Pastor: Fire won't stop congregation

THE BRONX - A Bronx pastor is vowing to rebuild his church after it was gutted under suspicious circumstances.

Pastor Raymond Talavera says hate symbols were found inside Glory of Christ Church on Ellis Avenue after flames were extinguished in the December fire. Congregants later banded together and raised money for the church to be rebuilt.

Talavera says there are no leads pinpointing who was responsible for the blaze.
