WE BELIEVE...in the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
There's an eternity where the physical is fully immersed with the spiritual.
Is there a resurrection of the dead? (Debated throughout history)
Early Church - 1 Corinthians 15:12 || Jesus' time - Mark 12:18 || Old Testament - Isaiah 26:19
Jesus was confident the resurrection is real.
Jesus replied, “Your mistake is that you don’t know the Scriptures, and you don’t know the power of God. For when the dead rise....” Mark 12:24
What kind of bodies will people have?
They are buried as natural human bodies, but they will be raised as spiritual bodies. For just as there are natural bodies, there are also spiritual bodies. 1 Corinthians 15:44
What's the point?
God desires an eternal relationship with those who love him.
I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. John 5:24
Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life. 1 Corinthians 15:22
With Jesus there's complete justice and harmony between the spiritual and the physical.
“Our non-believing friends and family have an instinctive sense there is more to this life; a sense there must be a place where justice is finally served and where joy and satisfaction will finally be found.”
