Huge gatherings of people stepped into the light of salvation as a move of God swept parts of the northeastern U.S. last weekend.

Worship leader Sean Feucht and Dr. Charles Karuku with International Outreach Church brought outdoor revival meetings to New Jersey, New York and Massachusetts.

Despite the rainy weather, worshippers gathered in Lincoln Park, New Jersey, on Friday, where the faith leaders shared a message of peace and hope.

"We feel like this rain delay is only making us even more hungry and more passionate," Feucht declared. "This is the stuff worship dreams are made of."

One attendee carried a sign that said "Worship is Warfare" —a testament to the belief that America is facing an escalating spiritual battle these days.

The praise event continued in New York City on Saturday, where baptisms took place in the public fountains of the iconic Washington Square Park.

"This place is filled with people about to get baptized in the fountains of Washington Square Park," Feucht said. "Some of them just got saved ... some are rededicating."

In a video shared on Facebook, Dr. Karuku described the occasion as a "move of God" after 29 people were baptized Saturday night in New York City, including a family of five.

"We had people getting born again. We kept on baptizing people," Karuku added. "We baptized an entire family of five—it was awesome. They all gave their life to Christ, and they came to be baptized."

Just days earlier, Dr. Karuku was in Kenosha, Wisconsin, leading the "Riots to Revival" movement where baptisms and worship filled the streets after the city was recently rocked by violence and protests.

"A revival is when God begins to tug on the hearts of people and call them back to repentance," Karuku explained in the video. "When God begins to be the first love of His people, that is the spark of love in the hearts. It is the revival of the hearts."
