EVERYTHING IS ABOUT THE GOSPEL
The gospel is the good news of God’s grace invading the darkness of this world. It is the grand narrative of creation, fall, redemption and consummation ordained by God and orchestrated through the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. Christ’s crucifixion is the heart of the gospel. His resurrection is the power of the gospel. His ascension is the glory of the gospel.
Our response to the gospel is ultimately what determines our salvation.
Salvation does not come about by going to a church, giving money to religious causes or serving on a ministry team. Salvation is all about God’s favor from beginning to end. Even the desire to follow Jesus begins with God (John 6:44). We bring nothing to the table, but our sin and an understanding of our utter helplessness without God. We admit that we are sinners and we confess those sins to the only One who can change us, in so doing agreeing with God’s view of right and wrong. The Bible reveals that God by His incredible grace saves us from our sins and saves us to eternal life (Eph. 2:8-9). He changes our standing from sinner to saint (2 Cor. 5:17) and starts us on an incredible journey filled with next steps through which the Holy Spirit will make us more and more like Jesus (2 Cor. 3:17).
We would love to help you meet Jesus and experience salvation personally. Let us know how we can help.
