With God’s help, the work of propagation of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) in Papua New Guinea continues to succeed. This is reflected in a series of baptism held recently in various congregations in the island country.

Baptisms were held on September 25, 26, 30, and October 2, further increasing the number of true Christians in this part of the world. Brother Mark Jayson Montes, Port Moresby Congregation resident minister, officiated the baptismal service at Ela beach on September 25; he also officiated the baptism at Toptown on September 30; and on October 2, he led another baptism at Wewak Beach, with Brothers Edmark Velasco and Alvin Santos, ministerial workers, assisting him.

Meanhwile, Brother Orlando Macayan, the assistant district supervising minister, led the baptism at Happy Village Poolside, in Port Moresby on September 26.

“I am happy to receive my baptism. I have been to many churches before. I decided to join the Church Of Christ because all the teachings I received are in the Bible,” said Lilian Iwaneke, a newly baptized member. “I will remain faithful in the Church as long as I live. I will invite my family members and friends to attend worship services.”

“With the love of the Almighty God and guidance of the Church Administration, brethren here in Papua New Guinea will continue to intensify the work of propagation, all for the glory of God,” said Brother Montes.

The congregations in Papua New Guinea are under the supervision of the Ecclesiastical District of Australia West. — With reports from INC News Section
