Chesapeake Conference churches added 545 new members in 2022 through baptism or profession of faith.
Alfred Williams was baptized on July 23 after attending “Serpentine Prophecy.”
Members of the Forest Grove (Dover, Del.) church recently celebrated the baptism of a 93-year-old man.
Alfred Williams, 93, initially became interested in learning about Seventh-day Adventists after contacting a church member to offer condolences following a relative’s death. When the member invited him to attend church, he agreed to go.
Williams decided to attend the Voice of Prophecy “Serpentine Prophecy” satellite event that was being hosted in the Forest Grove/Dover First district. After attending the meetings, he contacted Javier Scharon, pastor of the Forest Gove and Dover First churches, and explained that he was 93 years old and it was “about time he got things right with God.”
Williams began taking Bible studies and was baptized at the Forest Grove church on July 23.
