Hallowed Temple International Church (HTIC) is now Upcity Church International (UCI). The unveiling was done by Rev. Dr. Robert Ampiah Kwofie last Sunday at the UCI headquarters in Redco Flats, Madina.
Explaining the reason for the name change, Founder and General Overseer of Upcity Church International (UCI), Rev. Carl Spencer said that this move was necessary following a divine instruction from God. “I spent time with God while in Nairobi, Kenya on a short holiday as he revealed the new identity and name to me as we journeyed through the book of Hebrews especially in chapter 11,” he said.
Rev. Spencer also added that people found difficulty pronouncing Hallowed Temple International Church, causing the church name to be abused with words such as Halloween, Hallod, Hallow etc.
Rev. Ekow Eshun preached on the theme “Walking in your New Identity”. He stressed that God is greatly committed to His church and Children. “For that reason, God will go all out to bless His Church and Children with either new experiences for people to give them a new name or God will give His children new identities which will create new experiences,” he added.
Others present at the occasion were Prophet William Addison (Eagle House Chapel International), Apostle Edwin Odonkor and Rev. Edward Odonkor (Treasure House Bible Church International), Rev. Bennet Eshun, Ps. William Abaya, Dr. S B Ofei and many others.
Rev. Carl Spencer, expressed his appreciation to all who graced the occasion with their presence, presents and prayer.
