Bassett, who is best known for his role in the Disney+ series “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” had been open about his spiritual journey in recent interviews and social media posts. He had spoken about his struggles with anxiety and depression, and how his faith had helped him through those difficult times.

On Sunday, Bassett was baptized in front of a small at Bethel, a popular church in Redding, California known for its charismatic worship style and focus on spiritual revival. The church posted a photo of the baptism on its official Twitter account, along with a message congratulating Bassett on his decision to follow Christ. “Today, we had the honor of baptizing Joshua Bassett in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The young Disney star had also taken to his social media pages where he shared a video of his confession of his faith in Christ.

“Hi, my name is Joshua,” he said as the video showed him standing on the stage at the 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,” Bassett added.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
