Random bible verse

You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

Youth Opportunities Hamilton

Our youth are our most precious trust. As they grow and develop our youth opportunities taken, influence their own personalities and they find the path they choose in their life. It is a privilege to watch them make good choices that will influence them right here and now; and the valuable influence they may have on their peers; and the good choices they make that will give them a life full of fulfilment here, and for eternity!

One of our youth Byirungiro; after studying The Bible for some time has made the connection with Jesus; to realise that Jesus made us unique, and with the freedom to choose how we live our lives, and yet Jesus gave His own life for each and every one of us, regardless of our choices!

Young Byirungiro

Such great love that Jesus has for us!

This realization has led Byrungiro to want to live his life the way that Jesus teaches us in The Bible; to accept the offer of Jesus to walk with us, to lead and guide us in all things. To live our lives for others, to tell other people that there is a better life available that is real, led Byirungiro to ask to be baptised.

Byirungiro’s baptism, Sabbath, 1st August 2015.

Baptism is one of the most important events in the life of every Christian.

It’s a public declaration of one’s faith in Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and a demonstration of one’s willingness to follow Jesus’ example in the waters of baptism.

Baptism by full immersion is a powerful symbol of transformation or “death” of old self and the beginning of new life that is focused on serving God and the humanity.

The Sabbath, 1st August 2015, will be remembered by all those who attended Hamilton Church, and especially by the 13 year old Byirungiro, his mother Nirakamanze and his two brothers Roje and Jimmy.
