Church organization

We have been preparing our church for organization for about 6 months now.  I have taught on our doctrines and also taught them the importance of a local church.

A few months ago, we started meeting with those who were interested in officially joining our church and becoming a charter member.  We questioned them on their salvation, baptism and if they were living pure lives.  We only had one lady get mad and leave the church over this.  She was shacking up, and I told her that she had to leave the man or get married if she wanted to be baptized and be a member of the church, but she did neither and got mad.  Many of her family are in the church, but they agree with our position.  Another couple decided to make their marriage legal.  They had the right attitude.  We ended up with 44 people as charter members.  We will probably add a few names in the next few weeks.  It was truly a great day.  We thank Dr. Dean Hamby, assistant director of Macedonia World Baptist Missions, for helping us.  He was a great blessing to us and our people.

I wanted to add a few pictures so here they are:
