EASTER SUNDAY

 

HE IS RISEN!! HE IS RISEN INDEED!!!

What can we say but, HOLY, HOLY, HOLY IS THE LORD!!!

So what is the Resurrection all about? On Easter Sunday we will be talking about the benefits that are revealed through the resurrection. Paul, in 1 Corinthians 15 reveals his perspective on the resurrection and I would encourage to read that passage in preparation for Easter Sunday.

HE IS RISEN!! HE IS RISEN INDEED!!!

Deeper Life School of Theology “Theology of the Blood ” with Dr. David Alsobrook, God views all blood as sacred, but man’s blood is most sacred because man was made in His image. Jesus’ blood, because of who He is, holds the highest place in the heart of God. This course shows all that the blood of Jesus has accomplished.
