ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - More than 300 people were baptized Saturday as a part of the Jehovah's Witnesses international convention at the Dome at America's Center.

The "Love Never Fails" three-day event is part of the JW's global convention series spanning six continents, in over 200 countries, and presented in 400 languages.

It took two years of planning to get the dome prepared to host the convention.

It's the first big event for the Jehovah's Witnesses in St. Louis in more than 40 years.
