The Baptismal Service was delightfully crowded with members and baptismal candidates. Several weeks prior to baptism, they are taught the lessons about the gospel of Jesus Christ .  It is called the gospel of Jesus Christ because the Atonement of Jesus Christ is central.  Those who desire baptism develop faith in Jesus Christ, repent, are then baptized by one with priesthood authority, receive the Holy Ghost and endure to the end.  Continued faithfulness is called "enduring to the end."  Seventeen were to enter the waters of baptism.

Listening intently to a question after baptism...
