FIRST-PERSON: Thankful for the Cooperative Program

What is the nature of the millennium and when does it occur in God’s divine timeline? Is the rapture an aspect of the Second Coming or is it a separate event? How much continuity exists between the present created order and the new heavens and new earth?

FIRST-PERSON: Praying for a new college missionary movement

TIGERVILLE, S.C. (BP) -- Historians call the final quarter of the 19th century the Gilded Age, a term originally coined by Mark Twain.
