After Jesus was crucified on Good Friday, Christians believe that God raised Jesus from the dead on the third day. We have good reasons to believe that Jesus was resurrected. It’s the best explanation for why the tomb was empty. But what does it all mean? What difference does it make for us today? In He is Risen, and Why It Matters, Pastor David shares why Easter Sunday is the turning point of human history.

Because He Lives

Easter Sunday 2017
Sermon Title: Because He Lives
Scripture Reading: 1 Corinthians 15:1-8, 12-14, 19-22, 58

On Easter Sunday we celebrate the risen Christ. Jesus died on the cross, and we believe that the Father vindicated his Son by physically raising Jesus from the dead. The apostle Paul said that our entire faith hinges upon the historicity of this event. So, what evidence do we have that Jesus was raised to life on the third day? And what difference does the resurrection make for us today living in the 21st century?

Listen as Pastor David shares about our living hope in a message called, Because He Lives.
