As a result of the unwavering efforts of the brethren in the Ecclesiastical District of Mediterranean in propagating the pure gospel, people continue to be baptized into the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ). Among the said baptisms was that held by Albania Group Worship Service (GWS) for the first time on September 24, 2023 in Divjaka Beach in Albania.

Brother Ramil Regino, district supervising minister, officiated at the holy gathering. In his Bible-based homily prior to the baptism, he reminded the candidates for baptism that as they become members of the Church, God expects them to be obedient to all His commands.

“I am joyful for it is here in the Church Of Christ where I gained the true faith,” Randy Pamittan, one of the newly baptized, said.

Joseph Tarun, also one of the newly baptized, shared, “I am happy to be baptized in the Church Of Christ for, through the true baptism, my sins were forgiven.”

“Receiving true baptism in the Church Of Christ is indeed a great blessing which nothing in this world can compare with. By virtue of the true baptism, not only does one become forgiven of his sins, but also, one will have the right to be among those blessed to be saved on Judgment Day,” Brother Paul Jerome Hernandez, resident ministerial worker, stated. “It is thus, vital for all members of the Church to continue helping in the intensive propagation of God’s words so that more people will come to the knowledge of the truth, and also become among those who will be saved on Judgment Day.” — With reports from Rowena Castro of INC News Section
