(CNN) - Two weeks ago, Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church in Pike County, Kentucky, voted 9-6 to ban couples in interracial marriages from attending or participating in the church.
But on Sunday, the small church reversed its course.
Pastor Stacy Stepp told CNN affiliate WLEX on Sunday that the church voted unanimously to "accept all people regardless of race, creed, or color and to accept everyone into the fellowship of Christ."
"I tried everything in my power to try to resolve the matter before it got to where it did," Stepp told WLEX.
