Eager for the most awaited day in their lives, candidates for baptism traveled and arrived early to their respective venues. One was in the house of worship of Nagoya Local Congregation where Brother Amante Rodriguez, district supervising minister, officiated the holy gathering. The other one was led by Brother Herbert Lazala, assistant district supervising minister, in Okayama Local Congregation.
From the Holy Scriptures, they emphasized the importance of receiving the holy baptism inside the true Church Of Christ. Before their baptism in water, the would-be members were also encouraged to continue to put their hope in the Lord God and to hold on firmly to their Church membership for them to attain the promised salvation come the Day of Judgement.
The newly baptized brethren promised to all the more be active in their worship and services to the Lord and in all the activities the Church Administration launches.
Everyone in attendance ensured that health protocols were carefully observed during the entirety of the sacred occasions. — With reports from INC News Section
