The Second Coming of Christ

We believe in the personal and imminent return of Jesus Christ.  (Zechariah 14:4-11; Matthew 24-25; John 14:1-3; I Titus 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 1:10; 3:13; 4:13-18; 5:4-10; Revelation 19-20) We believe the Kingdom of God is both present (Matthew 12:28; Luke 17:20-21; Romans 14:17; 1 Corinthians 4:19-20; Colossians 1:13) and will yet be fully consummated (Isaiah 24:23; 33:22; 52:7; Zechariah 14:9-10; Matthew 6:10; 7:21-23; 8:11:12; Galatians 5:21; Ephesians 5:5; 2 Timothy 4:18).

We believe that great humility is needed in interpreting the prophetic scriptures.  We believe in allowing for some diversity of opinion in relation to the exact unfolding of future prophetic events.  We believe that the purpose of Bible prophesy is more to motivate Christian holiness than to develop detailed prophetic chronologies.  (1 Peter 1:10-16; 2 Peter 3:9-13)
