We Believe: The Last Days

"We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory." (Articles of Faith 1:10)

God will fulfill all the prophecies spoken by the voice of His Prophets, whether ancient or modern.  The House of Israel, God's covenant people of the Old Testament, who have been scattered because of wickedness and unbelief, will be gathered from all parts of the earth.  The Temple at Jerusalem will be rebuilt and a New Jerusalem will be established in America in preparation for Christ's Second coming and the Millenium.  The earth will be cleansed and Christ will come to reign over the earth in peace and righteousness.
