This is it! This is what God has been promising since Genesis 3:15, when the serpent heard his fate: you will strike His heel, but He will crush your head. This morning when our Christ rose from the dead, He proves that He is the power that conquers all sin! We rejoice today in the Christ who dies and yet lives again! He is risen! He is risen indeed!

Guests of Grace, please fill out a guest card and place it in the offering plate or simply leave it in your seat. We are so glad to see you today!

Every Easter, Nazarenes worldwide will celebrate our shared life in Christ by generously participating in our annual Easter Offering for the World Evangelism Fund. As we share together in the Easter offering, our combined generosity will provide resources to the ministries of the Church of the Nazarene in 159 world areas. Together, we are changing lives through Christ by our faithful giving.

We believe in one God, the Creator of all things, who reveals Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully human at the same time, who became a man in order to bring us salvation. We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is active in the world today showing us our sin, bringing the new birth to those who repent, making believers holy, and guiding into all truth as it is in Jesus. We believe the Bible is the Word of God. We believe everyone is born in sin, needing the Savior, and that everyone has chosen to sin against God by rebellion and disobedience--so, everyone needs God's forgiveness and cleansing and that salvation is offered to everyone through Christ. We believe God enables us to turn from sin, but does not force us to do so. Each person must repent, turn away from sin, and trust Christ. We believe that when we turn to Christ, all our past sins are erased and we are adopted into God's family. After this, we need the complete control of the Holy Spirit in our lives, who enables the believer to live a consistent Christian life. We believe the Church Universal is made up of all persons whose sins have been forgiven and that all believers need the church's support and fellowship. We believe baptism and the Lord's Supper are gifts from Christ that honor Him and nourish us. We also believe in God's healing power. We believe Jesus Christ is coming again.

Prayer requests will stay on the list for 4 weeks unless asked to be continued.
