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
Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah, more commonly known as Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, ran afoul of King Nebuchadnezzar and his call for them to worship a golden statue. They knew about God's prohibition on idolatry but the king's threat to worship or die was real as well. These godly men were resolved to defy the king's mandate, even if it cost them their lives.
The New Testament says that Jesus became a ransom for humanity when He died on the cross for our sins. This ransom concept with the temple tax was birthed under the Mosaic Law and was a precursor of things to come. As the son of God, Jesus was exempt from paying this tribute, but He relinquished the privilege and instructed Peter how to make payment for them both. Unbelievably, it involved catching a fish and using the money found in its mouth.
Obviously, Jesus could have supernaturally materialized the money but the coin in the fish's mouth was the reward of Peter's obedience and was just enough to pay the tax. Jesus proved that no situation is too great for Him and Peter learned that God will reward the effort we put toward our walk with Him.
