Death Is Defeated United Faith Church Celebrates!

Submitted by: United Faith Church

Ding-Ding-Ding! Death has been defeated, Jesus has won the fight! The Church is victorious! United Faith Church celebrates Jesus’ victory on the cross and explains what joys await those who know just how great this victory is. “Then he placed his right hand on me and said: ‘Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades'” (Rev. 1:17-18)

What an awesome and powerful verse! Jesus declares that He is the Living One and that He holds the keys of death and of Hades. He makes it known that He was before all things and that He has overcome all things. United Faith Church believes, in accordance with the very Word of God, that Jesus Christ was the first of many sons to rise from the dead and that He has led the way for many more. United Faith Church trusts that this power of Christ is for all who believe and trust in Him. He beat death, hell and the grave, so that the Church may walk in victory.


Yes, Christ s work on the cross opened the way for people to go to Heaven, but the power He speaks of in this verse is also meant for people to grasp now while here on earth. United Faith Church recognizes that it is by Christ and Christ alone that believers overcome and are continuously taught to surrender to Christ. Surrendering to Christ then allows Him to lead them into victory on a daily basis. His power is for those who are being led, who have put their trust in Christ to be brought from death to life now. His power is for believers to overcome sin at all times. His power is for us to never again be entangled by the corruption of this world, but to overcome the world.

United Faith Church Beliefs

UFC believes in this transforming power of Christ and has seen signs, wonders and miracles in the lives of those who have trusted and believed in Him. There is no reason, at all, for the Church to be dead when Christ is holding the keys of death and Hades in His hands. How amazing is it that, by His grace, He has locked death away from His people! What does that mean? When those who trust in Christ come into salvation, they are given God s Spirit in exchange for the death in which they once lived. How amazing the results of this victory and what good news this is for those who share in the win!

United Faith Church embraces the truth that by His Spirit, believers are given the ability to live the abundant life that Jesus Christ offers. May the sons and daughters of God continually go forth as a people who display the life He has so graciously imparted to them and to daily walk in His victory. Thank you God for the victory!
