A Texas church will be the site of over 300 baptisms this Easter.

Christian Today reports that Keion Henderson, the pastor of The Lighthouse Church in Humble, Texas, will baptize over 300 people who have given their lives to Christ on Easter Sunday.

The new converts come from a variety of backgrounds, but are united in their salvation and desire to be baptized into Christ’s family.

Pastor Henderson expressed his hopes that the profession of faith through the baptisms will encourage others in the community to come to witness Christ’s power.

"Come and witness this great move of God in Humble, Texas," he said. "We are humbled to serve Humble, Texas for such a time as this."

"We are liberating men and women from the clutches of sin,” he added. “This is a new beginning. The gift of forgiveness and eternal life is available to all who would receive it."

The Lighthouse Church was founded in 2009 and has experienced exponential growth since then. It currently has 4,000 members.
