Twenty-two people were baptised on September 23 following a week-long evangelistic series held at the Napapar organised church in Rabaul, East New Britain Province, Papua New Guinea.
The series was conducted by resident minister Himson Puri. The baptisms have increased the membership of Napapar organised church to 407 people.
An appeal during the baptism resulted in an additional 27 men and women taking the stand to accept Jesus as their personal Saviour. Their baptism will happen in November during the next evangelistic series, which is planned to be held at one of Napapar’s hand churches: Gaulim.
In welcoming the newly baptised members, Minister Puri thanked them for accepting Jesus and encouraged them to be involved in the mission of the church—making disciples. Minister Puri also thanked the elders and those who have been actively involved in making disciples for their great commitment.
Following the baptism an agape feast was held to welcome the new members into the church family. Napapar organised church has been baptising people on a quarterly basis. It is a growing church and is preparing for PNG for Christ 2024.
