The Church in the News

The purpose of this page is to give you a picture of the church under the hood. The stories here often have tragic endings; God is exposing the sins of His church and lives are being destroyed daily. This should spark a sense of urgency in every church to put everyone on their knees in prayer, every weekend, crying out to God for mercy and healing. The church is supposed to be a house of prayer. We need to equip His people in the areas they are struggling in.
