One Victorious Empty Tomb

All services will be live streamed on Facebook and here.

Join us online this Easter to hear about a victory that will never fade – a victory won for you. One life lived and one life given into death to fix this broken world. One victorious empty tomb as he rose from the dead. God wants you to celebrate Jesus’ victory because it means your sins are forgiven, your guilt is gone, and your relationship with God is made right.

Please be our online guest for uplifting worship, a message of hope, and a place to find victory.

Easter: The Victor's Spoils

For forty days we followed our Savior as he battled against sin, death, and the devil.  Jesus defeated every enemy that had its grip on our throats.  He triumphantly proclaimed his victory on Easter Sunday as he rose from the grave.  We have renewed our celebratory cry, “Alleluia! He is risen indeed!”

Jesus is risen indeed!  He is the conquering hero! We not only celebrate his victory, but we also rejoice over the spoils of his war that he now shares with us.

Join us at Beautiful Savior on Sundays, April 27 – June 8th, at 9:30am for this exciting series!

Battlefields Series

 Battlefields

Ever since the fall into sin, a battle has been fought between the forces of good and the forces of evil.  During the season of Lent, we follow Christ as he willingly takes up that battle as our substitute.  We will visit the various battlefields where this war has been fought – from the desert, to a watering well, to our own graves.  In each field of  battle Jesus conquers for us.

Seeking a Promise for the End of the World

Category:Events Tags : 

Seeking a Promise

What would you do if you knew the world was going to end?  Spend all your money?  Go on every vacation you ever wanted?  Mope in abysmal destitution? Find a friend?

God’s Word clearly states that the world as we know it will one day come to an abrupt end.  No one knows the day or the hour save God himself.  It will be a day of acknowledgement.  It will be a day of destruction.  It will be a day of judgement.

Such a day would seem to strike terror into human hearts.  Yet, just as surely as God promises that day will arrive, he also promises his people joy, peace, salvation, and victory on that very day.

Join Beautiful Savior for worship in November as we seek those very promises from God; promises for the end of the world.

How to Survive the End of the World?

Have you watched a doomsday movie lately?

“The Book of Eli,” “The Darkest Hour,” “The Day After Tomorrow.”

Hollywood keeps producing them. The end of the world both fascinates and frightens. What do we like most about Hollywood’s version? The inspiration of survival. Against all odds, all hope lost, humanity grabs hold of courage, defies doom, and turns the tide.

Hollywood can’t give you the real story.  It merely attempts to adequately capture the descriptions in God’s Word:

The present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men…but the day of the Lord will come like a thief.  The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.” (2 Peter 3:7, 10)

Fire. Destruction. Judgment.

For some it will be a day of judgment and destruction, grief and pain like nothing even seen or imagined before – “eternal death.” For others the end of the world will mark the beginning of a new life where pain and trouble will cease forever.

How can you be among them?  How will you survive?

When that day comes there is no amount of courage which humanity can grab hold of to turn the tide.  It’s the last day; the final end of the cosmic war between God and Satan. The key to survival is Jesus. It was Jesus’ own blood that cleansed us of our sins and rescued us from the clutches of Satan, and it is by Jesus’ own blood, poured out for all our sins that we will be ushered into heaven on that day. By the blood of Jesus we not only survive, but we will be renewed, we will be glorified, and we will be home.  Revelation describes that last day as a joyful day for those in Christ:

And there was a war in heaven…the great dragon was hurled down – that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan…Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ.  For the accuser of our bothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.  They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them!” (Revelation 12:7-12)

You will survive in Christ.

 

Words from Luther

On November 3rd, we celebrate the Reformation, which kicks off our time of worship focused on End Times.  Here follows a prayer from Martin Luther asking Christ to return:

“Grant, dear Lord God, that the blessed day of thy holy advent may come soon, so that we may be redeemed from this bad, wicked, world, the devil’s dominion, and be freed from the terrible plague which we must suffer from without and within, from wicked people and our own conscience.  Do thou dispatch this old maggot sack that we may finally get a different body, which is not full of sin, inclined to unchasteness and to everything evil, as the present one is, but one that is redeemed from all bodily and spiritual misery and made like unto thy glorious body, dear Lord Jesus Christ, that we may at last come to our glorious redemption.  Amen.

In November we celebrate Thanksgiving.  Here follows a quote from Martin Luther concerning our thanksgiving to God, which he spoke in explanation of Psalm 118:1 – “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

“This verse teaches us what the proper sacrifice is that pleases God most; for we cannot perform any greater or better work for God, nor can we render Him a nobler service than thanking Him.”

Transformation Series

Category:Events Tags : 

TransformationJoin the family of Beautiful Savior in the month of June as we discover the amazing transformation Jesus brings to our life!

Apart from Jesus, we find ourselves buried in the dirt and mud of our own sins.  Finding deception within our own minds, we seek to fulfill desires that leave us unsatisfied.  When we look at our life it is anything but beautiful.  We might feel as insignificant as a worm.

Jesus brings restoration, life, beauty, and transformation.  He transforms our life from mundane to extraordinary, from pointless to fulfilling, from death to life.

Join us on the Sundays in June 2013 and discover how your life can be transformed in Jesus.
