The night before Sean Feucht, founder of "Let Us Worship" and "Hold the Line," was scheduled to lead a praise and worship event ushering in the New Year, far-left vandals struck at the church.
Early on Saturday, Feucht posted video and photos of the church after Antifa members defaced the church with anti-Christian graffiti and caused minor damage to the building.
"Last night, bigots spread hate and violence at a church where we are holding a New Year's Eve event in San Diego," Feucht wrote on his social media. "The police are investigating it as a hate crime. The enemy making the age old mistake. Persecuting the Church won't stop the gospel, it'll spark a wildfire."
Due to the violent nature of the vandalism, police have been dispatched to the event which is continuing in the face of threats and harassment.
Feucht said in an interview with churchleaders.com that the attack was "a fear tactic, it's intimidation, and you know, we don't get discouraged when fear comes, we actually get emboldened and this is a chance for the church of California to take a stand to rise up in unity and to say, 'We're not going to let persecution, bigotry, hatred, vandalism, stop us from worshiping. The church isn't a building. We're the bride of Christ and in 2023 we're rising up like never before."
In response to the vandalism, Feucht shared Scripture with his followers online and announced the show will always go on for the glory of God.
"Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."— Sean Feucht (@seanfeucht) January 1, 2023
