Christ’s Resurrection: Knowing Heaven and Reviving Dreams

The Easter season is a celebration of second chances, renewal, and surprising fulfillment. This is not only true for those who witnessed the first Easter, but for us today as well!

Why Christ Suffered and Died

The death of Christ is not only the demonstration of God’s love (John 3:16), but also the supreme expression of Christ’s own love for all who receive Him as their personal savior. It baffles us that God who is all powerful and knows everything allowed His only Son to suffer and die. Why did God not make another way to […]
