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 kings of Israel had an ongoing problem in using idolatry to control the people. King Jeroboam tried to win the people’s loyalty through the worship of golden calves much like Aaron had done after leaving Egypt.
Jehoahaz succeeded his father, Jehu, to become the next king and he continued the tradition of idolatry until the situation was so dire with Syria that he called upon the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
He knew the golden calves were a hoax and sought deliverance from the real God. However, politics superseded truth and religion was merely the crutch to achieve the desired goal. He ended up fighting a war of attrition against the Syrians that left him with a drastically reduced army.
Jehoahaz was a political hack that didn’t produce anything of value for the kingdom of God. He enjoyed good food and partied with women, but he had nothing to show for his seventeen years as king.
