A special highlight of this year’s Southwest Focus Retreat was the baptism this afternoon, by trine immersion, of Pastor Oscar Chavez of Northridge, CA. Chavez pastors the Iglesia Biblical De Fe, an independent Hispanic congregation, which he would like to bring into the FGBC as a Grace Brethren Church. In his comments prior to being baptized by Bellflower, CA pastor Tom Hocking, Chavez gave thanks for his warm welcome and support from other Grace Brethren pastors, and indicated his desire for him and his church to become a full part of the Fellowship.
