Fergus Falls church to host nationally known theatrical ministry event

Life Church of Fergus Falls is hosting "Heaven's Gates - Hell's Flames" on Sunday, Sept. 18 through Tuesday, Sept. 20, with free performances each evening at 7 p.m. The Reality Outreach Ministries performance will be presented by Life Church volunteers.

"Heaven's Gates - Hell's Flames" is a high-impact presentation choreographed together with elaborate sound, lighting, and dynamic multi-screen video support. The drama begins with the portrayal of Jesus being crucified, and resurrected. This is followed by a series of vignettes of different people, in sometimes life-or-death situations, examining their spiritual and eternal values, and the consequences of their choices. The audience is challenged to consider where they will spend their own eternity, based on the reality of life after death and beyond the grave, according to the Bible.

This is the second year that Life Church has hosted "Heaven's Gates - Hell's Flames".

"Last year after the performances, we were overwhelmed with positive responses from hundreds of people....again this year, we hope that many will be challenged by the presentation, and moved by the main message, which is, 'the one true way to Heaven and eternal life is through Christ's love and forgiveness,'" said Life Church Creative Director Nick Preston.

Based in Twinsburg, Ohio, Reality Outreach Ministries has been producing ministry outreach events around the world for over 30 years.

Free child-care will be provided during each performance, and Life Church will offer the opportunity for follow-up and communication with attendees who request more information and encouragement.

Life Church is located at 901 Hwy 116 in Fergus Falls.
