Pastor Bill Calvin delivers the Easter message declaring that Jesus is alive and therefore we have HOPE !! Sin is anything that displeases God, for sin hurts other people as well as God. God hates sin for what it does to someone He loves. Sin is the loss of freedom because we become slaves, like an addict, to our sin. Jesus offers us deliverance from sin !! He rose again, so there is no reason to fear death! Your hopes and dreams can be brought back to life by Jesus!!
