• WHO WE ARE

    If you are new to Resurrection Life we are a body of believers that are in love with God and we love people. God birthed the church in 1989 with founding Pastors James and Tish Hickman. We are a vibrant, and enthusiastic church. A church that is full of life, believing that Jesus came to give us a life on this earth that is abundant.

     

    We have many ministries that meet the needs of the whole family; spirit, soul, and body. We are a whole ministry for the whole family. Resurrection Life Church is a dynamic, inter-denominational church located in Pearl River County. There are a full-range of ministries for the entire family.

     

    Not only are there ministries to minister to you but opportunities for you to give your life away.

     

    The joy of receiving life is only surpassed by the joy of giving life.

     

    One of our core values of Resurrection Life is about the life that you can give not just about receiving all the time. "Receiving life is only surpassed by the joy of giving life."

  • OUR DNA

    Our DNA

     

    Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a nucleic acid that contains the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms and some viruses. The main role of DNA molecules is the long-term storage of information. DNA is often compared to a set of blueprints or a recipe, or a code, since it contains the instructions needed to construct other components of cells, such as proteins and RNA molecules. The DNA segments that carry this genetic information are called genes, but other DNA sequences have structural purposes, or are involved in regulating the use of this genetic information.

     

    CORE VALUES

     

    * People are the Center of God's Heart

    * Priesthood of the Believer

    * Intimacy with the Father

    * Family and the next Generation

    * We can change the World

    _________________________________________

     

    Our values are what define us.

     

    We live our lives based on our values. You can say all day that you believe a certain way but it is your value system that will be lived out on a daily basis. That is why we have these core values. These are the five basic values that determine what we do as a church and how we love our God and community.

     

    It is these values that help empower us as a staff and church to fulfill the mission that God has called us to.

     

    The priesthood of the believer is so vital to us as a church that we have designed many of our ministries and classes to teach our people to walk out their godly roles as priests. People are more important to us than our programs and ministries. People are truly the most valuable of all. Each person can truly have an intimate relationship with our Father God. We believe this so much that our worship and services are structured in such a way that they give you time to commune and fellowship with Him, helping you build a deeper relationship with Him. Since we are priests and we place such a high value on people, we know that we can affect change in our world -- not just for this generation but also for the generation to come.

     

  • WE BELIEVE

    1. Holy Bible:

    The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writings, it is inspired, infallible, and inerrant. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16: 25-26)

     

    2. Trinity:

    There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and co-eternal. (I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11)

     

    3. Jesus Christ:

    Jesus Christ is God, the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind, and thus atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory. (John 1:1, 14, 20-28; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; I Timothy 2:5)

     

    4. Virgin Birth:

    Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third person of the Trinity), in the Virgin Mary’s womb; therefore, He is the Son of God. (Matthew 1:18, 23-25; Luke 1:27-35; Isaiah 7:14)

     

    5. Redemption:

    Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression, he fell; his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. (Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21)

     

    6. Regeneration:

    Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression, he fell; his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. (Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21)

     

    7. Salvation:

    We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ: His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 9:22)

     

    8. Repentance:

    Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation. (Acts 2:21, 3:19; I John 1:9)

     

    9. Sanctification:

    Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ’s character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (I Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; II Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18; II Thessalonians 2:1-3; Romans 8:29, 12:1-2; Hebrews 2:11)

     

    10. Jesus’ Blood:

    The blood that Jesus Christ shed on the cross of Calvary was sinless and is 100% sufficient to cleanse mankind of all sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be punished for both our sinfulness and our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin which is death. (I John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5-9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29)

     

    11. Jesus Christ Indwells All Believers:

    Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and love inside them by his Holy Spirit. They relinquish the authority of their lives over to Him, thus making Jesus the Lord and Savior of their lives. They put their trust in what Jesus accomplished for them when He died, was buried, and rose again from the dead. (John 1:12, 12:17, 23, 15:4; Romans 8:11; Revelations 3:20)

     

    12. Baptism in the Holy Spirit:

    Given at Pentecost, it is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His Ascension, to empower the Church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth. (Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5, 2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6)

     

     

    13. The Gifts of the Holy Spirit:

    The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection and confirm the power of the Gospel. The Bible lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the scriptures and should never be used in violation of biblical parameters. (Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12:4-8; Ephesians 4:16; II Timothy 1:5-16, 4:14; I Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; I Peter 4:10)

     

    14. The Church:

    The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus’ Great Commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the Church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20-23)

     

    15. Two Sacraments:

     

    A. Water Baptism: Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38)

     

    B. The Lord’s Supper: A unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice (the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross. (Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, 36-38; 10: 47-48)

     

    16. Healing the Sick:

    Healing of the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus and included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples. It is given as a sign that follows believers. It is also a part of Jesus’ work on the Cross and one to the gifts of the Spirit. (Psalm 103:2-3; Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:16-17; Acts 8:6-7; James 5:14-16; I Corinthians 12:9-28; Romans 11:29)

     

    17. God’s Will for Provision:

    It is the Father’s will for believers to become whole, healthy, and successful in all areas of life. Because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God’s will while on earth. That fact, though, should never prevent all believers from seeking the full benefits of Christ’s provision in order to better serve others.

     

    A. Spiritual (John 3:3-11; II Corinthians 5:12-21; Romans 10:9-10)

    B. Mental and Emotional (II Timothy 1:7, 2:11; Philippians 4:7-8; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 26:3)

    C. Physical (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:17; I Peter 2:24)

    D. Financial (Joshua 1:8; Malachi 3:10-11; Luke 6:38; II Corinthians 9:6-10; Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Psalm 34:10, 84:11; Philippians 4:19)

     

    18. Resurrection:

    Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of life, and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation. (Luke 24:16, 36, 39; John 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4; Acts 24:15; I Corinthians 15:42, 44; Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21)

     

    19. Heaven:

    Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21; John 17:24; II Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 11:16; I Peter 1:4)

     

    20. Hell:

    After living one life on earth, the unbelievers will be judged by God and sent to hell where they will be eternally tormented with the devil and the fallen angels. (Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:18)

     

    21. Second Coming:

    Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the scriptures. (Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:15-17; II Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7)
