There are many scenarios Christians have held regarding the Scriptural teaching of the second coming of Jesus Christ and the end of history. We believe this event includes the essentials of Jesus' visible, physical return to earth, God's final judgment and the establishment of an eternal Kingdom on the earth. Jesus' promised return is our blessed hope which helps us to be faithful in our work, joyful in trials, and holy in our lives. It is not an inconsequential teaching in Scripture, yet many of the precise details will remain a mystery to us. We will not require members to hold a certain view on end times and do not wish to be divisive on these matters.
