Repented AND baptised!

We always rejoice when believers obey the Lord's command to be baptized. As baptists we hold to the clear biblical teaching of 'Believer's Baptism' - ie not infant baptism or sprinkling or some other mode, but a full immersion following the new birth wrought by the Spirit.  In some cases, baptism follows salvation after many years as it is taught and better understood - and so we praise the Lord for His work of convincing and convicting in the lives of Betta and Adele.  Cameron is a young convert who early expressed a desire to be baptised.  We are so excited!  All three shared testimony and apart from the water in the baptismal pool (which was apparently Very Warm), there were also many watery eyes.
Lunch was a congenial affair as a large contingent of church family brought picnic food to the Scenic Reserve. 
Nick used the opportunity of an eager audience to expound some points of theology (but oh dear, just look at Graham in the background).
