He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved

 I am happy to announce another baptism on Thursday.  Every Thursday afternoon I go to the Sombertini area of Arusha and work with the preacher there, Dominic Owaga.  We have studied with his brother in-law, Joseph, several times on the subject salvation.

Like so many, Joseph was confused by the many different and varied doctrines churches teach on Salvation.  You hear people saying you are saved by faith only.  Others say you are saved by obeying the 10 commandments. Still others say that you are saved if you pray the sinners pray.  These divergent teachings are confusing and are WORNG!

Jesus put it as plainly as possible as is recorded in Mark 16:16
“He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.”

So on Thursday Joseph, through his belief was baptised for his salvation.

  After our study, as we were about to leave, Joseph told us he had to be baptised "now!"  Dominic knew of a little river close by, so that was where we went.  Joseph's wife (a Christian) and baby came along too.

We were all so happy by this new birth into Christ.  Please pray for this little Christian family

‘Now why do you delay? Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name.’ 
Acts 22:16
