We believe in the Christian's hope, the soon-coming, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus promised to return for His church. Scriptures tell us that when Jesus returns, the dead in Christ shall rise first; then we, which are alive and remain, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. Immediately after this catching away of the saints, the Tribulation period, spoken of in Revelation, will begin.
Following the Tribulation, Jesus shall visibly return to earth, accompanied by the saints, to set up His Kingdom on the earth. He shall reign with His saints on the earth for a thousand years, during which time Satan will be bound in the bottomless pit.
After this 1,000-year period, Satan will be loosed for a short time, ending in his eternal torment in the lake of fire while the Great White Throne Judgment occurs for those who never received the Lord in their earthly lifetime. Then the new heavens and the new earth will be revealed and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
