The Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI) Sunday inducted a seven member-executive, with Apostle George Yeboah, as Chairman, into its Council, with a charge on them to serve with good conscience and selflessness.
Apostle Dr Stephen Amoani, the immediate past Chairman, inducted his successor, while Apostle Yeboah, swore in his team, Apostle Samuel Amponsah Frimpong, General-Secretary, Apostle Enoch Osafo, Field Director, Apostle Samuel Addai Kusi, Missions Director, Apostle Prosper Agbaglo Dogbey, Evangelism Director, Apostle Joseph Arhin, Christian Education Director and Apostle George Morklah, as the Prophetic Director.
The ceremony, held at the Anim Temple at the Church’s headquarters at Osu, was witnessed by a large number of the clergy and the congregation.
The executives have a four-year term to further the growth of the Church amid evangelism and initiating programmes for the well being of members and the citizenry.
Delivering the sermon, a former Chairman, Apostle Michael Nimo, urged them exemplify the Ministry of the Apostle Paul, and only wage battles, which would glorify the Lord.
The Church today, he said, had imported the things of world to adulterate the Gospel.
These include the love for money, divorce, the elevation of the power of Satan over that of God’s, wickedness in high places and corruption.
Using the examples of King David and his murder of Uriah over his adultery with Bathsheba; as well as his intention to kill Nabal over his refusal to give him some provisions, he reminded them that ‘power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely’.
They should, therefore, not use their power to settle personal scores, indulge in covetousness or punish their perceived enemies.
Rather, they should rebuke wrongdoers in love, sacrifice for the common good and promote love and unity.
Apostle Yeboah, who has become the eighth leader of the first Pentecostal movement in Ghana, holds a Masters Degree in Guidance and Counselling.
He was the Territorial Apostle of the Accra East Territory of the century plus old Church.
Apostle Yeboah, on behalf of his compatriots, urged the Clergy to be united in the body of Christ, and strive to develop the potentials of church members for the progress of the Church.
He promised to champion holiness and initiate programmes for the spiritual and physical well being of members.
They would also collaborate with the Government for the benefit of citizens.
Apostle Samuel Kofi Asare, also a former Chairman of the Church, led the prayers for the Executives, the congregation and the nation.
