A majority of evangelical leaders believe that Jesus Christ will return to earth and then reign with his followers for 1,000 years, a new survey shows.
This end times theology is called premillennialism and 65 percent of surveyed evangelical leaders identify with it.As part of its monthly poll, the National Association of Evangelicals surveyed its board of directors, which include the CEOs of denominations and representatives of a broad array of evangelical organizations, on their eschatological beliefs.
“Itâ€™s in our human nature to want to prepare ourselves â€“ physically, emotionally, spiritually â€“ for what might be ahead,” said NAE President Leith Anderson.
The poll, released this week, found that 13 percent of those surveyed are amillennialists â€“ believing that the non-literal millennial reign of Christ is happening now as Christ reigns at the right hand of the Father.
