Assemblies of God Church launches new TV station

The Assemblies of God Church on Sunday launched a new TV station to widen its outreach.

The GH₵2 million Ghanaian free to air television network known as AGTV would among others, show a variety of programmes including sermons, gospel music, news bulletins and sports highlights.

The General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God, Ghana, Reverend Professor Paul Frimpong-Manso, launching it in Accra, said the intent for AGTV was not only for profit“but also to promote the work of God and recover cost, especially in the area of missions.”

Rev. Frimpong-Manso said the vision for setting up a television station came up during the advent of the COVID-19 when there was a ban on all public gatherings, so service could not be held physically.

Hence, he noted that he had to revisit the idea of a television station for the Church, saying further that it would reach out to more people with the gospel of Christ and win them over.

“With about 6000 AG churches and almost 700,000 membership across the country, the TV station owned by AG was handy in reaching the entire nation for Christ.


“We believe we have the wherewithal to reach the ends of Ghana and the rest of the world with the gospel since the vision of the TV has been fulfilled,” he added.


Rev. Frimpong-Manso, therefore, urged members and pastors of the church to continue with their goodwill messages and sermons to help add up to other programmes that would be telecast.

Indicating that the church had delayed a bit in setting up its station, he stressed that “though we are a bit late in putting up the television station for our AG members, I know we would rise higher in all our endeavors.”


Rev.Frimpong-Mansoexpressed the church’s outmost gratitude to all its pastors and members for their immense support contributed in making the vision of the AGTV attainable.
