A Word from Our Pastor
He is Risen!! He is Risen Indeed!
Good…(no, strike that)…GREAT MORNING!
We welcome you to a church that believes in the resurrection of Jesus! We believe with all of our hearts that He is alive! Why?
…Because the tomb was empty!
…Because no body was found!
…Because 500 people saw Him with their own eyes after His resurrection!
…Because the disciples went from running for their lives to being willing to die for this truth!
…Because the disciple, Thomas, went from being a doubter to a believer!
…Because James, the half-brother of Jesus, went from being a skeptic to a leader in the Church!
…Because Saul of Tarsus went from killing Christians to being a Christian!
…Because the Christian church and religion rose up from this very truth!
…Because the day of worship among NT Jews went from being on a Saturday to being on a Sunday (Resurrection Day!)
…Because of our personal testimonies of how the Living Lord has changed our lives!
You ask us how we know He lives? HE LIVES WITHIN OUR HEARTS!!!
We indeed serve a Risen Savior,
