A new online survey on theology, released by LifeWay, shows that while two-thirds of Americans with evangelical beliefs say heaven is a place where all people will ultimately be reunited with their loved ones, a slightly lesser number of Americans in general believe so.
While 64 percent of evangelicals say everyone will go to heaven, the percentage decreases to 60 percent for Americans in general who believe so, according to the survey, released by LifeWay Research and sponsored by Orlando-based Ligonier Ministries.
The survey notes that by definition, all those with evangelical beliefs affirm that only people who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Savior receive God's free gift of eternal salvation. And it adds that even more than half of Americans, or 54 percent, also say only those who trust in Jesus Christ alone receive eternal salvation. more >>
A Missouri church belonging to the Evangelical Free Church of America has changed its name, as some people thought the congregation was "free from evangelicals."
First Evangelical Free Church in Springfield has changed its name to The Springs Church of Springfield, the church announced, saying it commemorated the name change by a post-service event Sunday with free food, refreshments, games and inflatables for the community.
"We have known for some time that our name was confusing to many people," Pastor Jerry Carlin said in a statement. "So we chose a name that finds its meaning from many Bible passages including John 4:7-14." more >>

Iranian-American Pastor Saeed Abedini has announced that he's starting a new ministry looking to bring Muslim people to Jesus Christ, adding that he was told to do this directly by Christ 16 years ago.
"As you all know I was in prison for more than 3/5 years because Jesus met me 16 years ago and told me: 'I am coming back soon Go to preach my Gospel' and until today I didn't disobey Him and I will never disobey Him," Abedini wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday.
The pastor spent three and a half years in an Iranian prison for his Christian faith, and became the subject of major campaigns by persecution watchdog groups who called for his release. Abedini was finally granted his freedom back in January when he and three other hostages were released after President Obama gave the Iranian regime $400 million. more >>
