The question “what happens after you die?” matters because we will all die. It is an important question and how we understand the answers impacts our current lives today. There are also many related questions such as: do we have bodies in heaven? Is there an intermediate state? What about purgatory? and more. Many questions are addressed as we discuss the Scriptures. This series will examine a few central questions: * What happens after you die? A biblical framework * What is Heaven Really Like? * Is Hell for Real? * How do Heaven & Hell impact my life today?

Handling Opposition (to Heaven & Hell)

Are Jesus-followers to expect difficulties, insults, rejection, awkwardness and opposition?  How does do the New Testament Scriptures speak into our processing and perspective of opposition?  If what Jesus taught about heaven and hell is real then those beliefs are not popular in our city and would be opposed. What do we do with that?

Is Hell For Real?

Is hell just an old-fashioned idea for the intolerant?  What does God, through the authors of the Bible, actually say about hell?  Many are surprised that Jesus discusses hell the most.  In this teaching, we humbly discuss hell an examine various questions.

What is Heaven Really Like?

Is heaven spirits floating in the clouds?  Are we to get excited about harps, clouds, flying babies, and cream cheese for eternity?  In this teaching, Brett examines Heaven from a biblical perspective.  Note: a portion of this teaching involved Q&A as well as short videos that helped to communicate the heart of the teaching.  The podcast will be beneficial but will miss some of these elements.
