EGG HARBOR CITY, N.J. — The Champions House is a local church in Egg Harbor City that hosted an event at Lincoln Park called The Water, an event encouraging the people in the community to get baptized.
The Champions House is evangelizing in the city in hopes of doing something for the community they serve and inspiring people to establish or revitalize their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Pastor Chasen Bynum is leading this event and expects healing to take place for the people.
“People have experienced healing today, ankles have been healed,” said Bynum.
The Champions House wants to make sure that everyone that decided to get baptized made Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior, and Geraldine Harrell and her family were no exception. They were baptized and Geraldine says she felt something being lifted from her.
“I feel refreshed, I feel new,” said Geraldine.
Fresh Start, Soaring Diamonds, and Praise Tabernacle were a few of the churches that joined Champions House to help with the baptism proceedings. Once a person was done being baptized, they received a certificate commemorating the event and a free t-shirt. The baptisms were from 12 noon to 2 p.m. and another round started 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Fresh Start provided music for the people to fellowship and worship together and even Pastor Chasen grabbed the microphone to pray for all in attendance.
The Water Baptism was definitely What’s Good in South Jersey because it served as an opportunity for The Champions House to engage in their community.
In Egg Harbor City, if there is a person who has nowhere to go and is lacking encouragement, The Champions House is willing to serve as an encouraging place where people can feel not only encouraged when they enter but loved as well.
