We Believe 30: The Final Judgement

All people, believers and unbelievers alike, will stand before Christ's judgement seat where all that they have done will be openly manifested. For believers the Judgement Seat is not a seat of condemnation because Christ has taken their condemnation upon himself. Rather, it is a seat of evaluation where believers, who are justified fully in Christ apart from their works, will be graciously rewarded for their works of service to Christ and others. The promise of a future reward should stimulate God's people to self-denying service to their Redeemer.

Read 2 Corinthians 5:6-6:2
