ETERNITY

We believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to the earth and the establishing of His Kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, and the final judgment. We believe that our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.

DIGGING DEEPER:

We believe the next church-wide event and end times prophecy that will occur will be the rapture, in which all believers will be “caught up” in the clouds where we will meet Jesus. This event is not the second coming of Jesus Christ. At this point all believers will stand before the Judgement Seat of Christ to receive rewards for the actions done for God during their life. After which we will lay them down before the feet of Christ. Believers in heaven will go through the Marriage of the Lamb, and Christ will begin a 7-year tribulation where God’s wrath will come upon the earth through what we believe is 28 judgments as stated in the book of Revelation (7 Seals, chapters 6-8; 7 Trumpets, chapters 8-11; 7 Vials, chapter 16; 7 Thunders, chapter 10). Christ will then come to earth for the second time and begin the battle of Armageddon where He will be victorious. After which He will bind Satan for 1,000 years and reign as King on earth. At the end of the millennial reign, Satan will be loosed for a season to gather a resistance against Christ. Satan will again be defeated and thrown into the eternal place called hell with all those who have followed him. There will be a Great White Throne Judgment for all unbelievers who will follow Satan into the eternal hell. God will then bring a New Heaven, New Earth, and New Jerusalem where all believers will reside for future eternity. 1 Thes 4:16-17; Rm 14:10-12; 2 Cor 5:10; Rev 4:10; Rev 6-11; Rev 19; Zech 14; Rev 14; Isa 63; Rev 20; Isa 65; Rev 21-22
