Christ’s resurrection is the cornerstone of Christianity. Everything hinges on this one grand historical event. If it happened, then Jesus really is the true Messiah; if not, then he is a fake, and his followers are fools. If God has raised him from the dead, then that means death is not the end!

Christ’s resurrection defeats evil. We don’t have to wait for Christ to return to find liberation from evil. In his crucifixion and resurrection, Christ has conquered, and you can enter into this freedom today!

“When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, ‘Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and the grave.’”
