Great Day in Church Sunday - Baptism

The church was full

The Telebar quartet sang beautifully

Kevin Brown and Scott Holcomb played beautifully

Preparing for the baptism

Matej testified of his faith in Jesus as his personal Saviour

Matej about to be immersed - the Bible way.

Just coming back up out of the water (Camera would not focus fast enough to catch the immersion, but he definitely went all the way under - the Bible way.

Getting a few concluding remarks from the Pastor

We had a great day in church this past Sunday. Pastor Rajko Telebar baptized his youngest son, Matej, and many of the Telebar family and friends were in attendance to honor the special occasion.
We had a full church and everyone heard a gospel message.

It was so good to hear young Matej boldly and clearly answer his father (his Pastor), testifying to his personal faith in Christ for salvation.

Some Scriptures regarding baptism:  (First in Croatian and then English)

Djela Apostolska 8:36-39 I kad su tako putovali došli su do neke vode i eunuh je rekao: “Gledaj voda! Što me sprečava da budem kršten?”
37 A Filip je rekao: “Ako vjeruješ od svega svoga srca, možeš.” A on je odgovorivši rekao: “Vjerujem da je Isus Krist Sin Božji.”
38 I zapovjedio je da se zaustave kola. Tada su obojica sišla u vodu, i Filip i eunuh; i krstio ga je.
39 A kad su oni izašli iz vode, Duh Gospodinov je odnio Filipa, tako da ga eunuh više nije vidio, i on je otišao svojim putem radujući se.

Acts 8:36-39 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
 37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
 38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
 39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.

Poslanica Rimljanima 6:3-4  Ili ne znate da svi mi koji smo kršteni u Isusa Krista, u smrt smo njegovu kršteni?
4 Dakle, s njime smo ukopani po krštenju u smrt da bi, kao što je Krist bio uskrsnut od mrtvih po
slavi Očevoj, isto tako i mi hodili u novini života.

Romans 6:3-4  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Oh I feel so happy that is was such a good meeting but I'm also sad that we missed it. I sure love the Telebar family and all the children. I would have loved to be there.
I heard your sermon was great and we're praying for lasting results from it.
We're so glad you are there. I know we say it a lot but we sure mean it!!
