St. Alban Anglican Church at Tema Community 1, on Sunday confirmed 14 children with a call on Christians to have firm faith in God.

The Anglican Bishop of Accra, Rt Rev. Dr Daniel Sylvanus Torto, preaching the sermon on Sunday, entreated Christians to be resolute, trust in God’s faithfulness and wait for his blessings.
He observed that recent happenings in Ghana indicated low standards of Christian values hence the need for Christians to have steadfast faith, live Christ-like lives and spread the word of God.
Rt Rev. Dr Torto acknowledged that temptations, trials and tribulations may befall them as a test of their faith but they should remain firm and not succumb to the pleasures of the world.
He admonished that they should let their lives and deeds reflect that of Christ and as much, influence and win souls from the secular world into Christianity.
Rt Rev. Dr Torto assured that there was divine protection from God adding, Psalm 91:9-14 states “He knows us by name and therefore has given his angels charge over us that we will not hit our feet against a stone”.
He urged ministers of the gospel, political leaders, directors and all in authority to be faithful to their calling and it shall come with a reward from God.
