Fire destroys Balch Springs church gymnasium

Posted: Updated:

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.
