Famous Actor and TV Host Gets Baptized in Jordan River—The Video Will Leave You Speechless

Last week, actor and talk show host Mario Lopez recently visited the Holy Land in Israel — a lovely and spiritual place where Jesus' presence is still felt.

 

 

Lopez walked where Jesus walked. He even was baptized in the Jordan River where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. Not many people get to say they stepped where Jesus stepped, nor be baptized where Jesus was baptized.

 

 

As Lopez stood near the Sea of Galilee, he said, "This is where Jesus walked on water, and the River Jordan runs into the sea, and that's where, of course, Jesus got baptized, which I'm gonna be doing!"

 

Just a few days later, the "Extra" host is in a beautiful white gown preparing for the big, life-changing moment. Unfortunately, his wife and kids were at home, but he made sure to call and video chat with them every day.

 

 

"We are at the Jordan River where John the Baptist baptized Jesus Christ. I’m about to get baptized!" Lopez said with excitement.

 

Lopez walked into the Jordan River and was greeted by two Catholic priests. There they held his hands and began asking three important questions:

 

"Do you believe in Jesus Christ?"

"Yes, I do."

"Do you believe that He is the Son of God?"

"Yes, I do."

"Do you intend to serve Him all your life?"

"Yes, I do."

In 2015, Lopez told a Fox News affiliate that he has been trying "to build a more spiritual muscle."

 

"It’s nice to have something that is consistent in our life — family and faith is that for me," Lopez said.

 

Throughout his tour, Lopez stops to talk about where Jesus walked to be crucified. Thorns upon his head, our Savior was about to be brutally beaten and hung on a cross.

The devoted Catholic continues to update his fans as he walks through the Holy Land. He even stops at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
