Christian Faithfuls have been told that there would have been no remission of sin without the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Rev. Pastor Genty Eyole Ndeley told the congregation that gathered at the Koke (pronounced koh-keh) River on Sunday 24 April 2011 to witness the baptism of 11 new converts that there would have been no hope of life after death if Jesus had remained in the grave. Preaching on Easter Sunday, the servant of God prayed Christians that all they need to do is to worship God faithfully since Christ has done it all for them.
This baptismal ceremony was organised for new converts of Charity Baptist Church, Wova (Bova), and Philadelphia Baptist Church, Wonakanda, as a public declaration of their faith in Christ Jesus. The Christians later assembled at Philadelphia Baptist Church, Wonakanda, for the Lords Supper. There, the Christians were reminded of the teaching, suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus whose blood gives salvation to humankind.
After sharing a common meal at the church, the congregation then led the newly baptised to their various homes singing songs of victory along the streets. Each of them was assigned spiritual partners with whom they can work to master the scripture and the Christianity race.
