A congregation in South Carolina has vowed to rebuild after a tornado destroyed the church's sanctuary.
Six people were worshipping inside the Refuge Temple Church in St. Stephen when the storm hit.
Church member Craig Robinson, 50, said he began to pray when he heard the twister approach.
"I bent down on my knees and asked the Lord to have mercy," he told The (Charleston) Post and Courier.
Robinson's prayers appeared to have been answered. Although the roof collapsed, no one inside the building was seriously hurt.
Refuge Temple's pastor said services will be held at two nearby churches while reconstruction of their sanctuary gets underway.
