Video of the Church
The Church of the Baptism of Jesus Christ will establish a Roman Catholic presence at this sacred site, where Jesus was baptized more than 2000 years ago.
The church complex and visitor center will be built for visitors to pray, be baptized and experience this spiritual place. The design, layout and interiors reflect the immense significance of the church’s setting, surrounded by biblical landscapes and with views across the Holy Land. Baptism pools will allow visitors to be baptized in the River Jordan, where Jesus himself was baptized; they lie amid layers of Christian history, where ancient churches and chapels indicate that many Christians before have also visited this special place as pilgrims.
The following video gives you a glimpse into The Church of the Baptism of Jesus Christ, that with your help and God’s grace is being built next to the historic baptism site of Jesus.
