We believe in the "blessed hope," which is the personal, pre-millennial, pre-tribulational, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, which is known as the rapture of the New Testament saints. We also believe in the personal, visible, premillennial and glorious return of Christ to the earth with His saints at the end of the Great Tribulation. This phase of His coming is known as the revelation of Jesus Christ. When He returns to earth with His saints, we believe that the Lord Jesus will establish His Millennial Kingdom and will reign for one thousand years. This is a literal reign upon the earth in fulfillment of the Old Testament Messianic promises (Titus 2:13; I Thessalonians 4:13-17; John 14:3; Revelation 19:11-21, 2:1-6).
