Apostle Dr. Stephen Kwame Amoani, Chairman of the Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI), has reminded pastors that ‘the Message of the Cross’ is salvation for people to live godly and responsible lives; but not the accumulation of earthly wealth. He, therefore, urged them to shun the monetisation of the word and the insatiable desire for wealth and power, which was gradually creeping into the Church. Apostle Dr Amoani, who was delivering a sermon to climax the Centenary Celebration of the Church, urged them to care for their flock, show compassion for the poor and devote to prayer that would bring healing and relief to the afflicted.
He said as Ministers of God, they were the model as the light and salt of the world, therefore, they should guard against deviation. Apostle Dr Amoani said it was also prudent that all Christians examined their lives and re-dedicated themselves to the work of God, learn to forgive, uphold their integrity and respect the sanctity and dignity of life. He said urged Ghanaians to continue to be one another’s keeper irrespective of their political affiliation, eschew rancour and live in unity. Thousands of members of the Church from Ghana and beyond, filled the Black Star Square, in Accra, to pray, praise, sing and dance to glorify the Lord for seeing the Church through the decades.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was the Guest of Honour at the Service, attended also by the Israeli Ambassador to Ghana, Ami Mehl, many Christian delegates, as well as some from the Church’s branches in the United Kingdom, India, Nigeria, Cote d’Ivoire and other countries. The year-long anniversary was held on the theme:”100 years of Impacting the World through Pentecostalism.” Apostle Dr Amoani noted that 100 years in the life of the Church, marked a significant milestone in the life of the Church, therefore, the occasion was meant to thank God for his faithfulness over the years.
