An Ames church is showing off a new LGBTQ pride banner.

The previous banner at Ames United Church of Christ was ripped down and burned earlier this month.

Pictures in a Facebook post from the church feature a rainbow banner with the words "God is Love."

It's true: God IS love. #pride #gaypride #prideflag #hatecrime
