Baptisms in River Ness

 A group of Christian believers made a public confession of their faith and, in obedience to the word of God, were baptised in the River Ness.

ICF Baptisms1On Sunday 16 August 2009 six Christian believers who are all part of Inverness Christian Fellowship were baptised as part of their public testimony in the River Ness which flows through the city of Inverness.

Earlier that day they had each given a spoken testimony at a church service held in Millburn Academy. A very encourging assembly of Christians from ICF and other local churches in the area gather to encourage and support those being baptised. Following a short time of praise on the river bank at Fisher's Bothy the baptisms were performed by pastor Ian Ross of ICF.

A number of passers-by interrupted their Sunday walks to stop and watch the ceremony taking place. One journalist from the local press was also in attendance to record the event.

The video includes a short interview with pastor Ian Ross following the event.

On the same day the Culloden-based King's Fellowship were conducting baptism on the north shore of Loch Ness.

The testimony which James gave to his church is carried in full in the 'My Story' section of Christians Together.

Just over a year ago, Eilidh Clyne - supported by family and friends - made similar public profession of her faith. And you can read an article about this event and watch a short video of the service.
