The Remnant Fellowship declined to be interviewed for Part One of THE WAY DOWN : GOD, GREED, AND THE CULT OF GWEN SHAMBLIN. Shortly before the premiere of the series, the Fellowship provided a written statement. To read the full statement is below.

‌“Remnant Fellowship categorically denies the absurd, defamatory statements and accusations made in this documentary. Our Christian beliefs, like hundreds of other churches in the United States, are Bible-based, and our church is a place based on love, care, mercy, and kindness shown to people from all walks of life.

Our teachings have helped thousands to overcome strongholds, vices, and addictions. The church has also encouraged members to find their own personal relationship with God and has proven to restore numerous broken relationships. Children are happy and healthy, being raised with the most love, care, support, and protection imaginable.

Thousands have said that their lives have benefited from the mere-Christianity message of Remnant Fellowship and the Weigh Down Ministries, but we know that there is no one message that can ever please everyone.

As any other church, Remnant Fellowship operates under all U.S. guidelines and laws.

Our Church’s services and assemblies are webcast each week and viewed by people all around the world at no cost. Anyone seeking to learn more are always welcome to visit anytime online or in person.
