In his books the late author Chuck Colson wrote about worshipping with inmates on Easter Sunday. He enjoyed serving "the least of these." After Colson launched Prison Fellowship, a significant number of churches started prison ministries.
A video from Transformation Church in Indian Land, South Carolina, reminds of how God can change the hearts of prison inmates and that salvation is available to anyone that will place their faith in Jesus Christ and repent of their sins.
Derwin L. Gray says, "As we move into baptism it is a declaration that sin, death and evil has been defeated. Baptism is a declaration that we identify with Jesus."
Jesus acknowledges the role of prison ministry:
I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, jyou did not do it to me.’ - Matthew 25:43-45
