BAPTISM IN OCTOBER 2023
It is written in Romans 6:3-4, “Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.” Baptism symbolizes a cleansing process in Jesus. The old life has been put to death and resurrection brings us to a new, transformed life.
In October, we have witnessed 44 IFGF church members from different regions, who made the decision to give their lives to Jesus. On October 8, baptism took place at IFGF Lolofaoso, located in Nias island, Indonesia, where eleven individuals made the life-changing choice to receive Jesus as the Savior.
This transformative journey continued into the second week of this month, specifically on October 15, when IFGF Seattle held baptism for eight individuals. In the same week, IFGF Singapore also baptized three souls.
Additionally, we received other praise reports of baptism which were held on October 22 in different locations: IFGF Jakarta baptized three people, IFGF Karawaci baptized one person, and IFGF Medan baptized two people. By the end of the month, on October 29, IFGF Semarang baptized eleven individuals, and on the same day, five people were baptized at IFGF Bandung.

This great news brings us great joy as we witness our brothers and sisters choosing to have new life in Christ and declare their faith as followers of Jesus. Let us keep interceding for others to come to know Jesus and receive the gift of salvation from Him.
So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.– Galatians 3:26-27 (NIV)-
