And with his whole heart, responded to his divine calling to serve the Church, the Body of Christ, as an Apostle, Intercessor and Pastor. He is blessed by the grace of God both to preach and teach the Word of God. He is a Prayer Intercessor for Christ and firmly believes in the power of Prayer as a weapon made available for every Child of God and the Church.

He worked as a Missionary among the unreached peoples group at the countryside and later as Research Assistant with the Ghana Evangelism Committee (GEC). Afterwards, he continued ministering as a missionary and church planter in Ghana and has travelled across the country promoting missionary work and training missionaries everywhere he goes.

In 1988, God used him to establish the “LIBERATION MISSION FOR CHRIST” where he now serves as the President of the Mission and Pastor of LIBERATIONHOUSE CHAPEL.
Ed Arcton is also the founder of “Center for World Prayer Command” and has being in the forefront, promoting intercessory ministry among the Body of Christ and fulfilling the commands and demands of the Lord when He said ‘…these I will bring to my Holy Mountain and give them JOY in my HOUSE OF PRAYER. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my HOUSE will be called a HOUSE OF PRAYER for all Nations,” (Isaiah: 56:7).
PASSION FOR THE TRUTH.
Above all, Ed‘s passion is knowing and loving the truth of God. Living and proclaiming this truth of God, as revealed and established in the Holy Scripture is the ultimate truth for all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. He does this with great passion, commitment and love for the Lord.
The truth of God wherever it touches, liberates all from the captivity of darkness and from the slave chain of satanic liars and the control of deception. Jesus said “…you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free,” (John 8: 32). Ed believes that the Truth of God brings light and life to all who receive it in faith, for the Bible says that “…faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God,”(Romans 10:17).
JESUS CHRIST is the TRUTH OF GOD, the WORD OF GOD, the WISDOM OF GOD, and HE IS GOD who became the SON OF MAN to redeem us from sin, death and Satan so that we may have Eternal life through Him alone. Sharing this truth of God, Ed believes, honors and glorifies GOD and the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who is the image of the invisible God manifested in the flesh. “…and the Word became flesh and dwells among us,” (John 1:14).
Our God is magnified, exalted and worshiped when the truth of Him is known and accepted anywhere, everywhere and at any place. God is seen, heard and believed as people behold Him in His only begotten Son Jesus Christ the LORD. Jesus said “I am the WAY, the TRUTH and THE LIFE.” The Holy Scripture says, “The Son of God is the radiance of God’s Glory and the exact representation of his Being, sustaining all things by His powerful word,” (Hebrews 1:3 NIV).
It is Ed’s belief that we must seriously take the Bible as God’s Holy Word and read the Bible daily to hear God speak to us directly from His Word which helps develop our love for the Truth. The Holy Bible is God’s ABSOLUTE TRUTH and the constitution of our Christian life and faith.
Rev Arcton as known and called is an Ordained Minister of the gospel with an unquestioned character and integrity. He presently lives in the city of Accra with his family, serving the Lord Jesus Christ and His church.
Ed Arcton persistently declares that; “My vision and mission is to take the Living and Powerful WORD OF GOD in order to explain and expand the truth of God’s Holy Word to everyone wherever he is, with deep conviction, passion, great boldness and in the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit”.
Ed would always conclude a message or conversation with Apostle Paul’s affirmation, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me”. (Galatians 2:20 NIV).
