Confirmation Service, Engagement Blessing, Easter Sunday
Confirmation is an act of blessing in which young New Apostolic Christians take upon themselves the obligations which their parents undertook on their baptism and sealing. From then on, these Christians will commit themselves to faithfulness to God and publicity professes the New Apostolic Faith. But before the day of their Confirmation, the confirmands took the last phase of Church Instruction which serves primarily to ensure that they know the essential principles of our doctrine, in particular the Ten Articles of Faith, to increase the value of their faith and also to align their lives with the goal of faith which is the return of Christ. As we celebrate Easter Sunday last April 1, 2018, fifteen young New Apostolic Christians were confirmed by District Apostle Hebeisen, the confirmands answer the question as to whether they intend to remain faithful to God with their “yes”. Afterward they recite their confirmation vow together. After the prayer of District Apostle Hebeisen, the young New Apotolic Christians receive the confirmation blessing. This blessing strengthens them in their endeavour to keep their vow to profess Jesus Christ in word and deed. After District Apostle gave his blessing to the confirmands, a couple from Makati youth Brother Rap and Sister Jo-en received a blessing as well, an Engagement Blessing. To this great couple, Congratulations on taking this exciting step together. Wishing this couple make a relationship wonderful and pleasant bond.
After the divine service, the Makati youth shared all the Eggs they prepared to all the members as the celebration of the Easter Sunday. Everyone was happy and enjoy that special day.
