We at Bytown Baptist Church believe that the church age, the age that started at Pentecost (Acts 2) and that continues to this day, will not end with the complete conversion of the world, but rather is quickly growing in evil, bringing judgment upon itself, while there grows a great apostasy in the professing Christian body.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will come to remove His church before the 7-year Tribulation,  in which He will execute wrath and judgment upon the Earth (climaxing at the Battle of Armageddon).  This personal and pre-millennial advent is the blessed hope set before us in the Gospel for which we should be constantly looking.  

We teach that it is during the 7-years of tribulation that the Antichrist will be revealed, first making a covenant with unbelieving Israel, and then turning against and persecuting them.  The tribulation will be a time of great trouble and distress in which the human race will experience "the wrath of the Lamb: for the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand." (Revelation 6:16,17).

We also profess that the Lord Jesus Christ will return at the end of the 7-year Tribulation to introduce the Millennial Kingdom, at which point Israel shall be converted and restored to their own land and the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord.  While the Church Age continues,the Lord has left us a commission to be His witnesses, and to preach the Gospel of the Grace of God to every creature.
