45,000 People Baptized at Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church

Warren called the moment “historic”, before Alberto Flores became the 45,000th person to be baptised by the church.

CHR Comment: Saddleback Church is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention, which has reported the issue of repeated Baptisms in their denomination. In other words, some Baptists who have fallen away from the church get baptized a second or third time when they recommit as Christians. Although Christians in the U. S. should celebrate the many Baptisms at Saddleback Church, we should also view this large number in perspective with popular practice among Baptists.
