Bethel Kwabenya Prayer Ministry (BKPM) in the Ga East District of the Greater Accra Region will on Saturday, April 20, 2019 commission its new temple “The Solomon Temple”.
The event which is on the theme: “I’ll Build My Church, And The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail Against It” (Matt. 16:18, KJV) will have in attendance some important dignitaries including Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Prof. Aaron Mike Ocquaye, as a Special Guest of Honour.
The temple which is named after the Biblical Solomon (Bethel Prayer Cathedral) was the dream of the General Overseer of BKPM, Prophet Douglas Nana Tih after he was ordained and anointed by the late Bishop Owusu Tabiri, the Founder of Bethel Prayer Ministry International (BPMI) as his next successor.
In a statement signed and issued to the media at the weekend, the General Overseer of BKPM indicated that, the crowning achievement of his work as a Pastor was the erection of a magnificent temple (The Solomon Temple) in Kwabenya.
Supporting his claim with the Scripture, Prophet Nana Tih in the statement said, “Solomon’s father, King David, had wanted to build a great temple for God a generation earlier, as a permanent resting place for the Ark of the Covenant which contained the Ten Commandments. However, God forbade him (King David) from doing so”.

“You will not build a house for my name for you are a man of battles and have shed blood”, (1Chronicle 28:3).
According to the statement, as God placed on the heart of Solomon to build Him a permanent resting place so did He (God) told His Servant, Prophet Douglas Nana Tih to do same for him when he was ordained by the late Bishop Owusu Tabiri.
Impregnated with this dream, the statement said, Prophet Nana Tih ensured that, he did not disobey God.
“He (Prophet Nana Tih prayed to God to give him strength, knowledge and resources to put up a befitting temple for Him (God), hence the BKPM new temple,” the statement said.
Since its formation, Bethel Kwabenya Prayer Ministry has played a major role in the transformation of Ghanaians, particularly, the youth in Kwabenya and its environs where too many unproductive, unsupervised children move about without proper parental care.
For instance, the church has been able to build a community school for the less privileged in the area including orphans where most of the children are being educated free of charge.
It has also embarked on a tree planting project as well as establishment of a sachet water company (Bethel Ice) which has provided jobs for a section of the unemployed youth in the community.
