We expect from heaven our Saviour Jesus Christ, who will change our body of humiliation and make it conform to his own body of glory; and
we believe that, in that day, the dead who are in Christ, coming out from their tombs at his voice, and the faithful then living on the earth, all transformed through his power, will be taken up together into the clouds to meet him, and that thus we shall always be with our Saviour.—Confession of the Evangelical Free Church of Geneva, 1848, Art. xiii.
