A fire at the Freedom Ministries Church in Daniels, West Virginia burnt the walls of the building but left the Bibles and crosses unharmed, ABC News reports.

"On March 3 around 12:58am our department was dispatched to assist Beaver VFD with a structure fire at the Freedom Ministries Church, located in Grandview WV," the Coal City Fire Department wrote on Facebook. "Though odds were against us, God was not."

"Picture this, a building so hot that at one point in time, firefighters had to back out," the post continued. "In your mind, everything should be burned, ashes. Not a single bible was burned and not a single cross was harmed!! Not a single firefighter was hurt!"

"Prayers for the pastor and the congregation today."

Freedom Ministries wrote on Facebook last Sunday it "will have to rebuild but we will be OK," and asked for prayers for church leaders Pastor Phil and Candice Farrington and the rest of the "church family."

The church wrote in another post: "We are overwhelmed with all the love, prayers, concerns, and offers of help!! God is working, we know. We cant (sic) thank you all enough. Please know we love you and are for ever grateful."

ABC did not receive responses for requests for comment from either the church or the fire department.
