The Resurrection of Jesus

The Message of Christmas is all about the facts of the Virgin Birth, Sinless Life, Death on the Cross for the sins of the world, Burial in a borrowed tomb, and the Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, who is the Anointed One of God, that gives hope of the Forgiveness of sin, and eternal life with Him in His Heaven.

Pastor Bill Thorn is bringing a message about The Resurrection of Jesus Christ, and what is means to individuals and to the world.


Rev. Don O'Dey   Thanks to Hailey Scott for the Beautiful Bows made for us.  Look Burgess Baptist Church at Christmas time.  Thanks to all who made it happen.

"In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the earth..."

Remember those who gave their lives to secure and guarantee America's freedoms we enjoy.

God Bless and Protect our men and women of our Armed Forces.

We need to be in constant prayer for our country, those affected by the Carona Virus, our leaders for wisdom to make good decisions, and unity for America.

Extreme violence has broken out throughout our country.  Many are using  a pretext to pillage and destroy, as well as injure and murder many police officers and innocent protesters.

This is turning away from the things that made America the great nation it is.  Please be in prayer for Divine guidance, justice, peace, and healing for America.

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD."

Pray America will return to following The Lord Jesus.
