Oceans Church organized Baptize SoCal – an event advertised as “the biggest water baptism in history”. The huge event coincided with a major anniversary of the Christian awakening that saw hundreds of thousands of young people come to Christ in the 60s and 70s.
More than 280 churches and 8,000 attendees watched as 4,166 people fled to the shore of Pirates Cove to declare their new life in Christ.
Attendees report the atmosphere was electric as people praised God and celebrated their “Kingdom family.”
“What an amazing and historic day,” said musician and pastor at West Coast Life Church, Ray Gene Wilson. “Thousands baptized at Pirates Cove, God is moving in California!”
