Nine congregations from the Dominican Republic's Central District gathered this month to celebrate a day of baptisms. The event was held at the Dominican Nazarene Seminary where 36 people were baptized.
After the baptisms, they participated in the Lord’s Supper in a special church service.
“It was wonderful to hear the salvation testimonies of the brethren that were baptized," said District Superintendent Ernesto Bathermy. "We glorify the Lord’s great work in our district.”
The joint baptism ceremony came up during a pastors' meetings where the participants expressed the desire to have such events at least twice each year. Several additional congregations plan to participate in the next ceremony.
