From the Pastor's Desk

Happy Easter! We are so excited that you decided to join us today!

Two thousand years ago, a bloody execution site in Jerusalem became the heart of everything we believe and hold dear. When Paul said, “We preach Christ crucified” (1 Cor. 1:23), he indicated that we could take all the archives of Christian wisdom and reduce it to one essential: the cross of Christ. The cross is at the center of our faith because it’s at the center of God’s heart. Paul said in 1 Cor. 2:2 “For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.”

Jesus labored mightily on the cross to pay the price for the forgiveness of our sins, for the healing of our bodies, for health in our souls, and for our eternal companionship. When He cried, “It is finished,” He meant that the price was paid in full. Calvary’s work was complete, and Jesus descended to hell in holiness.

However, if death had been strong enough to hold Him and Jesus had not risen from the dead, nothing purchased on the cross would be ours. Although paid for, all those benefits would have been lost.

The good news is that it didn’t end with the crucifixion. The Bible tells us that on the third day He rose from the grave triumphant as King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Praise God! That’s what we celebrate today as we celebrate the Easter season.

Today our Youth will be ministering in drama and dance, our worship will be focused on Easter and the Resurrection, and Pastor Mark will be preaching a message title “Hello, My Name is Resurrection.” Our prayer today is that you will be blessed in every part of our service! Let’s celebrate together!

-Pastors Tim and Katrina
