“Not long ago a historic church in Virginia took a stand for its faith and lost everything—its priceless property that George Washington had graced, its entire savings, even its communion silver. But the church did not fade. It had been pruned of material things. It was ready to grow and thrive as never before, planting new churches and proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“This church’s experience has echoed throughout the world. Somehow the story of its stand and its losses caught the imagination of people and the attention of the press near and far. Biblical faith faces persecution but promises eternal reward, as it always has. Times of cultural drift call for renewal and awakening. They call for powerful stories of God’s sovereign work. This is one of those stories.”
