Pentecostal Church Joins Catholics

After years of study and some agonizing disagreements, Pastor Alex Jones and the 64 remaining members of his Maranatha Christian Church in Detroit gave up their Pentecostal affiliation on April 14 to become lay members of St. Suzanne Catholic Church, as reported in the Seattle Times. The church had 200 members in 1998, before Jones began changing his orientation.

At that point Jones said he "discovered the word ‘tradition' and how important it was to the early Christians." He soon changed the style of worship to include a Eucharist, modeled after a traditional Catholic Mass.
