PHOTO – Cross Left Standing When Blaze Destroys Texas Church, Members Look Ahead: 'He Still Answers Prayers'


A fire devastated a church in Texas on Friday, but there was one thing the blaze failed to destroy.

The fire at Balsora Baptist Church in Bridgeport consumed the building, according to the Wise County Emergency Services Department No. 2, and when the flames died down, one symbol was left standing tall, Fox News reported Monday.

The department said, “The fire took the structure, but not the cross. A symbol that the building was just that, a building. The Church is the congregation, and where 2 or more gather, there He shall be also.”

Photos posted Saturday showed the cross standing among piles of blackened debris, while additional images showed the flames reaching up from underneath the church’s roof:
