During the first two weekends of December annually, more than 600 First Baptist family members present the story of Christ’s birth, life, death and Resurrection. A dazzling blend of heart-stirring music, drama, and dance will transport you back to the very first Christmas in Bethlehem, as well as the miracles, crucifixion, resurrection and Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Be sure to get your tickets early for this annual Heart of America tradition.
