Affirmation of Faith from The Heidelberg Catechism

What does the resurrection of Christ profit us?

We believe that by his resurrection
Christ has overcome death
that we might become partakers of that righteousness
which he purchased for us by his death;
that we are also by his power raised up to a new life;
and that His resurrection is a sure pledge of our resurrection.
