Freedom Chapel International, a Pentecostal and Charismatic Christian Church based in Accra, Ghana, has changed its name to The Lord’s PARLIAMENT International Church (Parliament Chapel) through a divine direction that gives members the authority under the leadership of the Almighty God.
The church, which begun some 18 years ago, by Apostle Francis Amoako Attah, has branches and affiliations across the country characterised by the immense outreach project and the massive contribution to the prayer life line of the nation and the general revolution of Christianity across the world.
At a well-attended church ceremony to outdoor the new name, Bishop Dominic Newlove Allotey from New York, who officially commissioned the church into a new era, preached that Freedom is the manifestation of one being in slave, bondage but was saved by grace and that for the church to move from the era into a new era was a glorifying situation.
According to him, until Christians know the purpose of their stay on earth, they will continue to abuse their living and the blessings that God has given to them.
He told the congregation that one must identify his or her purpose for which God has created him and work towards fulfilling that purpose on earth with all that he has so as to glorify God.
Bishop Dominic Newlove Allotey growth expectations always come with change and that changing Freedom Chapel into PARLIAMENT Chapel is a great beginning of wonderful things to come in the lives of members.
Meanwhile, in an interview with the founder and General Overseer of Freedom Chapel International now PARLIAMENT Chapel International, Rev Apostle Francis Amoako Attah, explained that the change in name was synonymous to greatness and fulfillment of God’s purpose.
According to him, Abram had his name changed to Abraham to fulfill God’s purpose for his life of becoming the father of all nations; Jacob had his name changed to Israel, Simeon had his name changed to Peter (Petro) and that all these happened because God wanted to bless them and make them greater to His own glory.
He said: “God wants to take us to another level where we can use God’s government to work, initiate God’s laws and follow them. We are ambassadors of Christ on earth and we must live in that government to know His plans and purpose for our lives.”
According to Apostle Francis Amoako Attah, God told his people that a time shall come when anything they shall say shall be sanctioned in heaven and until you belong to that law making House (Parliament Chapel) you don’t have a say.
Touching on his 18 years’ journey, Apostle Francis Amoako Attah described the journey as a tedious one, but thanked God for giving him the strength to move on and be stronger even when the storm seemed greater.
