Mount Druitt Samoan church (Sydney, NSW) recently hosted a significant baptismal ceremony, where 15 young people from their congregation and local community made a public commitment to their faith.
The baptisms were a direct result of a series of dedicated Bible study sessions, requested by the young baptismal candidates after attending the Pathfinder Camporee in January 2023.
Led by Pathfinder leaders and pastors, the Bible study sessions were conducted every Monday for five months.
“In preparation for this important step, the whole church dedicated a day of fasting in September for the Bible study group,” said church member Jochabed Leuluai.
The baptismal ceremony was marked by a full church, with family, friends and members of the local community in attendance. Additionally, staff and friends from Mountain View Adventist College were present to witness and support the young individuals’ decisions.
