Through our Angels Among Us ministry, you can help people within our church by bringing them a meal. To join, send an email to info@HitTheRiver.com letting us know you’d like to be part of this ministry. When a need arises, you will receive an email asking if you can sign up to bring a meal.

I have hope in life and eternity because of the resurrection of Jesus.
1. Everything hinges on the resurrection.
2. It was impossible to fake the resurrection.
3. All the evidence supports the resurrection.
A. The tomb was empty.
B. It was impossible to steal the body.
C. It was impossible for Jesus to resuscitate victoriously.
D. Jesus’ followers hadn’t gone to the wrong tomb by mistake
E. There were multiple eyewitnesses of Jesus.
F. The historical evidence supports the resurrection.
“Let’s assume that the written accounts of His appearances to hundreds of people are false. I want to pose a question. With an event so well publicized, don’t you think that it’s reasonable that one historian, one eyewitness, one antagonist would record for all time that he had seen Christ’s body? ... The silence of history is deafening when it comes to the testimony against the resurrection.” -Tom Anderson, Former President, California Trial Lawyers Association
G. The disciples put their lives where their faith was.
H. The greatest persecutor became Jesus’ best-known follower.
I. Jesus’ followers were immediately bold.
J. Jesus has changed lives throughout history to today.
“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.’ That is the one thing we must not say.

A man who has said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic—on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg—or else he would be the Devil of Hell.

You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at his feet and call Him Lord and God.” -C.S. Lewis in Mere Christianity
