WATCH: Spokane Pastor Plants "The Church At Planned Parenthood"

Pastor Ken Peters of Covenant Church in Spokane, WA, may have made one of the boldest moves in lifesaving, anti-abortion ministry to date: he planted a church right outside his local Planned Parenthood facility.
 
"We gotta put legs to our faith," Peters said, explaining his radical idea to CBN. "We've gotta find that balance between being mean and nasty and yelling, we've got to find the balance between that and doing nothing." 

"I felt like the Lord say to me right in the middle of a church service I want your next church campus to be the Planned Parenthood Campus," Peters recalled.  "A few months ago, we planted a church right there at Planned Parenthood."
 
Aptly named and reminiscent of Jesus' Revelation epistles, The Church at Planned Parenthood is made up of Peters and members of his Covenant Church congregation who host a full service complete with a worship band and prayer teams as close as legally possible to the steps of the abortion clinic.

"We're aware of all the rules and doing our best to stay within those, so the police are definitely there," Peters explained. "They're watching. But we tell them we're not there to cause trouble. We're there to worship God. We're there to pray. We're there to preach the gospel." 
 
Peters is one of many in a growing section of the pro-life movement who believes that the only way to end abortion is for God to change hearts, and, the only way by which God changes hearts is his Gospel.

That message is spreading, and with a great response. "Our last service, we got about 65,000 people viewing in live on my personal Facebook feed," he said. "We had over 300 people there outside in the freezing cold, cars driving by. It's been unbelievable." 

 
"We have a holocaust going on in our own country and this really brings it to light and we're confronting it with the Holy Spirit and with worship instead of in the flesh," Peters added.

"This really gets the light of Jesus right out in front of the community, right at one of the busiest intersections in town," he continues, confident in the drawing power of God's gospel for his people.
 
Ultimately, Peters contends, he hopes to see more churches making a stand in a balanced, Spirit-led, gospel-focused way against the advances of the enemy at abortion clinics: "The Bible says that hell will not prevail against the church, but I think if the church does not engage, then hell has free reign. So, what we're doing is taking church right to the gates of hell knowing that we will win."
