The Church Shaved, the Cross Survives – Vision Christian Media

The survival of a cross that still stands despite the fire that destroyed the church around it is a sign from God according to a Texas pastor.

Sonny Smith says it shows the Balsora Baptist community that God will help them through this grief.

“That cross is where we used to get little pieces of paper with a string and everyone would write down all their family members and the different ones they wanted to pray for and we would hang them on that cross,” he said. he explains.

“It’s an absolute miracle that this cross went through the fire when nothing else did.”

“For me, it was a sign from God saying ‘Don’t worry, I’m still here and I’m going to get you going.’

‘The Christian Post’ reports that the cause of the fire is still unknown.

A construction crew was taking a lunch break after renovating the church when it was engulfed in flames.

A spokesperson for the Wise County Department of Emergency Services said the fire was “a devastating loss to our community” but called the still standing cross “a sight to behold”.

“A symbol that the building was just that, a building. The church is the congregation and where two or more gather, there also it will be.

According to county officials, the church was over 120 years old.

He was insured, and with thousands of dollars in donations, he will help pay for a new building.
