Megachurch Experiences ‘Genuine Move of God’ with 136 Spontaneous Baptisms

A Tennessee megachurch had to put one of its services on hold Sunday because so many people were spontaneously coming forward to get baptized.

“What happened yesterday was another genuine move of God. We baptized 136 on Sunday,” Long Hollow Senior Pastor Robbie Gallaty shared.

The Hendersonville, TN church celebrated people who made a public declaration that they’re living a new life in Jesus Christ.

This isn’t the first time Long Hollow has experienced a surge in baptisms. In 2021, in less than four months, it performed over 1,000 baptisms.

The baptisms that took place at Long Hollow are a small part of what God is doing across the country.

“We’re seeing God do something miraculous. This isn’t business as usual,” Gallaty said during service. “We had one person scheduled to be baptized, and at this point, we’ve seen 88 people spontaneously come forward for baptism today. It’s unbelievable. Only God.”

One man drove more than 300 miles to attend Sunday’s service and spontaneously decided to take part in the baptism and Gallaty said more people are signed up to be baptized next Sunday.

“We saw more people baptized Sunday than any other time before (even during the revival). Eight people drove in after watching online, six people left the service, went home and came back because the Holy Spirit convicted them to be obedient in baptism,” Gallaty wrote on Facebook.

He continued, “One guy said, ‘I have been worshipping online in Michigan for a year. God told me on Saturday to drive down to Hendersonville for worship. Today is my first time attending in person. I’ve put off baptism for years, and here I am in the tank to make it right.’ Only God can do something like that.”

As CBN News has reported, large-scale baptisms are taking place all over the country.

Last Sunday, Life.Church celebrated the more than 2,000 baptisms that took place over the church’s 40-plus campuses.

Earlier this summer, more than 280 churches, and 8,000 attendees watched as 4,166 people flocked to the shore of Pirates Cove in California to declare their new life in Christ on Pentecost Sunday.
