Source of Offense
In two weeks we will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. Almost every church around the world will be, in one way or another, talking about the resurrection. But the resurrection would have been neither complete nor possible without the blood.
Without the blood, we have no hope. Without the blood, we have no cleansing from sin. Without the blood, we have no power over the enemy. Without the blood, we would spend eternity in hell. There is nothing more precious to the born-again spirit, nor more offensive to the carnal mind and the forces of darkness than the blood of Jesus.
Choose your connection speed above as we join together in worship and see what the Bible teaches us about the blood of the precious Lamb of God.

An Optional Message?
Unless God instructs otherwise, a teacher or preacher can cover everything necessary for a powerful, mature relationship with Jesus, without ever talking about whether Paul's thorn in the flesh was an evil spirit or an ingrown toenail, or whether Jesus will return before, during, or after the tribulation, or whether the forbidden fruit in the garden was an apple or a prickly pear.
Is the blood of Jesus one of those issues? Is it acceptable for us to sidestep the issue of the blood of God's Son because it offends some people, or because we think the world won't understand it or it's not seeker friendly? Is this one of those optional issues that we can do with or without?
By opting out of discussions about the blood and other topics our flesh and the devil despise, we are robbing those around us of life. But our purpose for taking the Word of God into the virtual Internet community we've been called to reach is to present the full power of God for Salvation, transformation, and a life-changing, ongoing encounter with Jesus.
We're not afraid to talk about the blood of Jesus, a real and eternal hell, the fact that sin is sin by any name, and that Jesus Christ is the only way to the Father. And it's because of your continued prayers and support that lives continue to be transformed by the power of the Word of God.
Currently there are more than 4,972,227 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 200,000 to 350,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
