In February this year, the intensive propagational efforts of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) members from the Ecclesiastical District of Mediterranean led to more baptisms being held in various countries where it maintains congregations. These were officiated by the district supervising minister, Brother Ramil Regino.
On February 27, baptisms were held in the place of worship of the local congregations of Athens, Greece; and Nicosia, Cyprus, where Brother Danny Pregillana, the district edification overseer, led the baptism. Just a day before, February 26, a baptism was held at the place of worship of the Local Congregation of Malta. Meanwhile, on February 13, another baptism was held at the Tel-Aviv, Israel Local Congregation’s place of worship.
Expressing the collective sentiment of the brethren from the district, Brother Regino said in an interview, “We appreciate the constant love and support of our dearest Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, in all the Church’s holy endeavors one of which is to remain active in sharing our faith. We firmly believe that this is the will of God so that many people will come to the knowledge of the truth and receive the hope of salvation.”
One of those who received baptism was James Albert Williams from Athens, Greece. “I feel so blessed,” he expressed. “I promise to share the message [of salvation] with my friends and family so they, too, can partake in the blessings that I have received.”
“All the teachings [upheld] in the Church Of Christ are written in the Bible. Also, there is no racial discrimination here,” said Joseph Emmanuel Coker, a newly baptized member from the Local Congregation of North Cyprus. — With reports from INC News Section
