Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Community

‹‹ Return

We are now in the "in between times." We can know the present reality of salvation in Christ, even though the Kingdom of God is not yet complete in our world, our church, or our hearts. The fulfillment of the Kingdom of God is associated with Jesus' second coming in power and glory. Our hope is that all humanity and all creation will be united in God's love in the fullness of time, and that "nothing, not even death, shall separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (BCP, p. 862; see Rom 8:38-39). See Atonement; see Eschatology; see Heaven; see Redeemer; see Righteousness; see Soteriology.
