Check out this controversial South African church that is currently trending due to its unorthodox baptizing practice where alcohol is used instead of water. According to multiple reports the members of the church are baptized with their favourite alcoholic drink instead of water. That’s not all, the congregants at the Gabola Church have also been given a go-ahead to drink alcohol during church services. 52 year old Bishop Tsietsi Makiti, is the founder of the church and is the brains behind the idea. Due to the beer baptization, Bishop Makiti’s church has witnessed its membership rocket to over 500 members in just under two months.
He says he was motivated by the scriptures narrating how Jesus changed water to wine.
He added;
People who drink and get baptized by beer are happy and peaceful. This means they are living in the shadow of God. The church accommodates people who are not welcome at other churches. Its name ‘Gabola’ is the Tswana word for drinking. There is only one branch at the moment but the Bishop is looking forward to expanding it further.
