Kings Crossing Prison Ministries began this unique program in 1991. We were introduced to a need for baptistries in jails and prisons by American Rehabilitation Ministries (ARM) in Joplin, Missouri. Kings Crossing has supplied many prisons with the permanent (communion - tabletop ) baptistries through ARM. Then, we became aware of a need for light - weight portable baptistries and designed, developed, and produced our own. Our portable units are used in jails and prisons but also by local churches in camps, retreats, campaigns, backyards, and in mission fields all over the world.

Today, we continue to assist jails and prisons in securing the permanent “Table - Top” models (through our partnership with ARM).  Depending on accessories desired (steps, casters, heat - pump attachment) and shipping, the baptistry may cost $1,200 or more.  If you would like to receive an order form, send your request to:

Baptistries Around the World
P. O. Box 270720
Corpus Christi, Texas 78427 - 0720

We will gladly guide you through the process, including the finances. Once the paperwork is completed, delivery time is normally within 6 - 8 weeks.

If you need a portable baptistry, the process is easier and less expensive. All the pieces are packed in a shipping box weighing less than 35 pounds. The box contains PVC pipe, a liner, water - hose, drain attachment, and a convenient carrying case. We have $400 worth of materials involved and shipping (anywhere in the continental USA) is under $100. Delivery is usually within 3 - 4 working days. If this best meets your need, contact us at 361-855-3372 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

With God’s help and generous financial support from churches, individuals, and businesses, we have placed 373 permanent and/or portable baptistries in 36 states (including 101 in 38 foreign countries ) since 1991. Some are able to totally reimburse us while others need assistance. We have good friends who are eager to help supply whatever is needed to help taught men and women put Christ on in baptism. More are encouraged to include Baptistries Around the World in budgets. Our conservative estimate is that 10,000 prisoners are baptized annually in this country alone.  Increased support means thousands more will be given the opportunity to be baptized into Christ!
