If you're looking for a holey, holy home to live in this little Iowa gem could be for you. That's because it's a church with a bit of a hole in the roof. Let's explain. What was once Redemption Missionary Baptist Church is now an empty building waiting for someone to redeem it and bring it back to life. It's located at 1510 2nd St SW in Cedar Rapids and is listed for only $45,000 on Zillow.

The 106-year-old church was built back in 1915 and truly has stood the test of time. During the derecho on August 10, 2020, the roof was blown off. Luckily, the rest of the building remains perfectly intact. The Zillow listing details that the "bottom half of the structure is solid" and that it has "strong bones". The building has two bathrooms, a kitchen (yes, it works!), an office, and a storage room. It also has some charm too with tall 11-foot high ceilings that give you that open feeling, and beautiful stained glass windows. It's being sold as-is, but the damaged top half of the structure can be repaired.

What's also nice about this piece of property is that you can fix it up to live in yourself, rent it out, rebuild it into a multifamily dwelling, or even tear it completely down and start fresh with a new build. See photos of this charming old church below:
