Apostle Samuel Amponsah Frimpong has called on his congregants to love, honor and respect their elders as quoted in 1Thessalonians 5:12-13, as according to him, this is a precious commodity of trust in a healthy congregation like Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI).
He also asked them to remember their leaders, those who spoke the word of God and consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.
According to Apostle Amponsah Frimpong who has been elected to the high office of the General Secretary of the church, the CACI ought to spend time with their shepherds so they can watch, learn and emulate them.
Delivering his last speech at his send off service on Sunday 5th May, 2019 Apostle Amponsah Frimpong also touched on special role women play in the Church and why they must be respected especially the aged.
When the church began on the day of Pentecost, women as well as men came into it in great numbers and there were distinctions made in conditions of membership between sexes.
Furthermore, the importance of women to the church is reflected by the concern which the CACI had for women who needed care and help especially the aged.
The Church believes in the Holy Trinity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; the father being the Supreme God, maker of heaven and earth, and the creator of all creatures. Therefore Christian teaching of the Trinity states that God exists eternally as three persons who, while distinct, are equally and fully God.
Apostle Samuel Amponsah Frimpong on behalf of his family took a moment and thanked the congregation and showed appreciation to the time they have dedicated to them.
Apostle Amponsah Frimpong was thankful to the Lord and the CACI for the honor done them and extended their heartfelt gratitude to all who came in their numbers to grace the occasion with their presence.
Apostle Samuel Amponsah Frimpong is now the General Secretary of the Christ Apostolic Church International after 6 years of dedicated and conscientious service to the Lord and the Church.

Neither the charm of a successful career in law nor the Diplomatic Service was able to distract Apostle Amponsah-Frimpong from responding to the prophetic word upon his life.
While a baby, Apostle S. A. Addo prophesied of the call of God on his life and did caution themother that she should not allow any prominent secular profession to disengage her son from becoming a minister of God.
To help fulfill God’s call, Apostle S. A. Addo advised that the boy should stay with people of God. Consequently, the boy Amponsah-Frimpong was made to stay with Prophetess Margaret Anane and, later on, Apostle Owusu Ffie (all of blessed memory).
As he was growing up, several men and women of God continued to confirm the above prophecy. That explains why Apostle Amponsah-Frimpong abandoned his profession as a lawyer for the prize of the high calling.
