Through the missionary efforts of the brethren from the Okwudor Extension, Nigeria, which is under the supervision of the Ecclesiastical District or Northern Africa, more Nigerians were added to the Church as the first-ever baptism in Port Harcourt, Rivers State Nigeria was held on March 13, 2024.

The historic occasion was officiated at by Brother Albert Alaan Jr., assistant district supervising minister. Prior to the prospective members’ baptism, he reminded them what they were already taught during their doctrinal instructions about the importance of becoming members of the Church Of Christ and remaining active therein for them to be saved on Judgment Day.

“I am so thankful to God that more of my fellow Nigerians have decided to become members of the Church Of Christ,” conveyed Brother Obinna Ukoma, resident ministerial worker of Okwudor Extension, who was instrumental in leading the Bible studies on doctrines of the newly baptized members.

One of them, Abraham Iboro Ezekiel, shared what convinced him the most to join the Church. “I was fascinated about the doctrine regarding the Messenger of God in these last days. I firmly believe that Brother Felix Y. Manalo was sent by God in order for man to know the truth.”

“I promise that I will be active in the worship service and help out in the work of propagation,” said another Nigerian native who was baptized, Samuel Tonni, adding, “I am also hoping to someday join the ministry.” — With reports from Obinna Ukoma
