Hope Beyond the Creeds: Focusing Fully on Jesus Christ, Part 1

June 22, 2023

Christians tend to focus on certain meaningful aspects of Jesus’ life like His baptism, His crucifixion, and His resurrection . . . and rightly so!

The New Testament, however, addresses other parts of Jesus’ ministry that are also filled with theological and practical significance. One particularly critical point was His descent into hell to proclaim victory over evil spirits.

Enter into the fascinating message of 1 Peter 3:18–22 with Pastor Chuck Swindoll to see the essential truth that Jesus’ death and resurrection (and everything He did in between) offers believers abundant hope.

References: 1 Peter 3:18-22
