JONESBORO, AR -- A promise of free gas had vehicles backed up almost a half mile Saturday morning in Jonesboro.

Greater Dimensions World Outreach Ministries was giving away $10 gas cards at the Citgo Station.

The giveaway officially started at 11 a.m., but people began showing up four hours early.

And within 30 minutes, all of the gas cards were gone.

Pastor C.A. Turner said the goal was to bring a lot of people together -- and that it did.

"We believe that somebody's life can be changed. That's what it's all about. It's not about just giving away free gas. This is a vehicle we're using just to open the door for salvation," Pastor Turner said.

He said the church gave away close to $700 in gas.
