Sunrise Service at the Nation's Capitol is a Growing Trend for Christians Reclaiming America

Raphael Poch : Mar 30, 2015  Charisma News

"We're there for one purpose: Not to grow our church, no political spin; we're there to declare to the city, the nation and the world that Christ has risen." -Pastor Amos Dodge

"We believe in God the Father
"We believe in Jesus Christ
"We believe in the Holy Spirit
"That He's given us new life."

The anthem is inspiring, and Newsboys' Michael Tait will lead thousands in that worshipful declaration at the Easter Sunrise Service at the Lincoln Memorial, April 5.

In its 37th reiteration, Pastor Amos Dodge and Capital Church see their work not as an event, but as an assignment from the Lord.

"We keep it pretty pure and simple," Dodge says. "We're there for one purpose: Not to grow our church, no political spin; we're there to declare to the city, the nation and the world that Christ has risen."

The celebration of life, death and resurrection has grown from just over 100 people to nearly 6,000. It's so popular, Washington ranks it as one of the top 50 things every local DC resident needs on his or her bucket list.
