“We are ready to receive you” – Musama to breakaway members

Mozano (C/R), Mr Alexander Kodjo Kom Abban, the Lawyer for Musama Disco Christo Church (MDCC), has said the Church was ready and has widened its hands in warm embrace to receive those factions who broke away.

He said the Church was prepared to welcome and integrate them into the church to fraternize and rejoice in the Lord.

There is not going to be any reprisal action against anybody even the ring leaders, all we are saying is, they should eat humble pie to come and join the one undivided church of the MDCC, he added.

Mr Abban disclosed this at the Anniversary Fund Raising Service of the MDCC held in Mozano, headquarters of the Church in the Central Region as part of activities marking the annual Peace Festival celebration.

The two-week festival, which brings together members of the Church from all parts of the country and from abroad, is celebrated in the latter part of August and ends in September.

It was held on the theme: Trust in Him at all times ye people. Psalm 62:8″.

Prophet Miritaitah Jehu-Appiah, who is the Leader of the breakaway faction, led the MDCC until 2003 when he was removed by the Church and challenged his removal in court.

On Wednesday November 11, 2015, a Supreme Court Ruling unanimously quashed his removal as Akaboha III and Head Prophet of the MDCC, which led to the establishment of the Musama Church International with some members breaking away.

Mr Abban said the Church was in court to seek a declaration that the Musama Church International could not use any representation of the MDCC, including emblem, totems and anything closely associated with the MDCC.

We have sought a declaration from the court that all stations that are now align to him but which prior to February 2003 where known as Musama Disco Christo Church are still the bonafide property of the church.

And also to ask the court for a consequential relieve that all those asserts should be returned to the Church.

But I must underscore that we are not saying that all members of those churches should come to the MDCC, no because they have the freedom of worship the way they want, but they cannot employ the assets of an existing church and say that have formed a new church out of it, he said.

Mr Abban also called on parents to make the welfare and education of their children their paramount concern and refrain from lavish expenditure.

He said this was important as education held the key to the future of children and the nation at large.

Reverend Jimatona Emmacolian Kobina Mensah, the Documentation Minister of the MDCC entreated Christians to trust in God’s faithfulness and remain committed to His word.

Highlight of the Peace Festival include Prayers for Spiritual and Economic prosperity of Ghana, Health walk and Divine Healing Service.

The MDCC, translated as The Army of the Cross of Christ Church, was founded in 1922 by the late Prophet Jemisimiham Jehu-Appiah (the Akaboha I), a former Catechist of the Methodist Church.
