Several thousands were baptized at the historic beach from Jesus Movement. According to CBN News, a historic site in California witnessed a huge sign of spiritual awakening in America. On the day of Pentecost, over 4,000 people went to Pirate’s Cove to get baptized and celebrate their eternal salvation as well as the 50th anniversary of the Jesus Movement.
Thousands Baptized at Historic Beach from Jesus Movement
Baptize SoCal was an event organized by Oceans Church and it was billed as “the largest water baptism ever.” It matched with a significant milestone of the Christian revival that brought hundreds of thousands of young people to Jesus in the 60s and 70s.
Over 8,000 attendees and 280 churches were present as 4,166 individuals ran to Pirates Cove’s shore to declare their new-found faith in Christ. According to attendees, the atmosphere at the event was electric with people praising God and celebrating their “Kingdom family.”
One of the attendees at the event dropped a comment on Instagram saying, “a moment I’ll never forget.” Another attendee said, “This is absolutely amazing praying for all in their new walk with Jesus… Welcome to the Kingdom family.”
Lindy Cofer, a renowned worship leader, couldn’t hold back her joy at the event. She said, “The Church is alive! What a beautiful sight in Southern California yesterday!!! On the 50th anniversary of the Jesus people movement.”
Videographer, Eddy Ferguson, wrote on his Instagram page, “It was such a blessing to witness so many people getting baptized for one but to be able to see happen the same place that the hippies did it 50 years ago for The Jesus People Movement was just surreal.”
The Baptism Event and “Jesus Revolution”
The movie “Jesus Revolution” showcases the Jesus People movement and the Pirate’s Cove baptisms similar to what was experienced at this event.
This film was a smash hit at the box office when it came out in theaters earlier this year, precisely in February. It also topped the DVD and Blu-ray sales charts recently.
Southern California Pastor Greg Laurie said he was not shocked by the film’s success when speaking to CBN News. According to Laurie, he had witnessed God’s wonders through the movie.
