"Judgement House is one of the most effective ways for us to share the gospel with our community and the surrounding area," said DeAnne Owens, director of "Judgement House" at Ridgeland Baptist Church. "Our goal is to see people come to find a personal relationship with Jesus Christ."
The original "Judgement House" was in 1983 and has since grown to include presentations in 35 states and 10 foreign countries. More than 6 million people have attended and about 600,000 have made first-time professions of faith.
