The Accra Presbytery of the Global Evangelical Church has ended its conference, with a call on Ghanaians to eschew laziness and focus on building and developing Ghana.
The Chairman of the presbytery, Rev Felix Mensah Agbo, who made the call, asked Ghanaians to be duty-conscious and aim at high productivity, adding that “laziness and mediocrity should be out of our thinking and attitude”.
He said every act of indiscipline, including making the environment unkempt, would lead to destroying it, urging all to “support the government to make Ghana a better place for us all”.
The two-day conference, held at the Global Theological Seminary at Adenta in Accra, was on the theme: “Knowing God the Holy Spirit.”
Reflecting on the theme, Rev Agbo said the Holy Spirit “works to produce Christ-like character in the believer when he (Holy Spirit) is allowed. Every Christian has to allow the Holy Spirit to direct and influence their lives.”
He congratulated President John Dramani Mahama on his appointment as Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), imploring him to work towards the economic integration of the region.
Mr Evans Fiho, Senior Aide to Mr Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, the Minister of Youth and Sports, who represented the minister as guest of honour, said the Church had become “the ultimate attraction today” where everyone sought refuge.
To be more relevant to society, he said the church should shape the citizenry “the way God wants it to be,” urging congregants to take full advantage of their position as the salt of the earth to bring more souls to Christ.
Mr Fiho urged the Global Evangelical Church to partner the state and support government’s policy to bring about the desired and sustainable development to every facet of the economy.
The Accra Presbytery, at the end of the conference, resolved to, among other things, step up efforts at evangelism and re-demarcate the Accra presbytery, which is the largest in the church.
