Easter Declaration

Resurrected Jesus

Resurrected Jesus

For us, Easter comes in the springtime of the year, when new buds and green leaves appear after a long winter. Easter is the celebration of Jesus Christ’s universal resurrection, with the promise that all in their proper order will have their bodies and spirits reunited immortally, free from disease, pain, or death. Christ’s redeeming power saves all mankind from physical death. At the resurrection, new life will spring forth from the grave with excitement exceeding any earthly expectation. Another gift of the Savior comes through the Atonement, when He paid the price for all our sins. We are sanctified as we repent and are baptized through proper authority, and endure faithfully to the end. Without this great gift, we would all suffer a spiritual death or separation from God’s presence. A powerful witness of the Savior Jesus Christ by His living apostles can be found at: http://jesuschrist.lds.org/testimonies-of-him/articles/the-living-christ-the-testimony-of-the-apostles-of-the-church-of-jesus-christ-of-latter-day-saints?&lang=eng Here is a summarizing statement: “We bear testimony, as His duly ordained Apostles—that Jesus is the Living Christ, the immortal Son of God. He is the great King Immanuel, who stands today on the right hand of His Father. He is the light, the life, and the hope of the world. His way is the path that leads to happiness in this life and eternal life in the world to come. God be thanked for the matchless gift of His divine Son.”
