The focus of the weekly worship service in most Protestant churches is the sermon – the preaching of the Word of God, the Bible.
The layout of most Protestant church sanctuaries bears this out; the pulpit, not the altar, sits front and center.
John Kerns had grown tired of the misconception among local churches that worshippers could not be baptized more than once.
In 1995, he took it upon himself to start a church service that encouraged performing baptisms as a way for followers to rededicate themselves to the Lord at any time in their lives.
In mid-July, local children plunged beneath the seas in Holley Assembly of God’s three-day Vacation Bible School, “Anchored, Deepening Faith in God.”
A team of volunteers transformed the church facilities into an underwater wonderland.
