Saturday Water Baptismal Service

Special Solo: Ginny Friesen sang “Then I Met the Master.”

Sermon: Olusola Adesope, pastor in Pullman, Washington, preached from Matthew 28:19-20, explaining that water baptism is an outward symbol of an inward work that God has done; the Bible does not teach that water baptism brings salvation, but that a person has to be saved to be qualified to be water baptized.

Candidates: Eight girls/ladies and twenty-six boys/men were baptized in water.

Watch the full service in the Media Center.
