California Church Buys Arena

Central Bible Church of Inglewood, California, has purchased a 17,500-seat arena. The church plans to hold worship services in the arena on Sundays and save the rest of the week for conventions, basketball games, ice shows, and concerts-and especially for Christian conferences and revival services, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"Jesus said, Do business until I return,' and that's our plan," Bishop Kenneth C. Ulmer, who heads the 10,000-member church, told the Times. The facility is the first multipurpose arena owned by African Americans, and will be among the largest places of worship in the country.
