Local Christians are celebrating the Easter holiday across the area.
Members gathered at Oak Hill Baptist Church to celebrate their faith and spend time with family and friends. Easter signifies Jesus' resurrection from the dead and ends the holy season of lent. It is the basis for the Christian faith and one of the most important days on the Christian calendar. Pastor Bryan Knight says that it's hard not to get the adrenaline going for the holiday.
"It's the tempo. It's the passion. It's the excitement. It's the energy when you walk in. You really as a pastor, you ought to be able to walk in and people ought to be able to feed from how excited you are because without Easter, you have no church."
Next year Easter will take place on Sunday April fifth.
