On April 19, 2020, the Sunday online service of the Shilipu Church in Baoji City began with a greeting from Pastor Wang Binghi, "Brothers and sisters, peace in the Lord."
Next, Pastor Wang reminded everyone to turn in the new hymn book to page 106, and asked everyone to look at the picture of the hymn page on their screens at the same time. As the piano music rang out, the congregation began singing "The Song of Christ's Resurrection" in unison.
Elder Pian Xianhua preached on the theme of "The Facts of Jesus' Resurrection," based on 1 Corinthians 15: 12-58. She said that the resurrection of the Lord brings us comfort, strength and hope. Those who do not believe in God believe that all is finished when they die, and they should enjoy life while they can. But Christians who believe in the Lord know that they have eternal life after death. Believing in the Lord and living by his example prepares us for eternal life in the future.
