Accra, Bishop Gordon Kisseih, Presiding Bishop of the Life International Church, has called on Christians to open a new chapter by refraining from acts which could hinder national development.
He said Christians will be doing disservice to the nation if they do not allow the teachings of Jesus Christ to reflect in their daily lives.
Bishop Kisseih was speaking over the weekend at the 30th Anniversary celebration of the church which was held under the theme: ‘Exploits’ at Achimota.
He attributed the country’s socio-economic woes to Christians mad rush for monetary gains instead of seeking their spiritual well-being.
Bishop Kisseih said the church which was established in 1987, has opened many branches across the country including Amasaman, Tema, Kpone, Koforidua, Tamale Mankessim, Tarkwa and Cape Coast.
He said the church has also been able to put up a senior high school at Tema and has produced a number of graduates who are excelling at various tertiary institutions.
The Presiding Bishop said the church has also established fellowships and ministries in all the branches and are working effectively for the promotion of the gospel.
‘As the church began to grow, he said, there arose the need to raise more pastors and leaders for the church and to meet this human resource requirement the Bible College initially known as the Heritage Bible School was founded in 1995.
Bishop Kisseih said the church has been supporting orphanage homes with donations over the years as part of its social responsibilities.
He expressed the hope that the church would continue to preach the unadulterated word of God for the benefit of mankind.
