“Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die.” Loretta Lynn sang that country hymn in the 60s. Allison Kraus re-released it in the 90s. In a way, we all sing it silently in the everyday ways we live.
What is heaven actually like? Will I have a job? A body? An actual house? Heaven…is it a geographical place? Or just a state of mind? Is it just for people…or are our pets there too?
Do you believe in heaven? If you do, does that mean you also believe in hell? I guess Christians all believe in it right? And they probably think they’re the only ones who are going to be there. So what does that mean for other people? For non-Christians? Heaven is a hot topic. People claim to have seen it and even communicated with people who are theoretically in it. God gave a picture of Heaven to the writers in the Bible. Sometimes it’s detailed and specific. Other times, it’s metaphorical and fuzzy. It offers definitive hope, yet leaves room for surprises and interpretations.
In this series we will talk about life after life, what it means to go to heaven and live there for all eternity, examine the picture that God gave John, the writer of Revelation and see if what we hear, what we think, and how we feel matches with God’s words.Sermon Archive
What Makes Heaven So Wonderful?

Heaven will be more than we can even dream or imagine. If you are in Christ, then He is preparing a place for you to spend eternity with Him. It will be a place of beauty and perfection. A place where you will be fully alive. What we do on this earth impacts our eternal home. To know Christ and to make Him known should be the goal of our life; heaven is our reward. Are you living each day for Christ? Are you investing your time, money and energy into furthering His Kingdom and living for His glory? The best is yet to come in your life. Trust God, and live every day for Him.More Details
