10.1 The return of Jesus Christ

In close similarity to the Apostolicum, the Second Article of Faith professes: "I believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, our Lord, who ... ascended into heaven. He is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, from where He will return."

This profession is further expanded in the Ninth Article of Faith: "I believe that the Lord Jesus will return as surely as He ascended into heaven and that He will take to Himself the firstfruits of the dead and living who have hoped for and were prepared for His coming."

Jesus Christ will return–this is a core statement of the gospel. Ever since His ascension into heaven, the Apostles of the early and latter time have proclaimed the return of the Lord. To be accepted by Him at this event is the goal of faith of New Apostolic Christians.
