Church celebrates 35 consecutive weeks of baptisms

by Sophie Drew

A church in Lousiana is celebrating 35 consecutive weeks of baptisms. 

The streak has been running since October 2021, and has seen more than 125 people baptised. 

The church is intentional about seeing people change their lives through Christ, and aims to baptise around 100 people every year. 

Just seven months into 2022 and that goal could be mere weeks away from being fulfilled. 

Pastor Steve James told the Baptist Message: “People ask me all the time, ‘What’s the reason for all these salvation decisions and baptisms?’ and I tell them there is no special plan or magic formula.”

“People come to see us, we see them, we tell them about Jesus, they get saved. We give God the glory for all of this.”

Student and Evangelism Pastor David Doyle is thrilled by the number of people being baptised. 

He said: “Our church is fired up about the vision and what God is doing,” Doyle said. “It normally takes years to recover from things like the pandemic, hurricanes and floods. But we have experienced growth during the first year we’re back. All glory to God. With Jesus, the best days are always ahead of us. We continue to move forward as a church and look toward Jesus.”

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
