A Hillsborough County, FL congregation is suing its former church after it closed doors and is trying to sell the property to developers.

However, that church continues to worship together every Sunday within the Inglesia de Dios Pentacostal Church in Palm River, Hillsborough County.

This visiting congregation rents the sanctuary and worships.

Until 2 years ago, the parishioners worshiped at the Palm River Campus of Bell Shoals Baptist Church, which has many campuses around Hillsborough County.

Despite consistent attendance, the congregation claims they were told the church was dying and closed.

Then, last year, a restrictive covenant prohibiting the sale of the church was revised, despite the fact that it required unanimous congregational agreement.

According to the documents, members met to vote, but no one from the congregation attended.

They are now fighting to prevent the Bell Shoals from selling the property to Lennar, who plans to build 70 townhomes.

After their concerns went unheard at Hillsborough County Zoning, they decided that filing a lawsuit was the best way to keep Bell Shoals Baptist Church accountable.

While the legal matter is being resolved, the congregation will continue to meet every Sunday, even if the building is not theirs.
