Apostolic Church of Ghana dedicates chapel

Sunyani (B/A) Oct. 30, GNA- Nana Bosoma Asor Nkrawiri, Omanhene of Sunyani Traditional Area, at the weekend urged Christians to remain faithful to God and eschew ungodliness to help curb the upsurge of immoral acts in society.

He expressed regret that despite the proliferation of Churches in the country, crimes including armed robbery, sexual promiscuity, the use of profane language, indecent dressing and drug abuse were on the ascendancy. Nana Nkrawiri gave the advice at the dedication of 3.5 billion cedis chapel for Assembly 'C' of the Apostolic Church of Ghana in Sunyani.

He stressed that "Christianity plays a paramount role in ensuring peace, stability and prosperity of a country," and implored Christians to let the Christian teachings reflect in their daily lives. Nana Nkrawiri commended members of the Church for their contributions towards the development of the area and the Brong Ahafo Region as a whole.


In a sermon, Apostle J.N. Tetteh, principal of Apostolic Bible College, expressed concern about the lack of culture of maintenance among the people and asked members of the Church to continue to take active part in Church activities. He also advised them to pray to God in time of challenges and asked the youth to be guided by Biblical principles and to desist from unproductive activities. Mr. Kwame Twumasi-Awuah, the Sunyani Municipal Chief Executive, urged the Church to collaborate with the Assembly to promote environmental sanitation.

He advised the people to register with the National Health Insurance Scheme and appealed to parents to enrol their children in school.
