Dreams involving churches, regardless of what they look like or what happens to them, deal with faith. Therefore, when you see a church on fire in a dream, it indicates a significant transformation of your faith and spirituality, or on the contrary, giving up your faith.
Fire in dreams symbolizes both transformation and your deep passions, as well as a destructive force. So in order to better understand your dream, it is first important to think about your relationship with faith.
If you are religious or believe in something (not necessarily religious), dreaming about a church on fire can be a sign of spiritual transformation. It can mean that you are undergoing a period of spiritual growth and transformation.
Churches in dreams often represent a spiritual journey, and the fire can symbolize the changes you are going through. It may also suggest that you are looking for spiritual guidance and are willing to make changes in your life to achieve your goals.
Loss of Trust
Old dream dictionaries often describe a dream about a church on fire as a sign that you no longer want to limit yourself by religion or label yourself as religious. You want to give up your faith and burn everything that no longer belongs to your presence.
A burning church is also a sign that you are losing faith in both religion and humanity as a whole. It can be caused by a negative experience, or it can also be your personal decision to no longer identify yourself as a follower of a religion.
A church on fire in your dream may represent the burning away of old beliefs and ideas that no longer serve you – allowing for something new to take their place. Maybe you’ve decided to stop believing what other people believe. Maybe you want to go your own way and develop yourself as a person without identifying yourself as a follower of any religion.
Since fire also symbolizes purification and transformation, and the church is a symbol of faith, you are likely undergoing or will undergo a spiritual awakening. The fire is a reminder to take control of your life and spirituality and move forward unencumbered by the past.
For me personally, fire in dreams is a reminder to make good and wise choices because, just like a fire that helps keep us warm or cook soup, it can also endanger or even kill us. So, we should make good decisions regarding spirituality and not succumb to spiritual gurus or fraudsters.
