‘In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And when He came up out of the water, immediately He saw the Heavens opened and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove, and a voice came from Heaven; Thou art my beloved Son; with thee I am well pleased.’ (Mark 1:11)
The divine spirituality and overwhelming serenity experienced at the Jordan River is unparalleled anywhere else on earth. Being at the Baptism Site of our Lord Jesus provides us with a sense of peace, as if this special site is a ‘haven’ of the Holy Spirit where God’s presence can be experienced and the pages of the Bible come alive.
The profound and beautiful power of the Holy Water was bestowed on the Jordan River at the time of Jesus’ baptism, by the Holy Spirit who descended on Jesus Christ at the Jordan River in the form of a dove and blessed the water, changing its natural properties. Untold spiritual wealth is concentrated in a tiny drop of this blessed Holy Water, the only remaining substance that Jesus touched which still remains today, providing divine spiritual healing for the mind, body and soul.
“I grew up in a church family and accepted Jesus into my life at a church camp at a young age. Time passed and I was never baptized. I want this Baptism to be a sign of my faith and my dedication to the Lord.”
“Before I went into Jesus’s hands I made some bad choices. Now that I am Jesus’ forever friend, he will help me make better choices. I want to invite other people also. I want to represent God in all I do.”
“I love Jesus because he guides me through my life. I love Jesus because he died on the cross for me. I want to get baptized because I want to have a new relationship with Jesus.”
