Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Russian Church of Evangelical Faith Christians we wish you Happy Easter! Christ is Risen! The triumphant message of the Resurrection brings joy and reminds of the greatest miracle, ‘that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and he was buried and … he rose again on the third day according to the scriptures...’ (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4).

MOSCOW (RUSSIA) - On Friday, June 24, 2016, Russia's State Duma approved a final pakage of several anti-terrorist laws suggested by deputy Irina Yarovaya and Senator Viktor Ozerov. It has already been recognized as some of the harshest and most repressive legislation in post-Soviet history that Russian lawmakers voted on.

Dear Friends! Joyfully we celebrate Passover, the time when the Lord granted us freedom from slavery of sin. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us and rose from the dead! (1 Cor. 5:7)

We pray the resurrection of Jesus Christ and His life abide in each of us, for only in Him we find hope and a future.

May the Passover of Jesus Christ become real in lives of our loved ones and the peace of God and His grace rest in your hearts! Happy Easter!

With love and prayers,

Edward Grabovenko

Few things are more iconic than the Star of Bethlehem — the star Magi from the east followed to ultimately find and worship the Christ Child. Over the centuries, many have speculated that the Star of Bethlehem was some sort of natural phenomenon that took place, but Dr. Richard Hammar, who teaches astronomy at Evangel University (and is also well known for his standard-setting prowess when it comes to church and law), believes the common explanations simply fall short. Hammar says he views the Star of Bethlehem as one of the most endearing yet mysterious aspects of the Christmas story as it only appears in one passage in the gospels, and that being in the Gospel of Matthew.
