Actor and TV host Mario Lopez is currently on a tour of Israel, visiting various holy sites and reconnecting with his Christian faith. The father of two recently stopped at the Sea of Galilee to explore the very area where Jesus walked on water, the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth, and the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus is thought to have delivered his famed "Sermon on the Mount."

But perhaps the most significant moment of his trip so far came when the Extra host decided to get baptized at the very location where Christ himself was submerged by John the Baptist, as described in Matthew 3:13-17.

"We are at the Jordan River where John the Baptist baptized Jesus Christ. I'm about to get baptized," Lopez announced before he took the plunge. "It's a beautiful day.
