Disney Star Joshua Bassett Is Baptized At Bethel Church

Disney star Joshua Bassett of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series was baptized at Bethel Church in Redding, California on Sunday after recently declaring his faith in Jesus Christ.

Bassett shared a clip of himself on social media explaining why he chose to get baptized.

“Hi, my name is Joshua,” he said in the video while standing onstage at Bethel Church. “And long story short, I grew up Christian, and I ran the other way as far as I could go in pursuit of ‘truth,’ and that only ended in addiction, depression, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, etc. And no other teacher gave me anywhere near the peace that Jesus Christ did. And I’m here to publicly declare Him as my Lord and Savior.”

As Christian Headlines previously reported, Bassett posted a tweet saying, “Jesus Christ is the only way. His death and resurrection are historically documented. Turn away [from] hate, seek forgiveness and come home to Him.”

Bassett is known for his role as Ricky in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series on Disney+. For more information, visit
