A Pivotal Bible Saint - Cornelius

Cornelius the centurion was a God-fearing man. He was a Gentile, but admired the Jewish faith and felt a great devotion to God, spending much time in prayer. After a mystical vision, this centurion was visited by Peter who was amazed at Cornelius's faith. Peter was divinely inspired to baptize the Gentile - which opened the door to many more Gentiles being received into the Faith.
