The Resurrection Proved

WHAT DID THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST PROVE AND PROVIDE?


The whole purpose of our ministry is to teach you the Word of God and what the Father would have you to know about Him and His Son.

Christianity more than anything else is a belief about the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
