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
Solomon was visited by a queen from the African nation of Sheba who had heard stories of his fantastic wisdom and wealth and she traveled 4,000 miles to meet this legendary man. The Bible does not say how long Makeda stayed in Jerusalem, but the chronicles of Ethiopian history indicate that she and Solomon had sexual intercourse and she gave birth to a son on her way home, suggesting Makeda must have stayed in Jerusalem for at least nine months.
The queen also converted to the faith of Israel and brought Levites back to Sheba. All the men in Ethiopia were circumcised and became full-fledged Jews even though they had no bloodline to Abraham. This story is corroborated in the Book of Acts when Philip meets the treasurer from Ethiopia and he is converted to Christ. As a result, Ethiopian Jews began to convert to Christianity in the first century and the Coptic Christian Church was born. However, not all men converted to the Christian faith and that is the reason there are still black Jews in Ethiopia.
This is a fascinating story of God reaching into Africa and rescuing the people of Sheba from pagan worship some 2,900 years ago.
