For their edification in the true Christian faith they would formally embrace on their upcoming baptism, the prospective members from all local congregations in the Ecclesiastical District of Catanduanes received essential biblical instruction during a special gathering.
Held at the house of worship of the Local Congregation of Virac on April 23, 2023, the special gathering was officiated by Brother Dante Masongsong, district supervising minister.
“Ensuring those in the process of joining the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) are true believers is according to God’s will,” said Brother Masongsong. “Thus, activities like this are of great help to them because, during these occasions, they receive God’s words that edify them in the faith.”
“Due to the help and support of the ministers and ministerial workers in the district, the purpose of this special gathering was successfully carried out, that is, bringing spiritual upliftment to the prospective members,” said Brother Dominador Alquiros Jr., the district Light of Salvation overseer.
“I’m all the more inspired to continue on listening to God’s teachings. I hope to receive my baptism,” said Dan Mark Delanter who attended the sacred service.
Another prospective member, Julie Vargas, said, “I will hold on to God’s words because that is the most effective way for me to overcome all the obstacles in life as I continue serving God.” — With reports from Lace Rodriguez of the INC News Section
