AN ultra-modern Baptistery has been inaugurated for Seventh-day Adventists at Bantama in Kumasi in the Mid-Central Ghana Conference (MICG) to support evangelism activities of the church.
Five families who are church members sponsored the building of the baptistery. They are Elder & Mrs. Nicholas Yaw Obeng, Mr. & Mrs. E. K. Agyeman, Mr. & Mrs. Daniel Effah, Mr. & Mrs. Asiamah Aboagye and Mr. & Mrs. Asiedu Baffour.
At an inaugural ceremony to dedicate the baptistery to the Lord, Church and District Pastor for Bantama, Alexander Marfoh baptised seven souls to the glorification of the Lord to commemorate inauguration.
And while District Treasurer, Elder Augustine Owusu-Appiah gave the history and financial contributions to the building of the facility, Ministerial Secretary of the MICG, Pastor Nimako Boansi prayed to officially dedicate it to the Lord.
The President of the MICG, Pastor Seth Kwasi Asiedu was assisted by the Executive Secretary of the MICG, Pastor Amponsa Acheampong to cut the tape to officially inaugurate the facility.
This was after he had led Communion Service of the Bantama Church, he said the Lord had commissioned the Seventh-day Adventists to preach the gospel to the entire world.
That he said was not all, but that it was necessary to baptise all who would accept the teachings and precept of the Lord as they become new souls for the Lord.
He urged the seven baptised people to remain focused by living Godly lifestyles to draw others also unto the Lord and commended the Bantama Church for the initiative to catch up with the modern way of baptism in consonance to the Lord’s work.
