BRIGHTON, New York — A pastor in New York has taken preaching about fire and brimstone to new heights!

"Here we go!" An announcer called out as the preacher rode his motorcycle to perform a spectacular stunt.

Forget Evel Knievel! This holy roller, John "Mercury" Morgan, has carved out a new nickname — "Holy" Knievel!

He's a real daredevil, alright.

Well, he's no devil — but he is a real pastor who rides like a bat out of Hell while riding his bike, which he calls 'Faith on Fire.'

The saintly preacher pulled off this stunt using a ramp, jumping over a helicopter on the ground and then crashing through a burning wall of fire!

Morgan said he does these stunts to show off his faith and to help spread the gospel.

Since the pastor made a safe landing, it looks like his prayers were answered.
