Easter is significant for any church. It is the most distinctly Christ-centered holiday. It focuses on the life and death of Christ which purchased the church as His bride. It is a celebration of Jesus’ triumph over sin and death – the decisive victory in the great battle between good and evil. “D-Day has occurred; V-Day is assured,” wrote Oscar Cullman.
This was our first Easter together. 114 people gathered for worship. Many of them were friends and family, for whom we’ve been praying. The most memorable part for me was Tyler’s story: from a place of spiritual death a year ago to spiritual life and union with Christ this year. That’s why we exist. That’s what the mission of God is about.
It was great to worship and celebrate and feast on Christ together. May this be the first of many. Happy Easter, Coram Deo!
