The question of how close are we to the end of days piques the curiosity of people around the world. Even the scientists are moving the doomsday clock closer and closer to midnight.

Pastor Brian Bill will tackle the question, "What will we do before Jesus return?" and gives a charge to each of us with the urgency of telling lost people about the Lord in this timely teaching.
