Where Is Heaven, and What Are Some Major Misconceptions About Heaven?

Over the years, I’ve found that it’s a common misconception even among Christians that the present Heaven, where Christians go when we die, is the same place we will live forever. In fact, when we die we go to be with Christ, which is wonderful, but we are incomplete, in a pre-resurrected state, anticipating Christ’s return to earth, and our resurrections. As I develop in my book Heaven, the place we’ll live forever will be where God comes down to dwell with us, on the New Earth (Revelation 21:1-3).

I share more about this in the following video, filmed earlier this year when I visited Watermark Community Church. Pastor Todd Wagner and I sat down and discussed “Where is Heaven?”, as well as some common misconceptions about Heaven.
