Brother Troy Gatchalian, assistant district supervising minister, led the sacred gathering of the would-be members before they were baptized by designated ministers.
From various congregations, the candidates for baptism, accompanied by the brethren who were instrumental to their conversion, gathered at the house of worship of the Local Congregation of Remedios-Lubao.
During the pre-baptismal service, Brother Gatchalian reminded them of the great importance of completely obeying God’s commands being taught by the Church Administration. He emphasized the need for having firm trust and holy fear in God to overcome hardships in life.
“The words of God taught to the would-be members are vital because these are what God expects from His chosen servants,” explained Brother Gatchalian. “God has a promise to those who are obedient to Him that He will bless them not only in this life, but most importantly, when Judgment Day comes.”
“I’m glad to receive the true baptism. Praise be to God for I was called into the true Church,” Avelino Isip, one of those who were baptized that day, expressed. — With reports from INC News Section
