Harbour Church in Falmouth hold sea baptism at Gyllyngvase

Comments (1)

THE sea may have been a little rough, but it did not deter James Rowden from getting baptised in Falmouth.

He became about the eighth person to be baptised by Harbour Church since it was revived nearly three years ago.

The church was established by Roger Wyatt, who trained as an Elim minister in 2003.

He said: "We baptise people when they decide that they want to be a Christian and follow Christ.

 "There were loads of people there to watch, and James' mum made a special trip from Dubai to see her son baptised.

 "The water was freezing and quite a rough day for Gyllyngvase, but it was great fun ."

After the baptism, everyone gathered on the beach and read Psalm 16.

 Members meet at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall every Sunday at 10.45am, with additional meetings during the week.

 More information about the church can be found at www.theharbourchurch.co.uk

    "After the baptism, everyone gathered on the beach and read Psalm 16." Psalm 16 King James Version (KJV) 16 Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust. 2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee; 3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight. 4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips. 5 The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. 6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. 7 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. 8 I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. 10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
