The cross is the gate to the kingdom of heaven

When the cross – this powerful instrument – is active in us, a new life has begun.

To most people, the message of the cross is a stumbling block and cause for offense. Yet, it is mankind’s only solution, the only gate to life and glory. In this inspiring message, Kaare J. Smith clearly spells out the sacrifice that the cross requires, and concludes with an incredibly hopeful vision of the results.

This clip is an excerpt of a message by Kaare J. Smith, the leader of Brunstad Christian Church (BCC), from a BCC New Year’s conference.
