Jail In Okla. Hosts Mass Inmate Baptism

Officials at the Creek County, Okla., jail hosted a baptismal service for 100 inmates in August. Volunteer chaplain David Toliver organized the event as part of the Creek County Jail Ministry.

“I can’t change their lives, I can only tell them about Jesus and how he can change their lives,” Toliver told a local television station, KOTV. “We know that if they take this and march forward with it that they can be a different person.”
