Some 4,500 people were baptized over the week-end at Pirates Cove in Newport, California. The scene was reminiscent of the Jesus People Revival were thousands were baptized at this same location during the late 60’s and early 1970’s. The event followed the recent Harvest Crusade in So. California (July 2-4).
Evangelist Greg Laurie called it an event of ‘Biblical proportions:
“On the day of Pentecost, after Peter preached, we read in the Bible that 3,000 people were baptized. At Pirates Cove, we are looking at a baptism of biblical proportions,” Laurie told the Washington Times.
