Altar Call: Revival yields 17 professions

On Monday, November 4, I shared in an Altar Call Report how even before our “official” revival began, the Lord had already saved three people in our preparation for revival. I then commented that we believed these three were just the tip of the iceberg. Indeed, that’s exactly what they were.

During our week of revival, consisting of seven services, we saw the Lord save 14 people and call two other Christians to a renewed walk with Jesus. Including those that were saved leading up to revival, altogether we have seen 17 saved, and we believe there will be more to come in the weeks following our revival.

We baptized one on Sunday, November 3. On Thursday night, November 7, during our revival, we baptized two more of them and plan to baptize three more Sunday, November 10. I can’t wait until all 17 publicly profess their faith in Christ through baptism. Praise the Lord for His grace.

Great word! Tennessee needs the Lord!

Amen brother! 17 is great.

The last revival, as it was so billed for three nights anyway, that was close to my area (and NOT my church) yielded none (and rightly so, as the Lord wasn’t in it at all).

“and we believe there will be more to come in the weeks following our revival.”

Indeed. A lot of times, this is exactly how it goes. I share in your belief.

I know this is called the “Alter Call” report, but Ben, if you are still checking up on this post, I’d like to know more about the revival. I.e. theme and content of sermons, how the believers responded, etc. I guess it is those old Puritan teachings still kicking around in my head, but I still first think of “revival” in the sense they meant by the word “reform” (and not in the sense of theology) with regards to the church folk, and am curious to know how the they responded and were impacted by the revival.
