Baptism service held at the Creek County jail

94 of the 212 inmates inside the Creek County jail were baptized Tuesday night.

Chaplains have been ministering to the jail inmates and brought in a new horse trough to use for the baptisms.

The last time the Creek County jail offered this was in 2001.

They say the inmates choose the ceremony as a concrete way to separate their past from their future.

Assistant chaplain Aaron McNulty: "A lot of these inmates decided they want to live a new life, start over. They realize the lifestyle they've been living isn't working for them and they want to change, do something different."
