An Apostle with the Church of Pentecost, Mike Kwame Etrue,has said the value of Christ’s death can best be communicated through lifestyle changes and not theology.
“The truth is that, it takes our lifestyle or public life to give
meaning to others about the Jesus we have encountered” he preached to youths at the Pentecost International Worship

know the hope of our calling as Christians”, the Kaneshie
Area Head said.
