Letter from Dr. Bailey

Dear Friend,

This Easter season, I invite you to embrace two life-transforming truths.

First, your life is neither grounded nor bound in present circumstances but in eternal realities. Whether we are faced with the death of friends and loved ones, natural disasters, illness, or simply the distraction of daily troubles, the promise of our resurrected life gives us a hope and security the world does not understand (Philippians 4:6–7).

Second, living as we do between Christ’s first advent and His second coming, we can and should share our hope with others. Sharing our hope in Christ is a fulfillment of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19–20), and Easter is an excellent window of opportunity to start a conversation with a nonbeliever about the gospel.

As you know, investing in Dallas Theological Seminary is another effective way to help share the hope of the gospel with the world. For 90 years, DTS has taught all 66 books of the Bible in our mission to glorify God by equipping godly servant-leaders for the proclamation of His Word and the building up of the body of Christ worldwide.

Your gift today will sustain this calling now and for the future. Thank you for being our co-laborer in the cause of Christ as, together, we stand firm in the uncompromising truth of the Bible (1 Corinthians 15:58). May God bless your Easter season with joy in the defeat of death, hope in the family celebration to come, and reminders of the reality of heaven.

With grateful expectancy,

Dr. Bailey
