The Sure Foundation

On this Good Friday and Resurrection weekend, we are reminded of the very core of our faith – “Christ died for our sins…..according to the Scriptures, he was buried and he rose again according to the Scriptures.” (1 Cor. 15:3,4) Paul reminds the Corinthian believers that this truth is of FIRST importance.
