What is the Gospel?

The Gospel is the good news of all that God has done to save us through His Son Jesus Christ.

The Gospel is Good News for the entire world.

Gospel means ‘good news’ and is the greatest news possible for a world that cannot escape the reality of suffering, sin, and death. The Gospel is a message about who Jesus is and what He has accomplished by His life, death, and resurrection from the dead. In Christ, God has done for us what we could not do for ourselves. The reality is that we have all turned away from God. Every one of us has rejected His rightful place in our lives as Lord and King and Creator. We have all fallen short of His perfect righteousness.

Alone in our sin, we are separated from God and rightly deserve His eternal punishment. But God, who is rich in mercy, sent Jesus His one and only Son to save us. Jesus lived the life of perfect obedience that we could not live. On the Cross, Jesus died the death that we actually deserve because of our sin. On the third day after the crucifixion, Jesus was raised from the dead in glory as the King of Kings who has conquered sin and death. He is alive now! And he lives to bring salvation to all of those who simply turn from their sins and place their trust in Him alone.

God is offering Jesus’ perfect work on the cross to forgive, restore, redeem, and rescue all of us. He is offering you a new life of joy and relationship with God now, and eternal life to continue in heaven forever with God. If you are not a believer in Jesus, will you confess and repent of your sins and receive His grace today?

Receive God’s gift of salvation.
