Easter

Explore the saving power of Jesus with us this Easter through Holy Week devotionals, Good Friday events, and worship at one of our two Northwest Arkansas locations on Easter weekend, April 19-21.

1 Peter 1:3

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”

 

From the rejection and pain of Good Friday, through the silence, questions, and doubts of Holy Saturday, Jesus emerged victorious over sin and death on Easter! He conquered the grave and opened the gates of heaven for all who believe.

We invite you to observe Holy Week 2019 with us at Fellowship Bible Church of NWA! Sign-up for Daily Devotionals, use our online Family Devotional at home, bring your family to a Good Friday community event occurring in Bentonville, Rogers, Springdale, or Fayetteville, and celebrate His Resurrection with us at one of our 14 Easter Weekend Services.

The call this Easter is to embrace the reality of the resurrection. Receive anew all the implications of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection…

The God of the universe sympathizes with our weakness. In fact, He became sin that we could be free from it! Jesus, the Holy One, died to put an end to the finality of death. Instead of death being our end, we can now pass through it like a shadow and find life and joy on the other side! Finally, He invites us to enter into His resurrection life. Jesus is Lord of all, and we are co-heirs with Him to abundant, eternal life!

HE IS RISEN!

Why Look for the Living among the Dead?

It is early morning. The night sky is turning purple as stars fade in the orange hues rising from the east. Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and Mary, the mother of James, make their way to the tomb of Jesus. These women share a common grief, born out of common trauma they experienced two days earlier. As the lifeless body of Christ was let down from the Cross, it was into the arms of these women. And now they are the first to come to the tomb…

His Last Words

My father-in-law passed away this year. This will be my wife’s first Easter without him. She was a faithful, caring daughter as she sat with him in his last days. She didn’t want him to die alone; she wanted to hear his last words. The last words of a loved one leave an impression. The Gospels record Jesus saying seven short sentences on the Cross. Short because of His slow suffocation. Sentences because we need to feel the weight…

The Journey to the Cross

Perhaps you are alone right now, in the quiet, reading your Bible. You woke up this morning realizing that today is Good Friday, the day we set aside to remember the crucifixion of our Lord. If you are a follower of Christ, there is something in your soul that darkens on this day. So, if you have the privilege of solitude, linger here for a few minutes. We live in a world that seems to manufacture noise! Finding quiet and stillness is as elusive as…
