Baptismal Service in Full Creek


Pastor William J. Seymour, aided by Glenn Cook, holds a baptismal service in Full Creek, California, near the Indiana Avenue Bridge. Two hundred people attend and 13 are baptized. Among those baptized was Bennett F. Lawrence, who would later write the first history of Pentecostalism, entitled, “The Apostolic Faith Restored” (St. Louis, Mo.: Gospel Publishing House, 1916). The crowd took the streetcar to Murphy Hall where they conducted a feet washing and Communion service.
