What Happens When I Die?

Sunday, we had one of our aspiring preachers from The District Church, Richard Starling, close out our First Corinthians Campaign. Richard preached from First Corinthians 15 and examined the question, "What happens after we die?"

Takeaways From The Sermon 

  • The resurrection really did happen.
  • We like children need constant reminding of the Gospel. 
  • The Gospel is not the ABC's of being a Christian, but the A to Z. 
  • Knowing the gospel and teaching the gospel is so necessary for discipleship that we must beat it into our heads continually. I preach the gospel to myself everyday because everyday I forget it. - Martin Luther
  • Belief in the bodily resurrection is not merely foundational, according to Scripture, it is essential. - Al Mohler
  • The resurrection is important, because it is foundational to all other beliefs in Christianity. 
  • If the resurrection is true, then it's all true. If the resurrection is not true, then none of it is true. - Matt Chandler 
  • We will be resurrected like Jesus. 
  • For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all shall be made alive. - First Corinthians 15:21-22
