Albany- An Albany church brought the Christmas story to life Wednesday night.

The members of Central Baptist Church put on this live nativity scene every year. They tell the story of Jesus' birth through music and drama.

"Its the true story of Christmas," said Ed Spurlock, the church's pastor. "It kind of takes away all the glitz and glitter of the shopping mall and those sorts of things and puts it in perspective for the family where they can see and understand that the real meaning of Christmas is the birth of Christ and the gift God gave to man."

At least two hundred people usually come to see the live nativity over four nights. This is the 27th year Central Baptist has put on the drama.
