Notes & Transcripts

The New Life Assembly of God church adopted a new vision statement in 2003. The church decided “To make the Janesville area Christ conscious.” Ten years later, the church is building a sixty foot cross on their property to give life to the vision. The cross weighs about 25,000 pounds, and will be lit by three lights. It is anchored by enough concrete to ensure it can withstand 90 mph winds. The church says so far, they have received relatively positive feedback, although they are ready for those who may not support it. Pastor Michael Jackson said he doesn’t expect the sight of the cross to make everyone a Christian, but said that really is not the point. Jackson said, “It has certainly sparked discussion. We are glad to be part of that discussion, whether people agree or disagree.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
