BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER AND OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT!
The mission of the Church is to include all mankind in the Body of Christ, uniting it with God Himself. To have the Gospel of Jesus Christ spread to all nations!
Thousands of baptisms have taken place, with the grace of God, at the Holy Diocese of Arusha and Central Tanzania. Dozens of people of all ages receive the sacrament of Baptism following their catechism.
The work of catechism, however, is not limited only to Iringa, but,with zeal and perseverance,now extends to the cities of Arusha, Dodoma (capital of Tanzania) and throughout Central Tanzania, with the number of the people who are being catechized increasing day by day. The Mission Center under construction shall be the reference point of the religious and charitable work in Arusha; a vision that is gradually being realized…
The Missionary Shelter (Ierapostoliki Stegi) also plays a leading role in the performance of baptisms, as many members send money and, as a thanks, our newly-converted brothers and sisters are given names of beloved Saints or loved ones of the donors. It is very important to support, both materially and spiritually, those of our brethren who make a brand-new start in their lives, within the Orthodox Church of Chirst!
