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
The showdown on Mount Carmel with the prophet Elijah and the prophets of Baal has to be one of the greatest displays of God's supernatural power. Elijah was just one man facing 850 prophets of Baal, the king's soldiers and a hostile crowd. The contest rules were simple: "The God that answers by fire, let him be God." The prophets of Baal went first, trying to conjure up fire, even to the point of cutting themselves. After their failure, Elijah built a stone altar, prepared the wood and the sacrifice and then proceeded to drench everything with water. God answered his simple prayer with fire from heaven that consumed the stones, wood, sacrifice and even the water!
There was no confusion in the minds of the Israelites as to who was the true and living God and the prophets of Baal were rounded up and swiftly executed. The rain returned and Elijah outran King Ahab's horses back to Jezreel. This was a mountaintop experience to be sure and yet the next day Queen Jezebel was able to instill such fear in Elijah that he ran for his life. Everyone has mountaintop experiences with forays into the valley of despair. Trusting the Lord in large and small matters is an issue that Christians struggle with on a daily basis. God knows the weakness of mankind and we can only remain strong when we completely trust in the Lord.
