Pastor Tara VinCross
Christ was risen on the day of the offering of First Fruits. The first crops of the harvest offered to God – a promise of much more to come. Join us as Pastor Tara explores this beautiful significance of the Resurrection.
Scripture: I Corinthians 15:20-23
“So Christ the first fruits represented the great spiritual harvest to be gathered for the kingdom of God. His resurrection is the type and pledge of the resurrection of all the righteous dead. “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him.” 1 Thess. 4:14, Desire of Ages, p. 786-787

The eternal act of redemption and acceptance. Hands and feet and heart pierced as an everlasting covenant.
Scripture: Philippians 2:5-11
“The spotless Son of God hung upon the cross, His flesh lacerated with stripes; those hands so often reached out in blessing, nailed to the wooden bars; those feet so tireless on ministries of love, spiked to the tree; that royal head pierced by the crown of thorns; those quivering lips shaped to the cry of woe. And all that He endured the blood drops that flowed from His head, His hands, His feet, the agony that racked His frame, and the unutterable anguish that filled His soul at the hiding of His Father’s face speaks to each child of humanity, declaring, It is for thee that the Son of God consents to bear this burden of guilt; for thee He spoils the domain of death, and opens the gates of Paradise. He who stilled the angry waves and walked the foam-capped billows, who made devils tremble and disease flee, who opened blind eyes and called forth the dead to life, offers Himself upon the cross as a sacrifice, and this from love to thee.” Desire of Ages, p. 755

Pastor Keith Lim
Join Guest Pastor Keith Lim for his sermon titled “Who has the greatest Father?”
“You who feel the most unworthy, fear not to commit your case to God. When He gave Himself in Christ for the sin of the world, He undertook the case of every soul. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Will He not fulfill the gracious word given for our encouragement and strength?” Christ’s Object Lessons, p-174
