We are not the people who believe

"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. 

And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,

'See, the home of God is among mortals.
He will dwell with them;
they will be his peoples,
and God himself will be with them;
he will wipe every tear from their eyes.
Death will be no more;
mourning and crying and pain will be no more,
for the first things have passed away.” 

And the one who was seated on the throne said, 
'See, I am making all things new.'”-Revelation 21:1-5 (NRSV)

"We are NOT the people who believe
that one day God will come back to earth
and take all the GOOD folks
and take them somewhere ELSE.

We believe what the BIBLE says:
that one day God WILL come back
and FINISH what God has started."
-Rev. Jon Middendorf, 11/8/15
