Immaculate Church of Christ Commissions Church Building

Bronx, NY – The Christian Journal – The Immaculate Pentecostal Church of Christ International, headed by Reverend Kennedy Obeng-Sefah, launched a three-day power packed program to commission its new premises located at 1309 Gun Hill Road last month.  Hundreds of people thronged to the well organized events, which featured several pulpit luminaries, including Dr. Isaac Arku, Bishop Alexander Kissi, Reverend Stephen Addo and Reverend Ben Boakye.

Others included the President of the Ghanaian Ministers Association, Reverend Kuffour, Reverend Charles Acheampong, Bishop Ben Boateng, Reverend Hassan Zebaru, Reverend Darko and Reverend Akuffo.  The highlight of the occasion was the ordination of some of the church’s members, including The Christian Journal’s Contributing Editor and Columnist, Dr. Steve Danso to various positions of the church.

The ordination was performed by Dr. Isaac Arku.  In his speech, he reminded the congregation that the purpose of ordination is to recognize men and women whom God has called, to set them apart for ministry, to safeguard the ministry, and to provide an occasion that will encourage them in years to come.

He told the ordainees that conferring the titles on them was not a personal status or privilege, but to be set apart as men and women who would be fully engaged in performing certain functions within the Church to the glory of God.  Central to this responsibility, he said, is to preach the Word, celebrate the sacraments, and share in the pastoral oversight of the household of God.   “I enjoin you to live up to your responsibilities as men and women of purity, preach the Word and defend the truth with boldness and clarity,” he emphasized.

Earlier, Bishop Kissi, who commissioned the magnificent three storey building, praised the vision and fortitude of the Pastor and members of the church in acquiring the building and encouraged them not to be daunted by the challenges that may arise because God was with them every step of the way.

The church relocated to the new building in August last year from 4017 Seton Avenue in Baychester, where it was previously located.
