Holy Portal

Blessed are the wired, for they shall inherit the Web. Or so hopes Fellowship church of Grapevine, Tex. The Baptist church has rechristened itself FellowshipChurch.com and this month will launch a Web portal featuring sports scores, weather, and stock quotes. For those who consider shopping a religious experience, it'll sell books, sermon transcripts, CDs, and more. Just no stock picks from The Man Upstairs.

The 12,000-member church says the Web can reach nonbelievers. "If Christ were here in the flesh today, he would say, `Go online,"' Pastor Ed Young says. "Churches have been dinosaurs for too long."

FellowshipChurch.com isn't a Net newbie. It has used Webcasts to flash baptisms and Christmas and Easter services around the world. Its new incarnation might even be welcomed by downtrodden dot-coms. Prayer may be their only shot at salvation.By Lori Hawkins
