On a chilly day in April 2009, over 200 people were baptized in the murky little pond that sits quietly behind Southland Christian Church off of Harrodsburg Rd in Lexington. I felt privileged to sit in the grass on that sunny Kentucky afternoon, basking in the sun and witnessing this life changing event.
Southland is continuing with the popular pond baptisms this year on April 4, 2010. Here is the link for more information, http://www.southlandchristian.org/news/
"Jesus answered, 'Truly, truly, I say to you,
Unless a man is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."
"Therefore go and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit"
