Eternity

Everything that we believe about "Eternity"

ETERNITY

We believe that mankind was made in the image of God and was created to exist forever with Him; we will either eternally exist in perfect union with God through forgiveness and salvation, or we will be eternally separated from God by sin.

John 3:16; Romans 6:23; 1 John 2:25, 5:11-13; Revelation 20:15

HEAVEN

Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all who believe in Jesus Christ.

Matthew 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:34; John 17:24; 2 Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 11:16; 1 Peter 1:4

HELL

Hell was not created for man, but for the devil and the fallen angels. After living one life on Earth, those who have rejected Christ will be judged justly by God and separated from Him. Even with this, we believe that God is constantly pursing humanity, not wanting anyone to suffer this consequence.

Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8

RESURRECTION

Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. One day all believers in Christ will also be physically resurrected in glorified bodies and dwell in Heaven with God.

Luke 24:16, 36, 39; John 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4; Acts 24:15; 1 Corinthians 15:42, 44; Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21

SECOND COMING

Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures.

Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8
