A Heavenly Inheritance!
our hope and our desire is in the Lord Jesus Christ, to be lifted up to heaven
upon His glorious return. We hope for the day that we will go home, finally and

Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to
a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
