Victory News - The Tomb Is Still Empty!

Wonderfully full house on Easter!

Dear Friends,

Good news...the tomb is still empty! So even if you’ve been the victim of a Craigslist scam or something worse…the victory that Jesus Christ pulled off on Easter when he rose from the dead is still the single most decisive event in history. Because your Savior lives…nothing now, not even the curse of sin, can take away or rob you of the inheritance you have in heaven! That’s what Pastor Bill is going to explain this Sunday as we explore this comforting passage that the apostle Peter first shared with suffering believers in the 1st century about “an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade-- kept in heaven for you” (1 Peter 1:4).

So please join us this Sunday at 9 or 10:45 as we continue our “Empty” series and unpack the implications of what the empty tomb practically means for our lives!

(And in case you missed it, watch and share my Easter message from Sunday where I expose the emptiness of honest atheism and showcase the awesome comfort we have as a result of the resurrection.)
