Saturday Water Baptismal Service

Special: Kristi Riler sang “Born Again.”

Sermon: Edet Bassey, pastor in Elioparanwo, Port Harcourt, Nigeria, preached from Matthew 28:18-20 and said water baptism is a symbol of death to sin, the burial of the old man and the resurrection of life with Christ; it is for those who have repented of their sins and are living a life above sin.

Candidates: Sixteen ladies and seventeen men were baptized in water. (pictured above: Carter Luka smiles after being baptized)
