It is no secret that atheism and unbelief is growing in our country. I read an article in the Guardian where church membership may very well be less than the 40% mark that most of us took for granted. With the ongoing hypocritical scandals and false doctrine in many denominations and congregations, I suspect things will only get worse. But, just because Atheism is growing means that the faithful should do nothing. This morning, I will preach our response.

Thesis: Disciples of Jesus Christ are called to declare his resurrection from the grave
Antithesis: Like the time of the first disciples, there are forces in society that oppose this message
Propositional Statement: We are called to spread the Gospel of Jesus despite the obstacles before us
- We can overcome our own doubts (17)
- We can go beyond our comfort zones (19)
- When we go, Jesus will be with us (20)
