Articles of Faith: Resurrection And Return Of Christ


We believe in, and accept the sacred Scriptures upon these subjects at their face abd full value. Of the Resurrection, we believe that Christ rose bodily "the third day according to the Scriptures;" that He ascended "to the right hand of the throne of God;" that "this same Jesus which was taken from you into Heaven" -- bodily, personally and visibly; that the "dead in Christ shall rise first;" that the living saints "shall all be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump;" that the "Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His Father, David;" and that "Christ shall reign a thousand years in righteousness until He hath put all enemies under His feet." We believe in the "blessed hope," which is the personal, imminent, pre-tribulation and pre- millennial coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
