Pastor and Congregation Accept Christ
A few months ago, I won Pastor Michael Dansu from Vision Chapel to Christ. He came to our church, Fundamental Baptist Church International, the following Sunday evening and got baptized. Several weeks later he asked me to preach the last service of a three-day revival Vision Chapel was holding. I agreed to do so.
After being introduced to preach, I exposed the doctrinal errors of works salvation and losing your salvation. Continue reading

The past month has been an increasingly exciting time as we watch numerous of our church members, especially young converts, growing and maturing spiritually. Souls continue to be saved, and every Sunday new believers are being baptized; we had 10 baptized this past Sunday.
Three new believers wanted to be baptized, so their pastor made a big deal of it. He held a meeting on a housetop and invited community leaders, neighbors, and family members to come. He paid to rent a tent and a PA system and offered a meal for everyone who came.
We were the honored guest speakers who shared about the meaning of baptism and lifted up Christ; 17 were saved in the service, and 5 were baptized Continue reading
