‘A beautiful thing’: 4,500 people baptized at California beach days after SoCal Harvest

Greg Laurie believes it could be one of the largest mass baptisms ever.

"They were so moved by the baptism scenes in the film and wanted to take the same step in life. It was life imitating art, and that art was based on my real life story and the story of many others as well."

Laurie also attributed the turnout to the SoCal Harvest at the Honda Center the weekend before, where over 3,000 people made a profession of faith to follow Christ.
