He is risen!
We are so grateful that you have joined us today as we celebrate and rejoice in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The resurrection of Jesus is one of those seemingly unbelievable historical claims that is absolutely essential to our faith. In fact, the apostle Paul said that it was so central to Christian belief that if it wasn’t true, Christians were the saddest and most pitiable people on the planet. According to Paul’s logic, if Jesus rose from the dead, He is everything He said He was and so our lives should be totally submitted to Him. On the other hand, if He didn’t rise from the dead, then a life aligned with His teachings and ways makes little to no sense at all. Dr. Timothy Keller summarized it well when he said, "If Jesus rose from the dead, then you have to accept all that he said; if he didn't rise from the dead, then why worry about any of what he said? The issue on which everything hangs is not whether or not you like his teaching but whether or not he rose from the dead.”
Here at The Austin Stone, we would love to be able to serve you if you are trying to figure out if this claim is true or if you already believe that it’s true and are trying to align your life with the implications of Jesus’s death and resurrection. We would love to meet you, hear your questions, get you connected into loving community, and partner with you in your pursuit of greater truth.
Please feel free to reach out to us if we can help you in any way.
The tomb is empty. The news is good. Our Lord is alive.
We believe that.
