What about the end times?

We need to begin by stating that we believe that Jesus will come again. It was one of the things he taught his disciples and was a definite hope for the early church. Whether Jesus returns tomorrow or at a time beyond our life, he will return. The early church had believed His coming would be soon, and they greeted one another with the word “Maranatha” (“Our Lord, come!”). We also believe that we need to be prepared for His coming, whenever it happens.

The interpretations of the end times have been many and varied. We believe that we need to be about the task that God has set us and leave the future in the hands of God.

In 2 Corinthians 5:18, Paul writes, “And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him

We would rather focus on sharing the good news about Christ and his saving power than on preaching something of which we are not sure and is not Christ centred. While we do not preach about the end times on Sunday morning we are currently studying it in our Bible Studies where together we can learn what it has to say to us.
