Indianapolis fire crews said that a fire burned through the floor and charred the altar. Investigators later determined the cause of the fire was electrical.
Despite the setback, church members were able to pull together and persevere to rebuild.
"If Jesus can rise from the dead, then certainly our congregation can rise from the ashes, because the Holy Spirit fills us with life," said Rev. Mary Alice Mulligan, senior minister at the church. "Congregations don't burn. Churches don't burn. Buildings burn. Congregations are strengthened and solidified and called forward through all of these difficulties."
