We praise the Lord for His faithfulness, and the work that He is doing here in Cape Coast. We are rapidly approaching our four year anniversary as a church, the last Sunday in August, and as is common here in Ghana, there will be a special service to celebrate the anniversary of the church plant. Our desire is to make this event about the Lord and what He has graciously done here.
Our concern is that our church is drawn afresh to several important Biblical distinctives that are a part of our young history, and we pray will continue to drive this ministry and future ministries till our Lord returns. Because we have many new faces that were not a part of the original core and the tendency to apathy and compromise, we are planning to dedicate the entire month of August to focusing on several of these Biblical distinctive.
We are asking you to pray with us for God to revive, burden, and instruct this church as we look afresh at these precious truths. I am asking five of our supporting pastors to be part of what we will be doing this month: They will be addressing the following topics with our church via Skype on Tuesday evenings, our regular midweek Bible study and prayer time:
“How Can We Guard the Careful Articulation of the Gospel with Humility and Love?”
“What Doctrinal Distinctives Identify Us as a Baptist Church, and why is This Important?”
“Why Is Doctrinal Depth Important in our Preaching, Teaching, and Music?”
“Why and How Should a Young Church Start Thinking About Church Planting Missions?”
“How Can We Maintain Patience in Ministry Without Loosing Our Passion for Ministry?”
We are excited about this month, and are praying for God to do a great work in His people here in Cape Coast.
