October 10 has become a special day for 17 people and for their friends and relatives. They made a covenant with God through the water baptism in “Philadelphia” church in Izhevsk. By tradition the joyful event was accompanied by worship songs.  Each baptizand walked into the baptismal font, leaving old life behind to give the vow to the Lord to follow Him from now on. God has prepared wonderful destiny for everyone. He will never fail or leave us. He will be there in joy and sorrow. He will take care of us.

Quite changed people got out of the water. We can’t know what exactly happens during the sacrament of baptism but we can be sure that the Lord is really glad. It was gratifying to see that many of the baptized were very young.

After the ceremony pastors prayed for this people to be baptized by the Holy Spirit and all the present had an opportunity to congratulate the new members of the Church.
