The Certainty of Easter

Listen to the Message
The authorities tried to dismiss the resurrection story as nothing more than a fabrication.
There are many compelling reasons to believe in the reality of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Jesus is alive.
He really wanted to believe; it was just too good to be true.
What happened next is that these disciples experienced a radical transformation.
A one-on-one real life encounter with the risen Christ.
They didn't achieve fame and fortune at all.
Why were these men who had once been completely paralyzed by fear suddenly willing to pay the ultimate price?
...God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11)
He will change you from the inside out.
It's a personal experience that each individual must have for themselves.
It begins with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
1. You get a brand new start, every day.
  • "Go, tell his disciples and Peter." (Mark 16:7)
  • Jesus was dead, but now He's alive.
  • ...His compassions never fail, they are new every morning. (Lamentations )
2. You can experience peace.
  • "Peace be with you."
  • The one who conquered death can certainly conquer the turmoil in your life.
  • Trust Him with your life, and let Him fill your heart with peace.
3. You will never be alone.
  • "And surely I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:20)
  • No matter what you face, He will be with you.
  • You need a personal encounter with the risen Christ.
  • Ask God to make real the presence of the risen Christ in your life every day.
