The worship area of the church was significantly damaged, although an estimate on the cost is still not available.

No one was inside the church at the time, and no one was hurt. The initial investigation by local, state, and federal agencies determined the fire was not accidental.

Authorities say that shortly before the fire was noticed, a small,
dark-colored car was seen in the parking lot.
