Easter at Autumn Ridge Church

EASTER IS THE HIGH-POINT OF OUR YEAR

The Apostle Paul states it this way in the New Testament book of 1 Corinthians:

If there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, then all our preaching is useless, and your faith is useless. And we apostles would all be lying about God—for we have said that God raised Christ from the grave. But that can’t be true if there is no resurrection of the dead. And if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins.  ~I Corinthians 15:13-17

Thus, we celebrate the fact of Christ’s resurrection and that, through Christ, our sins have been forgiven.

We invite you to join us as we celebrate the Easter Season at Autumn Ridge Church.
