This is so sad. Even churches aren't safe from bank's greed. I'm not Christian, and I'm not big on religion. But to put an armed guard at a church to keep the congregation out is saddening.

I don't know to much about the church and it's finances, but I do know that they ignored my requests to stop the homeless from sleeping and urinating on my nearby property. It's a shame that any church is forcibly shut down, but it begs the question if there was something illegal about their finances. I'm sure a thorough investigation will clear up any questions.

I have known this family for years and this church since before the doors opened under the leadership of Pastor Allan Turner who was previously a member of St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church in San Jose, CA. I am heart broken, to say the least. Not only for the church members, but for the community at large. This church made an impact! It fed the hungry, took the ministry into the prisons, sought the lost and was a wonderful place to come together and WORSHIP. I don't believe this is over. There is much to be done and the truth of it all will be known.
