Heaven:  A Scriptural Study

What do we know about heaven?

The Bible doesn't tell us everything about heaven but scripture does provide a wealth of information that paints a beautiful picture of what is to come. 

The Heaven: A Scriptural Study classes focus on what God's word reveals to us abut heaven with the understanding there are many mysteries that will be made known when His plan is complete.  The apostle Paul who saw heaven and said, "But I do know that I was caught up to paradise and heard things so astounding that they cannot be expressed in works, things no human is allowed to tell" (2 Corinthians 12:2).  We eagerly anticipate the wonderful heavenly home that awaits us!
