Alipur Baptist Church in Assam, India, built a baptism tank Oct. 8. The church used it the next day to baptize several people. Alipur Baptist Church was founded in 1945, and this baptism tank is the first the church has had. “Praise God!” says Pastor Nabin C. Singha.

He prays that many people will accept Christ as Savior through the ministry of Alipur Baptist Church, especially during Christmas and the New Year season, and be baptized.

Alipur Baptist Church is part of the Fellowship of Baptist Churches in Assam. That association is celebrating 60 years of ministry. When the association began, it had five churches and now has 53. About 500 people from northeast India gathered in Pailapool Oct. 2–4 to celebrate the anniversary.
