Baptism – Pirate’s Cove 2023

by Greg Laurie on Aug 23, 2023

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — July 8, 2023 Pastor Greg Laurie, facilitated over 4,500 baptisms at Pirates Cove in Newport Beach. The same body of water was used for baptisms during the Jesus Movement in the 1960s and 70’s.

People gathered from across the country with lines wrapped around the seawall in what Harvest is calling the largest baptism in American history.

“On the day of Pentecost, after Peter preached, we read in the Bible that 3,000 people were baptized,” said Laurie. “At Pirates Cove, we are looking at a baptism of biblical proportions,”
