A fire destroyed their Roane County church on Thursday, but it didn't wipe away their faith. Instead, Peoples Baptist Church members say their faith in God is stronger than ever.

Their tears now come in the form of praise as they see what all remains.

They may be rejoicing in a different location, but there’s no change in the message.

A god they used to serve at one location, before a fire destroyed what used to be Peoples Baptist church.

A building that could barely hold the growing congregation.

A building now gone and a foundation covered in ash, leaving the members to use the foundation of their faith to move on.

The fire destroyed their church, but not their faith.

On Sunday, the church service was held at the Roane County Committee on Aging Building in Spencer. No word yet where service will be next Sunday.
