In the final session of the Firm Foundations course, we are looking at the next life: what will things be like at the resurrection? Do we “go to heaven” when we die? What will the new creation be like?
People often wonder: “What will heaven be like?” In this sermon we have a glimpse of what the new creation will be like. Are we looking forward to the new creation, and living in line with the way things will be one day?

The majority of believe believe that there is some kind of eternal life – but what does it actually look like? There’s a lot of confusion on this even among Christians. In the final session of the creed we look at what eternal life will be like.
This is the final part of the course! You can do the whole course here on the website.
What is heaven going to be like? I’m sure almost everyone has an opinion on what lies beyond death. But what does the Bible have to say about it? In this final session of the What is Christianity course, we see how what the Bible says about the future draws everything else together.
Coming up next…
This is the last session of the What is Christianity? course 😢 But – don’t be sad! There’s still lots more to learn, and there’ll be lots more on Understand the Bible! Be happy! 😊

In this session we finish off looking at the Apostle’s Creed: what does eternal life look like, and what comfort should we take from it?
There are two questions in this session. They’re based on the final lines of the Apostles’ Creed, “I believe in the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting”.
- Q57 “What comfort does the resurrection of the body offer you?”
- Q58 “What comfort do you receive from the article about the life everlasting?”
A lot of people have questions about what eternal life / heaven looks like. The Bible doesn’t tell us everything we want to know – yet at the same time, there are things we can know. And it’s not about floating around in the clouds with a harp!

Jesus disabuses us of our notions about what life in the future will be like – it’s so much more than we think, not less!
