Ex-Buffalo Bills Quarterback Gets Baptized and Proudly Wears ‘God is Real’ Shirt

Jim Kelly, the ex-quarterback of the Buffalo Bills, embraced Christianity through a recent baptism ceremony. During the event, he donned a shirt that boldly declared “God is Real.”

This meaningful moment was shared on his wife’s Instagram, where he responded with a heartfelt “Yes, I do” when asked about his love for Jesus. Kelly, renowned for his 11-season tenure with the Buffalo Bills from 1986 to 1996, openly expressed his faith.

“I have witnessed God at work in this man’s life for over 30 years…and I can tell you that God isn’t just REAL, He is faithful, trustworthy, kind, loving, compassionate, powerful, gracious, GOOD, merciful, forgiving…and so so much MORE,” wrote Jill Kelly. “He is immeasurably MORE than we can imagine! He is EVERYTHING!”

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:19-20,” she posted.

Through his own Instagram post, Jim Kelly opened up about discovering his faith in God, even in the face of the tragic loss of his son Hunter to Krabbe disease.

“I’m not a man of many words and I don’t speak ‘Christianese,’” he wrote. “All I know is that God changed my life. After Hunter went to heaven I was so lost and angry at God. But God loved me anyway and he never gave up on me,” he wrote.

“I’m far from perfect but God helped me humble myself and seek him for help. Becoming a Christian is the best decision I’ve made in my life. I wish I would’ve come to him sooner. But his timing is perfect. And finally I was baptized,” he wrote. “Thank you Hunter. It’s because of you that I know Jesus and I will see you again.”
