    It erroneously stated that we have a partnership with a local Muslim mosque.

    That is false.

    It erroneously reported that we had agreed to not evangelize with Muslims.

    That is false.

    It erroneously reported that we believe Saddleback and Muslims worship the same God.

    That is false.
