Gospel

What is the Gospel?

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

The Gospel – or “Good News” – is this:

The one, true and holy God created us in his image that we might love, serve and enjoy fellowship with Him. Genesis 1:26-28

But each of us has sinned. Romans 3:23 As a result we are separated from Him and fully deserve His judgment, which is death. Romans 6:23

Because He loves us, God sent His son, Jesus, to become a man, live a perfect life, and willingly die on the cross, taking on Himself the punishment for the sins of those who seek God’s forgiveness. John 1:14; Romans. 3:21-26, 5:12-21

Christ rose from the dead, showing that God accepted Jesus’ sacrifice on our behalf and that God has the power to raise us from the dead. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

God calls us to repent of our sins and trust in Christ alone for the forgiveness of our sins. If we repent, we are born again into a new life. John 3:16
