Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider writes: “Our belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ constitutes the foundation of our faith and is the very heart of the gospel.”

This foundation of our faith was celebrated on Easter Sunday 5 April 2014, a day universally celebrated as the day Jesus Christ arose from the dead. For the members from the congregation of Rugby, who were served from the church in Phoenix, the day was extra festive. The District Apostle NE Barnes served the congregation and based the sermon on Acts 4:33 “And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus”. During the divine service the Golden Wedding Anniversary Blessing was bestowed upon the retired Bishop M Gaskin and his wife, Rene. All too soon an exciting weekend came to an end which left lasting impressions in the hearts of those present who will surely proclaim: “Indeed the Lord has risen ”.
