Doctrine: The End Times

We believe that the End Times will begin with the Rapture of the Church when Jesus will return to take us to be with Him (1 Thess. 4:13-18; 5:9). Following this, all believers will appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ to be rewarded according to their works (Rom. 14:10-12; 2 Cor. 5:8-10). The next event on earth is the Tribulation, a period of seven years where God will pour out His wrath on the earth (Matt. 24:15-22; 1 Thess. 5:2-3; Rev. 6-16). After this, Jesus will physically return to conquer the earth (Rev. 19:11-21) and begin the Millennium, a period of 1000 years during which He will reign on the throne of David (Rev. 20:1-6). At the end of the 1000 years, Satan and his armies will rebel but will be completely defeated (Rev. 20:7-10). All unbelievers will then be resurrected to be judged by God at the Great White Throne Judgment and sentenced to eternity in the lake of fire (Rev. 20:11-15). After this, God will wipe away all tears and create a new heaven and earth free from pain, sorrow, and death (Rev. 21:1-4) where we will be forever with the Lord (1 Thess. 4:17-18).
