Baptism on the Spot! Wow!

Have you been baptized? 

If not, why not?

A guy that I have a ton of respect for, and who has been a personal blessing to my ministry–Cam Huxford– was used by God to do an awesome thing.

I read this today in Christian Standard’s enewsletter:

On Oct. 5, Savannah (GA) Christian Church‘s senior pastor Cam Huxford “delivered a message about seeking God’s intervention in our lives and publicly declaring His power as Lord and Savior through baptism–baptism on the spot, in the clothes people came to church in, in a pool into which he walked and waited for those who would come forward,” shares the church’s weekly newsletter. “It could have been an awkward moment. Instead, it was amazing as people streamed down the aisles while applause thundered.”
SCC baptized 196 people during services at its three campuses that day! “One newly married couple came to the Henderson campus’s 5 p.m. Saturday service. They felt the Spirit tugging at them but didn’t come forward. They left but quickly turned the car around, came back and were baptized in the second service, unable to go home until they did,” the church writes. “On Sunday morning, a woman declared that she gladly ruined her $400 dry-clean-only suit to publicly proclaim her faith.”

    Wow, I’m glad all those people have the holy spirit touch them so!!

    But, this is a testament to numbers, not souls.

    My wife and I went to church there for years. We were founding members of the East Campus. Donated money, time, effort, and our hearts to what we believed was a good thing. My mother in law even started to attend with us. Unfortunately, my mother in law died and we informed several members and staff at the church. Not a word, card, flower, phone call, nothing came our way by means of support, which was a very trying time for our family. We stopped going to church there, and about 8 months later, ran into a member of the staff from the Main Campus. He asked us how everything was going at East Campus. We told him what happened, and he said that he had no idea what happened or that we had stopped going to church there. Funny thing is, to date, we have not received a single phone call, letter, or anything asking us where we have been, or how we are. All that effort put into dragging the equipment to and from the gym, in the scorching summer heat, the money we donated, the time we put in on many Journey’s, and we were forgotten by our “family in Christ”. I hope God truly touches those that attend there, and one question to Cam, What are the names of the people that you baptised?
