With the continuous unity of Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) members in the Ecclesiastical District of Nueva Vizcaya with the Church’s intensified propagation of God’s words, more new members received baptism on June 24, 2023.
Brother Fermin Pacquiao, the district supervising minister, officiated at the sacred occasion, which was held at the house of worship of the Solano Local Congregation.
In his Bible-based homily, Brother Fermin exhorted the candidates for baptism to cherish their membership in the Church Of Christ, which they were about to receive, and hold on to it until the day of salvation. He encouraged them to “be strong amid life’s trials, which is proven, among others, when they keep believing, trusting, and hoping for the great things that God can do in their lives.”
“I’ve been enlightened with the teachings of God upheld in the Church Of Christ, which was why I continued studying these,” said one of those newly baptized, Maribel Aguado from the Tuao Local Congregation. “I’m happy now that I’ve become a Church Of Christ member. I will never forsake praying to God, to express my faith, hope, and trust in Him, and on what He can do for my life. Also, I will not neglect the worship of Him,” she added. — With reports from Leona Hidalgo of INC News Section
