We Believe...

The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life. No one has immortality except God.

The Bible teaches that there are two deaths. The first is temporary—like sleep—and will end when the righteous dead are again brought to life at Christ’s literal, physical return to earth. They, along with the righteous living, will be taken to heaven and will reign there for one-thousand years. After the thousand years, the righteous will return (with God and the New Jerusalem) to this earth.

Then the wicked dead will be raised to review their life’s record, their guilt, and their sentence. And God will perform His strange act—He will carry out the sentence—He will destroy the wicked. They will be consumed completely with fire. They will never live again. The earth will be cleansed and made like new. The righteous will inherit the earth and live eternally.

The doctrine of the immortal soul is Satan’s masterpiece of deception. With it, he insinuates himself into God's position as he counterfeits the work of the Holy Spirit—using demons to masquerade as spirits of the dead to gain access to the hearts and minds of men and women. This error will be fully developed in the last days of earth’s history, and through spiritualism Satan will succeed in uniting the whole world in wondering after the beast and in worship to its image.

Except there will remain a faithful few who will remain true to the word of God.
