An early morning fire on Friday destroyed a gymnasium at a
Balch Springs church.
Authorities were called around 3:30 a.m. when flames started
to engulf the gym at the Greater Apostolic Tabernacle Church.
Dozens of firefighters from Balch Springs, Dallas and
Mesquite responded to the fire, but were unable to save the gym.
"I believe God is
in control. The Bible says he works all things to our good and I just trust
that he knows what's best," said church pastor Andrew Elms. "He knew it was
coming and so we just go with the flow and trust him and know what he that he
will take care of us."
The church does not
have insurance and the building is a total loss.
The cause of the
fire is under investigation.
