A Harvest Of Souls For Christ At Chrisland University's 3rd Baptismal Service
Twenty-two Chrisland University students have made public commitments to devote their lives totally to Christ Jesus during a baptismal service on Sunday, 30th April, 2023.
By this step of faith, the students subsequently signified their interest to be baptized according to the biblical faith and Christian doctrine.
The service was held at the University Chapel with students, faculty and staff in attendance.
A music team and sermon by the University Chaplain, Rev. Juwon Onasanya commenced the service.
While addressing the audience and baptismal candidates, Rev. Juwon Onasanya said baptism is the initiatory rite of the church into her membership, adding that it is administered to old and young, male and female.
He added that baptism is obedience into the relationship of the Lord Jesus Christ, noting that except one is born of water and the spirit; one cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Baptismal candidates lined up, arrayed in white robes, along the lighted stage and were introduced by the University Chaplain, Rev. Juwon Onasanya who baptized the student.
A release of fresh fire was made upon the candidates as they were surrounded by some other Minsters of God present.
Rev. Juwon however admonished the baptismal candidates after receiving the sacrament of baptism, to submit themselves totally to the Lord and declare total rejection of the devil and all that is evil as they are now new creatures in Christ Jesus.
The newly baptized students include, Esther Oyinkansola, Grace Ifeoluwa, Deborah Fiyinfoluwa, Dorcas Anjolaoluwa, Covenant Tobiloba, Elizabeth Oluwabusayo, Peculiar Udoh, Gloria Fiyinfoluwa, Samuel Tochukwu, Lydia Tofunmi, Sarah Ojuolape, Janet Olufisayomi, Samuel Temiloluwa, Elizabeth Adesewa, Mary Adeola, Blessing Ideraoluwa, Philip Temiloluwa, Tabitha Inioluwa, Victor Darasimi, Deborah Olaleye, and Akinpelu Oluwadamilola.
