Praise God for a successful church launch March 21! Three souls were saved. Several more new people have begun attending faithfully since the campaign week. (Read more…)
Fifteen believers publically professed their faith in Christ on Easter Sunday by being baptized. It was a special day as we saw our labor come to fruition. Many family and friends of those being baptized came to church for the special event, bringing our total attendance to an all-time record of 88. These visitors heard the Gospel, not only from the preaching, but from the 15 who shared their salvation testimony just before they entered the water.
This was James’ first time to baptize, and first in line was our youngest son, Josiah.
Teaching Others Also…
Anyone who walks through the door of IBI will soon learn that we take seriously the mandate to “…commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also” (2 Tim. 2:2). Discipleship classes are available for believers at every level, and everyone is encouraged to be involved in a small group. Please pray for us as we begin a new round of classes at the end of this month. Also, continue to pray for capable men to be willing to take on leadership positions (teachers, deacons) in the church.
