BEARWOOD'S FIRST BAPTISM
12th January 2017
The newly organised Bearwood Seventh-day Adventist church in Birminham, had its first baptism since being organised in May 2016. On Sabbath 31 December, ten individuals who had been receiving bible studies during the past year were baptised by Pastor Pardon Chenjerai, the outgoing local pastor on his last Sabbath with his congregation. Officiating minister, Pastor Samuel Appiah, led out in the baptismal service. The baptism was the first fruits of a dynamic revival by Ray Patrick. After the baptism, the church servcie continued in creative worship in the form of the sharing of Bible texts, personal testimony and songs in Twi (Ghana), Italian and English, praising God for His mercies. Each used the language they felt most comfortable with.
