Three hundred and fifty-four people came to Christ across the 19 campuses of NewSpring Church in South Carolina last Sunday, and it wasn't due to a revival or even a regular worship service.
During an interview with The Christian Post on Tuesday, NewSpring Teaching Pastor Clayton King revealed that people came to Christ during a question-and-answer session where people asked: "Will I go to hell if I commit suicide?" or "Do you believe in 'once saved always saved?'"
NewSpring recently introduced a Q&A Christmas series called "Ask," where congregants anonymously submit questions just like these, via text or through a call screener, about issues that are important to them. Questions are answered during the session. more >>
