Requested several pastors for permission to post their church's web site on our web links spot here. Today I recieved two of those back in the affirmative. Thanks to Brother Killian, Pastor of The Lord's Baptist Church in Tacoma Washington, and Brother Johnson, Pastor of the Sovereign Grace Missionary Baptist Church in Texarkana, Texas for this kindness. I do hope you will visit these sites. You will be blessed. Brother Kelley Hinson
We invite you, our friends from around the world, to join us as we lift up our voices in praise to God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit for this wonderful news from Missionary Curtis Pugh, that a new church has been organized in the country of Romania. I will include a copy of his letter to us. Dear All, A fuller report will be given in our next monthly prayer letter, but we wanted you to know that this past Lord's Day a new Baptist Church was organized here in Romania. Our Church in Denham Springs voted to dismiss the members in order that they be formed into a scriptural Church. Acting as their missionary, it was my great pleasure to be able to do this. After the new Church was organized, the members elected Brother Raul Enyedi to be their pastor and chose the name "Adunarea Baptistilor Harul Suveran" which translates "The Sovereign Grace Baptist Meeting or Gathering." They wanted to stay away from the term "biserica" which is used by others to designate their "churches." They decided to ordain Bro. Raul and asked me to assist them in this matter which was done. It was a joyous and emotional time for all concerned. It was a great joy to me to see them functioning together in a business meeting as they had several other things to decide, such as how often to observe the Lord's Supper. There are at present 4 adults (2 ladies and 2 men) who have asked for baptism and who shall soon be baptized on the authority of the new Church. So, praise the Lord with us and pray for this new Church! Curtis P.S. They have asked me to continue to preach to them from time to time and of course I will help them in any way I can.
"CHRISTIAN BAPTISM is not the celebration of a religious rite by modes indifferent; but a specific act to be administered by a specific body, to persons professing specific qualifications, for the profession of specific truths. When one of these properties is wanting, the transaction is "null and void," since, unless the ordinances are observed as Christ commanded, they are not kept, but perverted, and bring upon the parties not the commendation, but condemnation, of the Master."
If you have any intrest in news of this work in Romania please e-mail us and we will gladly put you in touch with Brother Pugh.
