  • He has risen so that you may have life

    Christ is risen. Christians throughout the world joined together Easter Sunday and every Sunday to worship a risen Lord.  Because of His death, burial and resurrection, we can have life and have it to the full (John 10:10).
    If Jesus had remained in the grave, there would have been no resurrection from the dead and Christians would have no hope. Our faith would be useless. But Christ was raised from the dead and we are able to sing, “He arose!  He arose!  Hallelujah Christ arose!”
