Happy Easter / Feliz Pascoa

We want to wish everyone a Happy Easter / Feliz Pascoa. Jesus' resurrection is an important truth in the Christian faith. Without the resurrection Jesus would be just another religious leader, just a teacher, just another human being. But by God's divine power Jesus rose again from the grave, and He now lives. The gift of eternal life in heaven is available to everyone because of Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection. The gift of abundant, full, meaningful life filled with joy and purpose is also available to those who put their faith and confidence in Jesus, because Jesus lives. Jesus IS the source of life - abundant life and eternal life.

 "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to 
the Father except through me."  - John 14:6

"He told them, this is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the 
dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will 
be preached in his name to all nations..."   - Luke 24:46-47

"If Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith... And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins... But Christ 
has indeed been raised from the dead...    - I Corinthians 15:14,17,20

"And Jesus Christ our Lord was shown to be the Son of God when God powerfully raised him from the dead by means of the Holy Spirit.   - Romans 1:4
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ ! In his great mercy 
he has given us new birth into a living hope through the 
resurrection of Jesus from the dead..."  - I Peter 1:3
