This is the official website of the Baptism Site of Jesus Christ, where 2000 years ago Jesus came to be baptised by John:

"Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him (Matthew 3:13)".

It was at this very spot that history was made and where for centuries hearts yearning for Divine Grace found untold blessings.

After becoming lost the site was recently discovered, authenitified, and now home to hundreds of thousands of visitors annually from all different denominations and faiths who seek the blessings of a land graced by great prophets, saints, and the Messiah.

And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased." At once the Spirit sent him out into the desert... (Mark 1:4-5, 9-12)
