Welcome to Easter Sunday

    WELCOME TO EASTER SUNDAY at Westside Baptist Church! For almost 60 years, this church has been a lighthouse on the Westside of Jacksonville. It is our mission to connect all generations to Jesus Christ, one person at a time! Through our worship services, small group Bible studies, and various ministries, our passion is to see people have a life-changing experience with the living Lord Jesus. Thank you for worshipping with us today!

    TODAY IS APRIL FOOLS DAY. Some would say it is appropriate that Easter falls on April Fools Day because those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God are all fools. However, the Bible clearly teaches that Jesus is “the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16).

    TODAY IS APRIL FOOLS DAY. Some would say it is appropriate that Easter falls on April Fools Day because those who believe that Jesus died for the sins of the world are all fools. However, the Bible clearly teaches that “the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:6).

    TODAY IS APRIL FOOLS DAY. Some would say it is appropriate that Easter falls on April Fools Day because those who believe that Jesus actually died on the cross are all fools. However, the Bible clearly teaches that “he gave up the ghost” (John 19:30) and that the Roman soldiers did not break the bones in his legs when they saw “that he was dead already” (John 19:33).

    TODAY IS APRIL FOOLS DAY. Some would say it is appropriate that Easter falls on April Fools Day because those who believe that Jesus died and came back to life are all fools. However, the Bible clearly teaches that “he is risen” (Matthew 28:6).

    IF THE BIBLE IS TRUE (and I believe it is) the wisest, most logical, most rational, most reasonable thing you will ever do is to place your faith in Jesus Christ. If you will, Jesus will take up residence in your life and you will never be the same; not in this life or the next life. Happy Easter!
