Bishop Samuel N. Mensah

Founder of the Full Gospel Church International (FGCI) is calling on all Christians to liberate themselves from the fear of contracting Covid-19 and go to church.

Bishop Samuel N. Mensah’s comment comes after the refusal of many Christians to partake in church activities despite the President lifting the ban on church service.

According to him, the “enemy” wants to put fear in the lives of church people regardless of the detailed protection services put in place for them.

“For some of us for four months we haven’t been to church… This is the moment we can go to church,” he said in a video posted on Facebook.

Bishop Sammy stated that it is surprising people have been moving to their offices, market places, can travel, sit in vehicles for hours and yet seem to be afraid of the virus only when it is time for church.

“Something is wrong. There is an error there. If you can go to the work place for eight hours, travel for three or more hours and you’re not scared of the disease, I guarantee you the church is a safe place,” he said.

Bishop Sammy added that many churches have put in place all the health protocols outlined by the Religious Affairs Ministry to ensure the safety of the people.

He stated that with all the needed protocols in place, people are safer in church than they are outside.

“I speak to every church person, arise take up your bible now and go to church. Put on your dancing shoes and go back to church. Let me see you in church celebrating the goodness of God. Let us now liberate ourselves, take away the fears and come back to church.”
