The Church Of Pentecost Membership Constitutes 11.3% Of Ghana’s Total Population


The Church of Pentecost continues to grow by leaps and bounds as new persons are daily won for Christ through the church.

As of December 2023, the church, which is one of the leading classical Pentecostal churches in the world, has a total membership of 3,864,355 in Ghana alone, representing a growth of 7.4% of the previous figure, resulting in a total membership of 4,534,644 worldwide.

‘This represents a significant proportion of the 2023 estimated Ghanaian population of 34,121,985, with the Church’s membership accounting for 11.3%’.

The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, who doubles as the President of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), disclosed this during his State-of-the-Church Address (SOCA) at the opening ceremony of the 18th Extraordinary Council Meeting at the Pentecost Convention Centre, Gomoa Fetteh, on Wednesday, May 1, 2028.

Apostle Nyamekye was full of praise to God and acknowledged the grace of God upon the church that has pushed it to remarkable progress. He urged the church populace to continue to galvanise efforts to ensure that numerical growth is translated into transformed people at all spheres.

The Chairman was also grateful to the clergy, laity and the entire membership of the church for their individual and corporate efforts at ensuring the church continues to grow in leaps and bounds to the glory of God. He observed that the efforts of the members and the leadings of the Holy Spirit are pivotal in ensuring growth and relevance of the church in society.

Apostle Nyamekye called on the members to work at daily maturity in Christ and live lives worthy of emulation to be practical examples of the gospel they preach.

‘Our sincere prayer is that our growing numbers will continue to contribute to the realisation of our mandate to transform every sphere of society with the values and principles of the Kingdom of God as we unleash the whole church for this purpose,’ he concluded, adding, ‘We humbly attribute this growth to the grace of God.’
