We believe in the “blessed hope”: the personal, imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ. His return has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost. The saved are raised to eternal life in heaven which will be a bodily existence on the new heaven and earth enjoying this world renewed without sin and full and wonderful unhindered intimacy with God (Matthew 25:34John 14:22 Corinthians 5:1Revelation 2:7). The lost are raised to eternal torment in hell in conscious separation from God. (Matthew 8:11Matthew 10:28Matthew 13:49-50Mark 9:47-48Luke 12:5Revelation 21:8).
