Welcome to Resurrection Life of Jesus Church. We are a Bible centered group of believers who desire to grow in the full knowledge of Jesus Christ without compromise to His Word. We believe, teach and practice all things that Jesus taught and were practiced by the Church in the book of the Acts of the Apostles. Jesus called his disciples to be salt and light. Salt is a preservative but it is also something that adds savor and enjoyment to our daily food. Light is a symbol of truth; it is comforting, penetrating, guiding and exposes darkness. We seek to preserve biblical truth and shed the glorious light of the Gospel in a world that is consumed by darkness.

ABOUT THE VIDEO
In the Old Testament, the Hebrew tribes were surrounded by different nations who worshiped many deities and there was no central god in their religious system. The Israelites on the other hand had one God that was expressed in the fullness of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Elohim wanted to settle the matter with the Israelites that there were no other gods in existence. He loved the children of Israel immensely but also promised to would discipline them if they went astray.
Elohim promised they would be strong as long as they served Him wholeheartedly but they would be punished if they were unfaithful and went whoring after other gods. The end result was that the people of Israel feared God and did not fully understand Him.
The prophet Isaiah told the people that God wanted to forgive them, pour out blessings and heal them. But the rabbis in Israel were never able to convey this message and the people never had an image of a loving heavenly Father. King David experienced God's judgment but he was also familiar with God's mercy and forgiveness and that is why he wrote: "The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy." You can read the words for yourself in Psalm 103.
