"Even if you were saved 13 seconds ago . . . come and get baptized on Easter Sunday!"
Pastor Mark Driscoll, at the final Mars Hill Easter Service. According to a recent Tweet, they’re shooting for 200 baptisms today.
“We’ll have some pastors and leaders up front, they’ll ask you a few questions, and you can get baptized right now. . . . We’ve got extra clothes; you have no excuse.”
