My Apology: Reality Often Makes the Bizarre Appear Possible

Elevation Church, but No Water SlideMy apology to those who were, like me, duped into the “Water Slide” narrative regarding the “Elevation Church” out of Charlotte, NC.  I have followed the Elevation Church Ministries from a distance with its multi-campus ministries and sacrilegious style of worship.  I researched its extraordinary practice of what one author described as “McDonald-style” baptisms services and fell for the water slide narrative. For that, I apologize to my readers; however, the trivializing of the Christian faith and the ordinance of baptism by this Southern Baptist Church is a reality.

In other words, the “Christianity” practiced by this church is entertainment based enough that even the bizarre appears to be within the realm of possibility.
