Our first Baptism was done on 21st September, 2008. 13 Children and 2 Adults were baptized and this was conducted by Rev Bamfo.
The first communion service was on the 21st September, 2008 and the officiating Minister was Rev. Godfred Bamfo. About 26 people went for communion on that day.
Despite the progress if the church the problems we encountered were many. Evangelism Committee members had to travel long distances to encourage people to attend Church services. Aside that, one other problem was unstable membership due to the long distances members had to cover to attend services.
We give thanks to the Lord for how far he has brought us. We know and believe that He who has started a good work will surely perform it to the end. We show appreciation to all who have helped in one way or the other to bring this vision to pass. May our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Author and Finisher of our faith, strengthen and empower us all for the task ahead of us, as we all wait for His second coming. AMEN.
