A church in Hamburg, Germany recently conducted a mass baptism filled with Muslim converts who had become disillusioned with Islam and were looking for truth.

“The motive for the change of faith is the same for many: they are disappointed with Islam,” Pastor Albert Babajan, of the Alpha Omega Church in Hamburg told Mohabat News.

Shima, one Christian convert who was baptized, said: “I’ve been looking all my life for peace and happiness, but in Islam, I have not found it,” she said. “To be a Christian means happiness to me.”

Another convert, Somaz, said: “In Islam, we always lived in fear. Fear God, fear of sin, fear of punishment. However, Christ is a God of love.”

Pastor Babajan led the baptism ceremony in a city park.

There has been a remarkable move of God among refugees from the Middle East and many have converted to Christianity since their arrival in Germany.

Some critics have charged that refugees have converted with insincere motives, since Christian converts are

given protected status by immigration authorities in Germany because Christian converts would face persecution if they return to their home countries.

But Pastor Babajan carefully interviews each new believer before baptism, asking how Christ has changed their lives.

He can always discern a change in their thinking and their world view. “If someone told me that at night he can sleep again or an old enemy could forgive, then I know that in his heart he is a Christian.”

“Whoever does not believe will not be baptized,” he added.


  1. He who has the son has life. Jesus always add value to all those who have him as Saviour and Lord. Behold all things become new. I am so happy for the new converts. I urge them not to look back.

  2. Five fingers are not equal. there are bad and good peoples in all over the world and in every religion. So if we just say the Islam is wrong because of some dictators or bad people, then it’s wrong. I am a Muslim and i respect all religion. in this article i just think the writer just target religion Islam, Not the people who did those bad things.
    I hope you all understand me.
    Allah (God ) Help us all and give’s us strength to see the truth.

  3. Just like christ told that at the end of the world ,he will put all his flocks together. “Praise the Lord”

  4. Dear in Lords name,

I am from Kenya and anybody who may come across this my comment may pass to him. My e-mail address is: [email protected]

    Thanks in Christ
