THE RESURRECTION IS KIND OF A BIG DEAL
Pastor Steve Lummer
And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile 1 Corinthians 15:17
Without the resurrection of Jesus, there is no CHRISTIANITY.
What is resurrection?
You are LIVING then you are DEAD then you are LIVING again.
WE HAVE HOPE AND A FUTURE BECAUSE OF THE RESURRECTION.
