Five people in the South New Zealand Conference have recently committed their lives to Jesus.

Three people were baptised at Wicklow Street Adventist Church, Clifton. A further two people joined Harvest Adventist Fellowship Church, Georgetown, through profession of faith.

“This was an especially joyful time for myself as a pastor, due to the fact this high day for the church was not due to my efforts but rather the efforts of others,” local church pastor Gordon Gosset said.

“A healthy and thriving church is one that doesn’t rely on the pastor to do all the disciple-making but rather that every member is involved.” 

Pastor Gosset said the baptismal candidates had spent time studying the Scriptures with other people and were nurtured within the church through worship and teaching as well as through involvement in community outreach projects.

The fellowships down here are all very active in their outreach to the communities which bodes well for the future in the South,” Pastor Gosset said. “It was certainly a great way to get the year off to a vibrant start and to see the value of a functioning church body.”
