“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;” – Mark 16: 15-16
A few new folk have been added to our fellowship in the last few months and on Thursday the 6th of November 2014 two of our group were baptised.
Elizabeth Matthee testified that she had recently become a believer and was excited about her new found faith and even though she had just had an operation on her right arm and was all bandaged up, she was not going to let that stop her from being baptised
Maryanne Collett testified that she had been a Christian but had backslidden. She had this physical disability which impacted negatively on her relationships. This was a result of a heart operation. Even family were unkind to her. In spite of this she always knew that God loved and protected her. Despite negative medical predictions God blessed her with a beautiful baby son
We then joined the candidates in singing the Chorus “I have decided to follow Jesus...” We had witnessed the two baptismal candidates who had made a declaration that they had died with Christ and had risen to a new Life in Him.
May God bless them as they each journey with Him.
