The Rapture and Subsequent Events


We believe in the pre-tribulational appearing of Christ (commonly referred to as the “Rapture”), an event which can occur at any moment, and at that moment the dead in Christ shall be raised in glorified bodies, the living in Christ shall be given glorified bodies without tasting death, and all shall be caught up to meet the Lord in the air before the seven years of the Tribulation.

1 Thessalonians 4:1318; 1 Corinthians 15:4244, 5154; Philippians 3:2021; Revelation 3:10

We believe the Tribulation, which follows the Rapture of the Church, will be culminated by the second coming of Christ to earth in power and great glory to sit upon the throne of David and to establish the millennial kingdom.
