Picture this scene: It’s 3 in the morning, and a man called William lies awake in Barcelona, Spain, unable to sleep. He’s a loving family man, but he’s also a notorious thug, caught up in organised crime and his double life is weighing him down with guilt.
Opening a beer, William begins to search for answers. He flicks on his computer, Googles “church” and finds a church service being broadcast live from the USA.
He listens to the worship, joins the chat room, and starts an online conversation about faith that will change his life forever.
This is a true story. William is now a Christian and a radically changed man—you can hear the rest of his story online.
The internet church he encountered was LifeChurch.tv. Based in the state of Oklahoma in America, it’s pioneering the way in church technology using satellite, Facebook, iphones, even virtual reality to spread the message of Jesus.
