Would you recognize this man if you put a black basketball jersey on him? Yes. That’s Bruce Bowen of the San Antonio Spurs. What’s he doing standing in a lake? Bruce was one of several men from Oak Hills Church who baptized around 300 people in the Guadalupe Lake this afternoon. No, that’s not a typographical error. 300 people.
The line was long, but the people were patient.
Families came to be baptized together, couples, brothers and sisters, individuals. They came in obedience to Jesus’ command to be baptized.
Each individual, couple, family, or group of siblings was prayed for by one of the elders after their baptism.
What a beautiful way for me to spend a gorgeous Sunday afternoon! God said His Word would not come back void. Today was magnificent evidence that God’s Word is still alive and active on planet Earth!
May you all have a blessed week in Christ! If you’re not in Him yet, read the Gospel of John to discover for yourself who Jesus is and what He offers you. Then receive the gift that will change you from the inside out. You will never be the same!
