Mission Statement


To become a global Pentecostal church that is culturally relevant in vibrant evangelism, church planting, discipleship and holistic ministry. We exist to establish responsible and self-sustaining churches filled with committed, Spirit-filled Christians of character, who will impact their communities.

Description


The Church of Pentecost emerged from the ministry of Rev. James McKeown. It is a Pentecostal church with about 20,000 congregations with more than 3 million members worldwide. Ebenezer Down Assembly is one of such local congregation. In the early 1995 when Pastor (now Apostle Retired) N. A. O. Amegatcher was the Dansoman District Pastor, a mammoth rally was held under the auspices of the Witness Movement then led by Elder (now Pastor) Job Owiredu at the Dansoman Secondary School Compound. This resulted in winning about 25 souls. On the 15th of January, 1995 the souls won together with few brothers and sisters, two elders, 1 deacon and a deaconess totaling 37 were housed in one of the classrooms of the Dansoman Secondary School to form the nucleus of Grace Assembly which is now EBENEZER DOWN ASSEMBLY. Elder Felix Bosompim was the first Presiding Elder and was supported by Elder Daniel Boahene Opoku. Through intense discipleship, the congregation has experienced growth in all sphere of lives and stand as a gateway for holistic christian living.

Organizational Statement of Faith


The Bible: We believe in the divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scriptures. That is infallible in its declaration, final in its authority, all-sufficient in, its provisions and comprehensive in its sufficiency (2Tim. 3:16; 2 Pe. 1:21). ii. The One True God: We believe in the existence of the One True God, Elohim, maker of the whole universe; indefinable, but revealed as Triune Godhead— Father, Son and Holy Spirit- Omniscient and Omnipresent (Gen. 1:1; Matt. 3:16-17; 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14). iii. Man’s Depraved Nature: We believe that “all men have sinned and come short of the glory of God” and are subject to eternal punishment; and need repentance and regeneration (Gen. 3:1-19); Is. 53:6). iv. The Saviour: We believe that man’s need of a Saviour has been met in the person of Jesus Christ, because of His deity, virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death, resurrection and ascension; His abiding and second coming (Matt. 1:2; Jn. 4:42; Phil. 2:6-11). v. Repentance, Justification, Sanctification: We believe that all men have to repent of and confess their sins before God, and believe in the vicarious death of Jesus Christ to be justified before God. We believe in the sanctification of the believer through the working of the Holy Spirit and in God’s gift of eternal life to the believer (Lk. 15:7; Ac. 2: 38; Rom. 4:25; 5:16; 1 Cor. 1:30; 1Thess 4: 3). vi. The Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper: We believe in the Sacrament of Baptism by immersion as a testimony of a convert who has attained a responsible age of about 15 years. (Infants and children are not baptized but are dedicated to the Lord). We believe in the participation in the Sacrament by members who are in full fellowship (Matt. 28:19-2-; Mk. 16:16; Lk. 22:19-20). vii. Baptism, Gifts and Fruit of the Holy Spirit: We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with signs following; also in the operation of the gifts and the fruit of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers(Mk. 16:17; Ac. 2:4; 1 Cor.12:8-11; Gal. 5:23). viii. Next Life: We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved – they that are saved to the resurrection of life and the unsaved to the resurrection of damnation (Mk. 13: 26; Dan. 12:2; Jn. 5: 29; Ac. 1:11 10:42; Rom. 2:7-11; 6:23). ix. Tithes and Offering: We believe in tithing and in the giving of free-will offerings towards the cause of carrying forward the Kingdom of God. We believe that God blesses a cheerful giver (Gen. 14:18-20; 10-22; Mal. 3:6-10; Matt. 23:23; Ac 20:35; 1 Cor. 16:1-3; 2 Cor. 9:1-9). x. Divine Healing: We believe that the healing of sickness and disease is provided for God’s people in the atonement. The Church is, however, not opposed to soliciting the help of qualified medical practitioners (2 Kgs 20:20-22; Matt. 9:12; Lk. 10:34; Col. 4:14).
