The Baptism Fund began in July 2015 to provide funds to those institutions interested in having their children baptized in the Armenian Church. Baptism, an outward testimony of the inward change in a believer’s life, is the means by which a person makes a public profession of faith and discipleship. Being submerged in the water represents death to sin, and emerging from the water represents the cleansed, holy life that follows salvation. Thanks to SOAR, a mother’s vision in honor of her children has now become a reality!
