Easter is always such a special time of the year. There is such beauty and grace in being able to sit back and understand that majesty of an all mighty God. Many of the churches in the community always have incredible and historic activity to celebrate Easter and the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. People come together for times of fellowship and worship all across the County in different churches. Here locally, one church is entering its 25th year anniversary for a very special play.
Since 1992, Faith Baptist Church has performed their Easter play “He’s Alive” a harrowing and true recollection of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, all based in biblical fact. It is a powerful, unyielding reminder of Christ’s love for us all, knowing that God’s own son gave his life so that we might be forgiven. The play has powerful performances, incredible visual effects, and a message of hope through the power of Grace. This year, for the first time in many years, the play will be of no cost to the public so that everyone will have the opportunity to experience the power of Jesus first hand.
Pastor Donald Yancy spoke about the play, sharing some of the history of the production. Since 1992, “He’s Alive” has been a staple of the Church, just one of many events that they host throughout the year. For a brief period, the title of the production was listed by a new name, “Worthy is the Lamb”, before returning to its original name. Pastor Donald stated that the decision to offer the play for free was something that God has laid upon his heart and that they have never turned anyone away from this play. This play is for everyone and anyone and the church hopes to reach as many people as it can through the power of “He’s Alive.”
This year, “He’s Alive” will be held on April 7, 8, 14, and 15, Friday and Saturday nights. The play begins at 7 pm, with doors opening at 6. The power of this play cannot simply be stated in words and is something that must be experienced firsthand. In fact, this is just one of many different events hosted by the church each year, including the popular Judgment Journey which sees thousands of visitors every year and so many souls saved. Come on out to “He’s Alive” and see what they Lord has waiting for you.
