Yesterday, we had the joy of baptising three Iranian brothers. All three, along with another Iranian lady who has previously been baptised elsewhere, were brought into full membership of Oldham Bethel Church. You can see their baptisms in the videos below.
We believe, at Oldham Bethel Church, that baptism marks our entrance to the visible, local church. Upon their baptism, each of these three men entered into membership of our local church. The final video shows us formally welcoming our four new Iranian members into full membership of the church. They even had the joy of attending their first members’ meeting immediately after the service, lucky ducks!
As I was uploading these videos and they were being turned into the correct format, it tickled me that when they had uploaded each read, ‘conversion complete’.
