What is the Kingdom of God?

The Kingdom of God is the most important thing going on today. Jesus taught that we should pray for it, seek it above all else and preach it to all the nations. The Kingdom of God began with the first coming of Jesus and will be fully realized in his second coming. In between we live in the already-not yet kingdom. When Jesus returns he will judge the living and the dead and everyone who ever lived will spend eternity in either heaven or hell. The decisive factor is not whether we did enough good works, but rather if our names are written in the book of life. This happens when we put our trust in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.
