"Saved by the Bell" Star Mario Lopez Renews His Baptismal Promises

“Saved by the Bell” Star Mario Lopez Renews His Baptismal Promises

Former Saved by the Bell star and host of Extra Mario Lopez renewed his baptismal promises recently in the Jordan River where Jesus was baptized by Saint John the Baptist.

Lopez was flanked by two Catholic priests who asked him:

“Do you believe in Jesus Christ? Do you believe that He is the Son of God? Do you intend to serve Him all your life?”

And to each question, Lopez responded, “Yes, I do.”

After walking out of the river, he told the camera man, “That was awesome, that was so cool and I was so fortunate to meet these very nice people from Romania. They sang the song for me and everything. That was moving. That was cool.”

Lopez has been vocal about his Catholic faith in the past and has been sharing pictures and videos of his trip to the Holy Land through his Twitter account.

Mario Lopez was raised in a “big, loud, Mexican Catholic family” and is married to actress Courtney Mazza with whom he has two children, Gia and Dominic. “It’s important for me that my kids have a faith-based education, so obviously they’re in Catholic school…I’m always proud to promote that I am Catholic.”
