[IN Q=This is adventageous]

((REV. JERRY FALWELL/THOMAS ROAD BAPTIST: THIS IS ADVANTAGEOUS FOR THOMAS ROAD BAPTIST CHURCH BECAUSE WE CAN MOVE THERE AND BE IN WITH RENOVATIONS ONLY TO DO PROBABLY IN TWELVE MONTHS, THAT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FROM SCRATCH. WE ALSO CAN DO IT MUCH MORE CHEAPLY BECAUSE WE WERE ABLE TO BUY THE FACILITY FOR ELEVEN DOLLARS A SQUARE FOOT, IT WOULD COST US NINETY TO A HUNDRED PER SQUARE FOOT TO BUILD FROM SCRATCH.))

The Ericsson building has over 800- thousand square feet and comes with more than one- hundred acres that back up to Liberty University. Lynchburg Christian Academy will join the church when it moves. After renovations, the building is expected to have a Jeffersonian- Facade much like the current building. The church plans to keep its name after the move and will name the private drive to the new building Thomas Road.
