Dallas Cowboys chaplain Jonathan Evans, son of Dr. Tony Evans and a former NFL fullback took to Social Media on Wednesday to share footage of three NFL players openly accepting Jesus Christ as savior and getting baptized. “It was an honor to baptize 3 Dallas Cowboys who identify themselves as Christ-followers first,” Evans wrote on his Facebook page sharing a video of the event along with the hashtags “Identity In Christ” and “Cowboy Nation.” The athletes getting baptized were Kavon Frazier, 23, Anthony Hitchens, 25, and Justin March-Lillard, 24.
Upon entering the pool, the team minister quoted 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore those who are in Christ are a new creation. The old has gone and the new has come,” Evans told the entire team as they watch the baptismal service. “Baptism is just an external expression about an internal reality,” Evans explained to those standing around the pool. “Going under the water means he died with Christ and coming back up means he’s resurrected to the newness of life.” FULL STORY
