Last June 21-22, 2013, thirty-six candidates of our spiritual family joined Victory Weekend- a two day retreat designed to bring freedom to disciples. Of that number, 26 candidates were baptized in the water on June 22 at Sarabia Manor.
The event was highlighted by two days of sessions on being free from bondage, being added to the church, reaching out to the lost, and other topics. Speakers imparted wisdom and exhorted to the participants.
Also part of the event was a night full of worship, and a time for baptism in the Holy Spirit. As the candidates were Spirit-lead, many of the participants experienced the manifestations of the experience. Many of them also spoke in tongues.
Another highlight was the baptism of water held in Sarabia Manor, where the candidates publicly and externally professed their faith in the burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
