The church that Republican presidential front-runner Donald TrumpDonald TrumpFormer US envoy: No good military options against North Korea Trump official and TV surrogate leaving White House: reports Biden: I regret not being president MORE says he attends in Manhattan says the candidate is not an “active member.”
During a Thursday campaign stop in Greenville, S.C., Trump told reporters, "I am Presbyterian Protestant. I go to Marble Collegiate Church,” which is located on Fifth Avenue, south of Trump Tower.
Trump said he began going to church at the First Presbyterian Church in the Jamaica neighborhood in Queens, N.Y., when he was younger. CNN confirmed that he attended Sunday school and had his confirmation at that church.
In an interview with Sarah Palin on Friday night, Trump defended his decision not to name a favorite Bible verse when pressed by an interviewer.
“That’s a very personal thing. I don’t like giving that out to people that you hardly know,” Trump told Palin on “On Point” late Friday.
The presidential candidate has frequently cited the Bible as his favorite book.
