My church has had over 5 familes since the start of Covid Join our flock! We have had about 12 baptisms ( mine included ) and won the soul of a 72 year old man just a few months ago!

My church has been growing, and it's such a blessing to see and be a part of!

For someone that don't understand what Saved means, it means to be born again in Christ Spiritually. Thanks 😇

We know what it is but my point is nobody is staying away from our church except when they are sick like they've always done without the goverment having to mandate healthy people staying away.

And a little girl was saved two weeks ago which I highly doubt would have occured over Zoom.

I would like to add that one member has started bringing to "undocumented workers" to church. The one man needs one of our members to translate the sermon into Spanish for him. Let's pray they get saved.

Again, doubtful this would take place on Zoom.

Nice, I pray that he harden not his heart. I was talking earlier about new visitors, that might not know what it is to be Saved. Remember not all that visitors are born again. Thanks

This is amazing! I've been wanting to do the baptism for over a year now.  I've had various opportunities to do it before, but the doctrine at this particular church was faulty, they wanted me to get baptised to become to 'be saved', they fully believe in baptismal regeneration and I refused baptism there. They told me I could only become a 'sister' after baptistm.

 I hope to find a sound-doctrine church in my local area that will soon allow baptisms.

Soul-winning as usual is going on at our former work (we handed the work over to a national pastor). In fact, tomorrow, Saturday, we are going on door-to-door visitation as usual. The church has had visitors as usual also.

Any local Baptist churches?

I'm not sure if anyone has been saved lately in our church services or not. I know we had a few baptisms a few months back, and they were mainly youth baptisms. I'm not knocking that, but in the last five years I haven't heard of ANY adults being saved through our church or IN our church services. That worries me about the ministry of our church in a way. There is no active program to go out and reach people for Christ as there is in the IFB churches. We can do it individually, but there is no corporate program for it. I believe this is one reason why the Lord has had my wife and I looking into other churches the past year or so.

Two separate missionaries in Taiwan (which is on soft lockdown now) have recently had people saved through their online services. One was a lady watching the online Sunday school service with her daughter and called the missionary to come to her house to explain salvation in detail and she was saved. The other was similar, watching the online service with her daughter and was saved. The gospel being preached is the main thing no matter if it's in person or online.

It seems like most church growth here is mostly from people switching churches. I see people go up to get prayed for after the sermon but it doesn't seem like many get saved that way. 

We do have a lot of baptisms and people getting saved because of K-12 school that is a ministry of the church and literally attached to it. The teachers must have academic credentials and be a member in good standing at the church. The salvation of the kids that attend there is just as high of a priority as the education, and the church is used for many school activities to show the kids the relationship between the two. Sometimes the parents will get saved as well as a result of the child's decision.
