Celebrating Baptisms

30 Young People Make Decision for Christ
August 17, 2021

TULSA, OKLA. – The Zomi Tulsa Seventh-day Adventist Church has grown rapidly over the last couple of years. Their membership consists mostly of children, youth and young adults. At the beginning of 2021, a couple of church leaders committed to studying the Bible with their young people. They used the “It Is Written” Bible study guides over the last few months to do a weekly Bible study. At the end, 30 young people made a commitment to be baptized. On Saturday, June 26, the church celebrated as these 30 young people walked into the baptismal waters to be baptized in the name of our Lord. Daniel Ortega, conference youth director, shared a message to encourage both the baptismal candidates and their church parents and church leaders before stepping into the water. Ortega was assisted by Oklahoma Conference President James Shires and Executive Secretary Apple Park in performing the baptisms.
