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
Is it a capital offense when someone lies or a man steals in order to feed his family? The heathen nations were ruled by callous men and most crimes resulted in death. Under the leadership of Moses, Jesus gave the nation of Israel criminal laws that were fair and caused the malicious perpetrator to suffer the same loss as the injured party. There was no vigilante justice as all criminal activities were settled within the court system.
When Jesus was incarnated some 1,500 years later, He had no intention of altering the existing system, but He did want to change the way people interacted with one another, specifically if someone slapped you in the face or if you were taken to court by an adversary.
Our Lord also knew there would be conflicts among Christians and so He set up a system to handle such grievances internally within the church. The sad thing is that many churches are corrupt; money and influence will determine a church trial, and thus most Christians cannot settle their disputes in the manner prescribed by Jesus.
