One California church is rejoicing over the record number of baptisms that took place on Sept. 12.

Calvary Chapel Church in Chino Hills held the outdoor baptism at Corona Del Mar State Beach in Newport Beach where nearly 1,000 people made a public declaration of their faith in Jesus Christ.

Church Director Gina Gleason told CBN News that "California may be experiencing a spiritual revival." She explained that the typical number of candidates for baptism is 300 but Saturday saw over three times that.

"It's remarkable and a significant number," she added.

The area where everyone assembled, also known as Pirate's Cove, reflected a scene of jubilation as adults, children and families encountered the love and goodness of God.
