DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - Calvary Baptist Church in Dothan held a candlelight service in honor of Christmas.

The sermon was done in a two part fold -- one part to remind people of the love of Jesus -- and the other to remind people to spread his love through their actions.

At the end of the service, the pastor lit the first candle as a symbol of the light of Jesus and shortly thereafter every candle was lit, bringing the once dark room to light.

"So what those candles are trying to remind people.. Jesus has lit our world, he's changed your life hes given you the light of life as he says.. but he's also given you the oppportunity to make the same impact in somebody elses life. So you're the light of the world for somebody.. You've got a mission to fill somewhere to be that light for someody. So that's why we do it.. that's primary." -- Pastor Paul Thompson
