In upholding the propagation of the gospel and edification of the new members, the Ecclesiastical District of Central Europe held evangelical missions on July 28 and 29, 2023 followed by a “Welcome, My Brethren” activity on July 30 in various places of worship in the countries supervised by the district.
The district oversees the local congregations and group worship services (GWS) of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) in Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Uzbekistan.
In the evangelical missions, Brother Joel Catalan, district supervising minister, together with ministers and ministerial workers in the district, delivered a biblical lesson about the remaining hope and solution for people’s tribulations in this life.
“Our ecclesiastical district is united with Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, Executive Minister, in the intensified work of propagation,” Brother Catalan said. “Church officers and brethren invited guests to listen to the words of our Lord God because in these difficult times, we need God’s inspiration through His words, most of all, the truth is needed to be saved on Judgment Day.”
“Activities like this have been a part of our lives as members of the Church Of Christ because we comply with the teaching of our Almighty God to share our faith with people and become instruments for God to call people in the true Church Of Christ,” said Brother Gerry Aliermo, resident minister of the Local Congregation of Frankfurt City, Germany.
Meanwhile, in the “Welcome, My Brethren” activity, the brethren warmly received the newly-baptized members and guests gathered in various places of worship. The Frankfurt City Congregation served as the host site.
“Being a Church member is significant in my life because by knowing the truth taught from the Bible, I’m assured that I’m in the right Church, and thus, will receive salvation on the Day of Judgment,” Jean-Paul Schindler, head deacon of Ravensburg, Germany GWS, expressed. — With reports from Alyssandra Martinez and Nenette Catalan of INC News Section
