In Their Own Words

April 14, 1736

Baptism by Wine

Benjamin Ingham, who had come to Georgia on the same ship - along with John Wesley and James Oglethorpe - wrote in his journal on this day of baptizing a child in a unique fashion:

”..I baptiz’d a Child by wine Immersion, being the first I ever did that good old way.”
