After nine tornadoes swept through northern Texas last week, one Dallas church found hope amid the disarray.

Though the roof and part of its building was damaged at Northway Church, the lead pastor shared photos of its sanctuary’s wooden cross which remained standing.

“As I sat today in the chaos of what used to be our worship center, I took comfort in the symbolic reminder that the cross of Jesus still stands,” Shea Sumlin wrote on social media. “The church is not a building, but a people who stand on the confession that Jesus is the Christ, and against which, not even the gates of hell (nor an EF3 Tornado!) will prevail!

According to an interview with Fox News, the cross was made by a church member when the campus launched 10 years ago.

“Our building may be broken, but our church is as whole & alive as it has ever been. To God be the glory!” wrote Sumlin.

The church remains active despite the temporary setback. It has already conducted a prayer service and a community-wide meal which fed thousands. Northway has promised the church will be rebuilt.

In the meantime, a nearby church has offered their building so Northway members can continue to worship as a group.

“For me and for our church, it’s a symbolic source of encouragement,” Sumlin stated to Fox News. “Christ and His cross is what still stands for us.”
