Eagles fans, stock the bubbly ... 'cause a bunch of local Philadelphia pastors tell us with the signing of Tim Tebow ... the team gained a very powerful ally ... GOD!!
TMZ Sports spoke with 5 church officials who rep 7 churches in Philly... and the sentiment was universal ... Tebow's faith -- and relationship with God -- will have a HUGE impact on the Eagles.
Here are some of the highlights ...
-- Rev. Bill Golderer (Broad Street Ministries) -- "Our legacy [as Eagles fans] has been over 50 years of futility. Tebow's close to God, so we wouldn't have to sell our soul to the devil to win a Super Bowl."
-- Rev. Safford (Christ Church) -- "Having a faith-based person with the Eagles can only help the team."
-- Pastor Kent Jacobs (Epic Church) -- "We love Tim. He's awesome! Everyone needs people to encourage them and he's that type of guy. So he'll help the locker room."
One church official says his congregation is PUMPED too -- "I got a call last night. I thought a parish member was in the hospital, but it was just someone telling me we signed Tebow."
