ahafo Regional Coordinating Committee (RCC), during the dedication of the church building which took place on Friday, October 30, 2020.
According to him, the Lord laid it on his heart to construct the building for the assembly considering the sorry state of their former place of worship. Though it was difficult for him to build the auditorium, he was full of praise to God for granting him the resources and strength to put up the edifice within a year.
In a sermon on the topic, “Taking a step of faith,” Apostle Mark Obeng Andoh challenged all to demonstrate strong faith in God no matter the obstacles, impossibilities, and challenges that come their way. Using Hebrews 11:1-6 to explain his point, he mentioned that the Christian’s walk with God is based on faith, for without faith it is impossible to please God.
“Christianity loses its importance when it is not based on faith in God, for faith is the currency for purchasing things from heaven and also a legal document to claim title deeds from God,” he emphasised.
Explaining the different types of faith, he stated that there is natural faith given to all no matter one’s religious background; intellectual faith that is gained from the acquisition of knowledge; and the gift of faith that is solely given by God.
On behalf of the leadership of the Church, Apostle Andoh expressed great appreciation to the couple for their strong faith to put up the beautiful edifice for the Church at Nchiraa, and that their names will surely be recorded amongst the heroes of faith.
He concluded by admonishing all to take a bold step of faith and be motivated by the kind gesture of the couple to do more for the Lord.
He commended the Kintampo Area Head, Apostle Gideon Obeng-Darko Debrah, and the District Minister of Subinso, Pastor Fredrick Doh-Bodzra, as well as the District Executive and Estate Committees for their selflessness, commitment, and the supervisory role they played in the construction of the edifice.
The Chief of Nchiraa, Nana Tabiri Yaw III, was full of appreciation to the couple and The Church of Pentecost for building the beautiful auditorium in the community. He disclosed that the magnificent auditorium would go a long way to draw many people to the saving power of Jesus Christ.
In attendance were Apostles Samuel Berko, William Edzorhoho, Pastors Daniel Frimpong Manso, Shadrack Ohene-Asah Otu, traditional leaders from the Nchiraa Traditional Council, among others.
