Stunning Image Shows Cross Still Standing After Fire Rips Through Texas Church

Christians in a small town in Texas are celebrating the survival of a holy cross which remains standing despite a fire ripping through the church where it was erected.

The fire destroyed the Balsora Baptist Church in Bridgeport, Texas, on Friday June 17.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation but it was severe enough to cause the roof of the church to collapse while firefighters were inside battling the flames.

In an announcement on Facebook, the Wise County volunteer fire company said: ‘A devastating loss to our community, but a sight to behold.

‘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.’

The fire company suggested that the fire was caused by extreme heat in the region, where temperatures soared to over 100F last week.

‘A huge thank you to mutual aid, once again.

‘Extreme temperatures are beyond taxing to resources and manpower in events like these.

‘Churches also pose an inherent danger related to the great span of the sanctuaries and great halls, which makes them very prone to collapse.’
