Despite the ongoing pandemic, the Church Of Christ in two ecclesiastical districts in Canada continue to flourish as they conduct holy baptisms, April of this year.
On April 26, the Manitoba Ecclesiastical District conducted simultaneous baptisms of new converts. The district supervising minister, Brother Sidney Santos, officiated the holy gathering at the house of worship of Winnipeg South Local Congregation. Another one was held at the Local Congregation of Saskatoon’s house of worship led by Brother Rodrigo Malacad Jr., assistant district supervising minister.
Before the baptismal proper, the candidates for baptism were taught about having a sincere heart and strong faith to endure hardships and persecutions in order to remain active in their divine calling and be certain of the promised salvation.
From the confines of their homes, other brethren in the district were also able to witness the sacred occasion through videoconferencing.
Four days later, this time in the Ecclesiastical District of Calgary, another baptism was conducted on April 30. The holy gathering was held at the house of worship of Capitol Hill Local Congregation.
In the study of God’s words led by Brother Ramil Macaspac, assistant district supervising minister, a biblical lesson about the importance of receiving true baptism in the Church Of Christ was taught to the baptismal candidates.
Amidst these uncertain times, Church members in Canada vowed to continue to intensively share their faith to many people. — With reports from INC News Section
