Bong Go lauds enactment of January National Baptist Day bill

In recognition of the significant contributions of the Filipino Baptists in the country, Sen. Bong Go welcomed the enactment of the bill declaring every second Thursday of January as National Baptist Day, proclaiming it as a special working holiday. 

“Lahat po tayo pantay-pantay sa mata ng iisang Diyos. Our Baptist brothers and sisters have always been seeking to express God’s love to our Filipino people and they have also brought so much fulfillment and purpose in their amicability,” expressed Go.

Go is one of the authors of the measure that became Republic Act No. 11897. It lapsed into law last July 23.

The law provides that the State shall recognize all Baptists for their evangelical missions which significantly contribute to nation-building. 

Go then reassured that with the enactment of the said law, the government will also strengthen its commitment to upholding human welfare and integrity and will further intensify its support to the Baptist of the Philippines and all of its pursuits. 

Go then stressed that the more than 120 years of service of Baptists in the Philippines deserve due recognition.
