As one of the manifestations of the Lord God’s graces and blessings, more and more people are called to render true services and worship of Him in the true Church Of Christ. In the Tokyo, Japan Ecclesiastical District, new converts to the true faith were added into the Lord’s flock on August 27, 2021, which was held in two venues.
From the Saitama Congregation’s house of worship, which served as the host site, the preaching of God’s words by Brother Manny Benedicto during the baptismal service was livestreamed to that of the Okinawa Congregation.
The district supervising minister taught from the Bible that the true worshipers are those who joined the Church Of Christ. Not only are they certain that their worship and services are acceptable to God but most importantly, he said, they have the hope of receiving salvation on Judgment Day. He encouraged the would-be members to prioritize worship services no matter what.
After receiving God’s teachings, the candidates for baptism gathered in both venues took their oath of membership, followed by their immersion to water for the final stage of their process in their admission into the Iglesia Ni Cristo and thus receiving the right and duty of serving the Lord.
“It is how God manifests His love because before the world ends, people are given the chance to become members of the Church Of Christ,” Brother Benedicto said, in an interview, regarding the importance of conducting the true baptism.
He added: “That is why we praise and glorify our Almighty God because more people are continuously being added into the Church that will receive the promised salvation when Judgment Day comes.” — With reports from INC News Section
