Happy Easter!

On this Easter day, we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead - just as he said. The resurrection proves that Jesus is who he says he is. And the resurrection proves that he has accomplished what he came to do. Through his death and resurrection, we have the sure and certain hope that we also will one day rise and live forever with him. Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
