Bikers transform troubled bar into a house of God

CHESAPEAKE, Va. — A group of bikers in Virginia took a bar with a troubled past and transformed it into a house of God.

The building formerly known as Blakely's Night Club was plagued by crime and complaints. But it is now known as the Freedom Biker Church.

One member, Jeremy Scott, said that everyone is invited to come as they are.

"If you've got tattoos, if you want to wear short sleeves, tee-shirts, if you're life is a mess, come without thinking you've got to clean it all up," said Scott. "We'll meet you where you are and love with the love of God."

The pastors who founded the church opened their first biker church in Virginia Beach. Both are avid bikers.
