(Scroll down for video) Pastor Allen Parker wants all of his congregants to love and accept themselves for who they are.
Parker decided to lead his congregation the way God brought us all into the world, in the nude.
Members of the small congregation in Virginia, worship in any way they feel comfortable, but most members choose to be in some state of undress.
Pastor Parker said that his church members are there to find inner peace, and that begins with self acceptance.
“There is no feeling that you have to be better than others, physically,” Parker said.
“We are human beings, we all have scars, we have what we have. It is about learning to love and accept that,” he added.
