DALLAS, TX—After an hour-long service commemorating Independence Day at First Baptist Church in Dallas, a beaming Pastor Robert Jeffress reported that “dozens and dozens” in attendance accepted the United States of America as their lord and savior.
The service’s patriotic songs, political message, and readings from the Founding Fathers all came together to powerfully convict many of their need to place all of their trust in the modern-day nation.
“When the massive flag unfurled behind the choir singing ‘Make America Great Again,’ I couldn’t deny my need any longer,” one emotional man told reporters after the service. “I surrendered my life then and there to the United States of America. May this great country change my sinful heart and make me into a new person.”
“I even wrote the date in the front of my Bible so I’d never forget it,” he added.
All of the new converts reportedly went forward after an impassioned altar call delivered by Jeffress and received a miniature American flag and red commemorative “Make America Great Again” hat, before being asked to recite the nation’s Pledge of Allegiance to seal the deal.
