Brass bands and thundering preachers welcomed believers attending the annual mass baptism at the United House of Prayer for All People in Charlotte, NC. The Charlotte Pentecostal church was one of many United House of Prayer churches holding the group baptism in October 2009. The tradition of baptism by fire hose started nearly a century ago as a way for members to periodically wash away their sins and heal physical ailments. The Charlotte, North Carolina United House of Prayer is located at 537 Beatties Ford Road, Charlotte, NC.
