Akeem Davis-Gaither, linebacker for the Cincinnati Bengals, has declared that he is a Christ-follower through baptism. The 23-year-old shared that he was overjoyed to have “received the gift of new life.”
“I am so proud to have given my life to Christ. God has done wonderful things in my life, picked me up from my lows and humbled me at my highs,” Davis-Gaither wrote on Instagram. “Every step of my life, God has blessed me in so many ways. I’m blessed that I’m able to share his love and let my life be a testimony of his unwavering love for us all.”
He also quoted Galatians 2:20 in his post: “I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me.”
Davis-Gaither was baptized by Pastor Derwin Gray with Transformation Church in South Carolina. Gray is also a former NFL player who played for the Indianapolis Colts and Carolina Panthers.
“It was an honor to baptize you brother! I look forward to continuing this journey with you,” Gray commented.
