  • The Church Is Not Exploiting Members – GBC President
    The Church Is Not Exploiting Members – GBC PresidentThe Executive President of the Ghana Baptist Convention (GBC), Rev. Dr Ernest Adu-Gyamfi has vehemently debunked the perception that churches are exploiting their members to enrich themselves, at the expense of driving development.

    “For some time now, the Church in Ghana has been accused of only collecting tithes and offering from members but have not done anything for society,” the reverend minister lamented.

    He believed that the perception is a falsehood, as the Church from time immemorial had played its role as an agent of development with the provision of schools, hospitals, orphanages, water projects, programmes for street children and many others.

    However, he blamed it on the bad nuts that are bringing shame and disgrace to Christendom, saying: “It is sad to say such accusations are raised against the Church because so-called ministers of the gospel are using the gospel for their personal gains.”

    He then debunked the attack on the Church in Ghana that it only collecting tithes and offering from members but has not done anything for society. He however, faulted the Church for not being able to tell its own story of the number of social intervention it is undertaking.

    As part of measures to let the people of Ghana and the world know how the church had been a key partner in development, the GBC would launch Shalom Broadcasting Network that would tell the story of the Church.

    Rev. Dr. Ernest Adu-Gyamfi said this whilst giving his acceptance speech during his induction ceremony as the Executive President of the GBC and Rev. Enoch. Thompson as Vice President Ministries last Thursday in Accra. This was hoped to prepare youth to take up leadership positions in the Church and country. He said: “Strategic attention would be given to the development of the next generation of leaders for the Convention. I will encourage especially those between 25 to 40 years to make themselves available for training, mentorship and coaching to prepare you to take over the mantle from the current generation.”

    The mentorship programme would be facilitated by a team of high qualified professionals within the denomination, who have been assembled to lead this programme with success training institute of USA to provide another level of professionalism for our members.

    Rev. Dr. Nii Amoo-Darko, former Vice President, GBC, in a sermon dubbed “Serving to please the master”, stated categorically that any church practicing anything other than the word of God is being lawless.

    He wondered why statistics had it that over 70 percent of the Ghanaian population is dominated by Christians yet rots and indiscipline had taken root in the society.

    To him, either the churches are deviating from their core mandates of championing discipline and evangelism or are being occupied by establishing businesses, schools, hospitals and building flamboyant church buildings

    According to him, it was the responsibility of the Church to teach their members how to know and accept Christ, and do His will, since it is only through righteousness that a nation can progress, saying “if our nation is not progressing, the onus is actually on the church which is supposed, not only having the key to lead people righteousness.”

    Although he would not support the government to put in place legislation that will streamline the organisations and establishment of churches, he charged the various Christian bodies to set regulative mechanism to check members.

    Rev. Dr. Amoo-Darko further urged people not to only rely on the scriptures but use their God given conscience as well to ascertain whether the supposed church they have intended to attend is true Church of God.

    “If you attend a church that you are told to eat grass…or the pastor says he has to sleep with you before you can gets pregnant for your husband and you do it, you are not being human,” he added.

  • VEEP JOINS NALERIGU BAPTIST MEDICAL CENTRE TO MARK 60 YEARS

    The Baptist Medical Centre at Nalerigu in the Northern Region, a major referral facility in the three northern regions and neighbouring countries is 60 years.

    Popularly known as BMC, it was established in August 1958 by the then International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention of the USA to provide quality medical services to the people of Ghana.

    It currently serves more than 200 patients a day and carries about 5,000 surgeries yearly. Furthermore, it does more than 3,000 deliveries annually. Records show that 51 years ago doctors at the BMC achieved the feat of carrying out the first cornea transplant in the country.

    At a durbar to climax the 60th anniversary celebration last Thursday, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia noted that “not many people know that you provide free nutrition services to malnourished clients and that your unique way of treating malnourished children is one of the best in the country.”

    He commended the management and staff of the BMC for the 60 years of excellent health care delivery and encouraged them to continue to exhibit dedication and professionalism in their work as a medical team.

    Officials of the Baptist Medical Centre later presented a citation to the Dr. Bawumia and the Overlord of Mamprugu, Naa Bohigu Abdulai Mahami Sheriga in recognition of their contributions to the growth of the BMC.

    The Minister for Local Government and MP for Nalerigu, Hajia Alima Mahama, other government officials and long serving staff were also honoured.

    The center was established through the instrumentality of the late Overlord of Mamprugu, Naa Sheriga Abdulai, father of the Nayiri, the current overlord of Mamprugu who provided 746 acres for the hospital.

    Others who played significant roles are the late Alhaji Mumuni Bawumia, former Chairman of the Council of State and father of Vice President Bawumia.

    In recognition of its remarkable contribution to health care delivery, especially in rural Ghana, the State in 1997 conferred on BMC and the entire staff a Grand Medal of Ghana (Honorary Division).
