“I believe in the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.”

Obviously one cannot be a Christian without believing in the Resurrection of Jesus. In the Creed we pray: “For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.” And we pray at the end of the Creed: “I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.” Pope Benedict said it so well a few years back: “The event of Christ’s death and Resurrection is the heart of Christianity, principal fulcrum of our faith, powerful lever of our certainty, impetuous wind that sweeps away every fear and indecision, every doubt and human calculation.” Because of our faith in Jesus, the Risen Lord, we now have joy and hope, because we know that death is now no longer the end of everything. “Christ having risen from the dead, dies no more; death will no longer have dominion over him.” – Romans 6:9
