7. Of Things to Come

 

We believe in the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. This great climatic event will be visible and personal and will herald the general resurrection and final judgment. The bodies of the just and unjust alike will be raised from the dead, when the ungodly will hear the dreadful sentence of the righteous Judge and will be banished for ever from the presence of God, while the Church will be presented faultless through the merits of Christ and will then begin to enjoy the everlasting blessedness of the new creation purged of sin and filled with divine glory. To this personal return of Christ we look forward with eager anticipation.

"Even so, come Lord Jesus" Amen.
