Church Experiment #7: Passion and Fire Church

I was very nervous about attending a service at Passion and Fire Worship Center [their website no longer exists, so I’m assuming this church has closed its doors] because I have always struggled with Christian “ministry.” Praying in tongues, healing, falling to the ground, violent convulsions, bursting into tears or laughter—it has always seemed staged and goofy. Going in, I knew Passion and Fire valued this type of ministry, and I was curious to see it practiced up close and personal.

I had no idea just how “up close” I would get and just how “personal” it would become.
