Heaven: God's Eternal Goodness To You

Have you ever heard someone respond to something delightful like a bite of chocolatey dessert or a pampering treatment with the words, “This is just heavenly”? The truth is, that common comparison is far from the reality of what heaven will be like. In this message at Saddleback Church, Pastor Rick Warren shares the facts about heaven as a physical place reserved for God’s family, rather than as a dream or state of being. You’ll learn what heaven is, what heaven is not, and what we’ll do once we get there.
