Baptism at Church on November 12, 2010

We’re holding a baptism service on the second Friday of November, the 12th. Right now, we are setting up the baptistery of our church which is a metal box that fits one person. It is not as small as a steel drum container but quite larger that a bath tub and about 5 feet in height. We are excited to see the new believers who will be baptized.

Baptism, biblically, is a public profession of a person’s previously made decision to repent and make God first in his or her life. It is also done by immersion – in fact, the word baptism comes from the Greek word “baptizo” which means “to immerse or dip” in water.
