My three adult children have now all professed their faith, love, service and devotion to Jesus Christ; Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Savior of the world 🙌🏼. ‘Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.’ Matthew 28:19-20pt.”

Natasha Bure Was Baptized at California Shepherd of the Hills Church
According to the tag in her post, Natasha Bure was baptized at the California Shepherd of the Hills Church by Pastor Dudley Rutherford.
According to the church’s website, the church has multiple campuses in Los Angeles, along with online services. The website notes that it has been called “the most racially diverse church in L.A.” and “it has always been our pastor’s heart that the church would reflect Revelation 7:9, which says that in Heaven, there will be ‘a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages…’”
The website notes that this is a nondenominational church that believes “immersion in water of a professed believer is the Bible baptism (Acts 8:36-39) and such baptism is symbolic of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.”
Pastor Dudley Rutherford was the pastor at Hillcrest Christian Church in Granada Hills, the website shares, and in the 1990s his church merged with Shepherd of the Hills.
