Pentecostal megachurch and denomination founded in Lagos, Nigeria, Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has donated an amount of GH₵11,500 towards the construction of the National Cathedral of Ghana in fulfilment of an annual budgetary allocation towards the project.
The national secretary of the RCCG, Samuel Kofi Anna Wilson, who made the donation to the Secretariat at State Protocols Department yesterday said the Church will continue mobilising funds to support the project.
Receiving the donation, Executive Director of the National Cathedral of Ghana, Dr. Paul Opoku-Mensah, commended the church for its contributions, and affirmed that the essence of the National Cathedral project is not just to promote the Ghanaian Christian faith but that of Africa in its entirety.
“Just as the building of the Temple of Solomon was an epoch-making event not only in Israel, but also in the whole world, we believe the building of the National Cathedral is an epochal event not only in Ghana, but also in the rest of Africa,” he stated yesterday.
Developed as the “Home for African Christianity,” the Executive Director reiterated that the design, described as an “Architectural Expression of African Christianity,” captures the moment when Christianity became a significant force on Africa’s cultural landscape.
He added that the project also includes a Bible Museum of Africa, which will be the largest Bible Museum in the world, with a thematic focus on the role of Africa and Africans in the Bible as well as the history and contemporary place of the church in Africa and the African Diaspora.
