The Greatest Story Ever Told

Easter

The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ truly is the greatest story ever told. He came to the earth so that we may be saved. He rescued up from the bondage of sin, giving us direct access to forgiveness. But this wasn’t possible without sacrificing his life. Be was tortured and mocked, the killed by crucifixion. But three days later he defied the grave and rose to life. Without the resurrection, there is no forgiveness. Now we can celebrate this during Easter and worship the one who came to love and save us.
