According to the Governing Body of the religious sect in Watchtower 2019, study 40, paragraph 14, only baptized Witnesses will be saved“
Serena Williams revealed her religious beliefs way back in 2017. During an interview given to Vogue, she said “Being a Jehovah’s Witness is important to me, but I’ve never really practiced it and have been wanting to get into it. Alexis didn’t grow up going to any church, but he’s really receptive and even takes the lead. He puts my needs first.“
