Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…Matthew 28:19
September, October and beginning of November represents a time of the year when most churches choose to schedule their baptisms. The reason behind this has to do with water availability, safety and the rainy season, as most churches do not have their own baptistery but, rather, they use local rivers/ponds.
Two Sundays ago I wrote about the baptism at Hope Baptist Church in Kachere, and this past Sunday we had another baptism, in Mpyupyu.
A total of 10 people publicly expressed their union with Christ in His death and resurrection, after giving a convincing testimony of their existing faith in Jesus Christ. Before all the witnesses seen and unseen, these Brothers and Sisters in Christ confessed Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior and expressed their decision to follow Him for the rest of their lives. Based on the profession of their faith, I proceeded to baptize them in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Can anyone withhold water for baptizing these people, who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?Acts 10:47
These are the names of those baptized, please lift them up in your prayers as they continue on this path of obedience and service to our Lord Jesus Christ: Hawa, Akupuza, Ivy, Gift, Sidreck, Beston, Aron, Lackson, Handson and Madalo.
