What We Believe: Eternal State of Man

April 12, 2015 Series: What We Believe

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:16–5:10

What's Next?
We believe that the spirits of the saved at death go immediately to be with Christ in heaven; that at His second coming their works will be judged and rewards determined at the Judgment Seat of Christ, that the spirits of the unsaved at death descend immediately into Hades, which holds these spirits until the final day of judgment, at which time their bodies will be raised from the grave, judged, and cast into Hell, the place of final and everlasting punishment.
