    Some Baptist churches are going back to the future -- and making a statement to their communities in the process -- by holding outdoor baptismal services resembling the ones Baptists held for hundreds of years before indoor baptisteries became standard.

    Our church has held baptisms in swimming pools and also in the Chesapeake Bay.
