There is a promise revealed to us that reaches beyond tomorrow. It is the source of strength, joy, and love that grows within us. It invites us to take hold of the love of God and to fully expect His goodness in our lives. It is the light that pierces the darkness and shines through us for the world to see. It has given us purpose and a place in God’s family.

It has defeated death and has given us freedom and a new life. There is a sound of praise from all of Heaven and Earth, celebrating our Risen Savior - the hope of the world. Jesus has risen!
