‘Amazing Miracles’ Taking Place as Multitudes of Inmates Getting Saved and Baptized by Talia Wise/CBN News for Charisma News
A national prison ministry has seen more than 450 (four-hundred fifty) inmates baptized after giving their lives to Christ this year.
God Behind Bars says “Jesus is moving in POWER!” after the number of inmates accepting salvation has more than quadrupled since 2021.
“In comparison, last year, only 90 were baptized,” the organization wrote on Facebook. “The gospel is spreading like we have never seen in prisons. Jesus is moving in POWER! Many prisons were shut down last year but this verse has been our promise… ‘You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives,’ (Gen. 50:20)”
Since 2009, God Behind Bars has worked to restore the lives of inmates, by building their faith, during incarceration and after their release.
“We create satellite campuses in prisons and our whole mission is to introduce inmates to Jesus,” Isaac Holt, Director of Innovation for God Behind Bars, told CBN News.
“There are 3.1 million inmates every day across the nation and that’s a huge group of people. We believe we can reach almost all of them,” he shared.
As CBN News has reported, God Behind Bars has created the first Christian app available for prisoners that streams sermons, worship music, and God’s Word.
“The Pando app streams … right now to 550,000 inmates,” Holt explained.
The group also partners with churches around the country, and one Tennessee church reported that 51 inmates dedicated their lives to Jesus in just the past week.
Lisa Cole, a campus pastor with Faith Promise in the east Tennessee area, works closely with God Behind Bars in Morgan County Correctional Complex, Bledsoe County Correctional Complex, and Bledsoe County Women’s Unit.
