We believe in THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST: that His return from heaven will be personal, visible, and glorious - a Blessed Hope for which we should constantly watch and pray, the time being unrevealed but always imminent (Acts 1:11; Revelation 1:7; Mark 13:33-37; Titus 2:11-13; Revelation 22:20); that when He comes He will first by resurrection and translation remove from the earth His waiting Church (1 Thess- alonians 4:16-18), then pour out the righteous judgments of God upon the unbelieving world (Revelation 6:1-18:24), afterward descend with His Church and establish His glorious and literal kingdom over all the nations for a thousand years (Revelation 19:1-20:6; Matthew 13:41-43), at the close of which He will raise and judge the unsaved dead (Revelation 20:11-15), and finally as the Son of David deliver up His Messianic Kingdom to God the Father (1 Corinthians 15:24-28), in order that as the Eternal Son He may reign forever with the Father in the New Heavens and the New Earth (Luke 1:32-33; Revelation 21:1-22:6).
