The Church of Pentecost - The Church - History

This same jesus, which has been taken from
you into heaven, shall come back in like
manner as you have seen him go into heaven
(Acts 1:11)

bring all people everywhere to the saving
knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ
through the proclamation of the gospel, the
planting of churches and the equipping of
believers for every God-glorifying

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new
creation; the old has gone, the new
has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV )

Apostle Dr. S.K. Baidoo
International Missions Director

The Church of Pentecost has branches in over 57 countries in all six continents. This spread
of the Church is rooted in the economic crisis of 1983 that engulfed the nation, Ghana,
thereby compelling Ghanaians, including some of the members to go into the Diaspora,
carrying with them the Gospel.
The foreign missions are well coordinated by an International Missions Director based in the
Church’s headquarters in Accra who often pays pastoral visits to the external branches.
Branches – Some of these external branches are located in Australia, Austria, Belgium,
Benin, Botswana, Brizil, Burkina Faso, Canada, Cote d’Ivoire, France, Gabon, Germany,
Greece and Guinea.

Others are in Guinea Bissau, Guyana, Holland, Israel, India, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Lebanon,
Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nepal, Niger, Nigerial and Norway. The rest are
in Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Tanzania, The Gambia, Togo,
UK, Ukraine, USA, Zambia, Zimbabwe.
Missionaries have been sent mainly from Ghana to most of these countries. A few of the
foreign branches have largely indigenous members. In the light of such developments, the
Church is working at turning out indigenous clergy to main the foreign branches.
The rapid growth of the Church has not been without some difficulties. First, there is the
problem of communication barrier and cultural practices which the missionaries must grapple

with; the task of providing accommodation for the missionaries and their families and the lack
of land to build chapels.
Volatile political situations in some countries have made the spread of the gospel very
difficult. In predominantly Islamic states, it is not easy to establish churches. Also, the poor
living conditions of the members in some of the Church’s host nations puts extra logistical
burden on the Church to alleviate their economic hardship to make the gospel very
meaningful to the people.

Missions Committees
Missions Committees – To create interest in missions work among the laity of the Church and
raise funds for missionary outreaches in other countries, Area, District and Local Missionary
Committees have been established to organize and coordinate such activities at various

Missions Funds
Missions Fund – The Missions Board authorizes the International Missions Office to disburse
grants meant for the foreign branches for structural development, especially, and the salaries
of the administrative staff. Some of the foreign branches have opened National Missionary
Accounts for the promotion of mission work.
The two major sources of funding for missions work are:
1. the offerings taken throughout the local churches on the first Sunday of every month;
2. proceeds from the Annual McKeown’s Week (named after the founder of the Church)
to remind members of his missionary exploits and for them to support the missions

Missions Status
Missionary Status – The Church recognizes two categories of missionaries, namely
Ministerial Missionary and Associate Missionary. The former is a person who holds apostolic,
prophetic, evangelistic or pastoral credentials/whose appointment to such an office by the
International Executive Council has been approved by General Council for missions work.
Such a person must accept the Church’s tenets and must have gained ministerial experience
in The Church of Pentecost. The latter must produce reference and be endorsed by an
acceptable Pentecostal Church or organization. He shall accept the tenets of the Church and
its mission policy.
