Jesus, the Risen Lord

The gospel is the good news about who Jesus is and what He has done to rescue sinners from judgment and reconcile them back to God! Jesus died in our place as the Sinless Substitute. On the cross, He absorbed the wrath of God on sin making a way for sinners to be made right with God. But the death of Jesus is only a portion of the good news. Three days later, Jesus defeated the curse of sin by overcoming death and rising from…

Jesus, the Sinless Substitute

Having laid the foundation of God’s loving and righteous rule, and having seen man’s rebellion against our God and deserving of His divine judgment, we’re now in the position to consider the central message of the Bible – the gospel. The gospel is the good news about who Jesus is and what He has done to rescue sinners from judgment and reconcile them back to God! THE SINLESS SUBSTITUTE Though humanity deserved nothing less than condemnation and eternal separation from God, in His…

Rebellious Creature and Condemned Sinner

As a church, we are seeking to grow in knowing, understanding, and sharing the gospel with others. This simple framework is designed to help us in our conversations: God. Man. Christ. Response. We’ve considered how the Gospel is rooted in the reality that God is the loving creator and righteous ruler of all. As His creation, we were designed to find our joy, satisfaction, and life in a relationship with Him, submitting to His good rule over us (Revelation 4:11). The Reality of Man’S CONDITION Although we…

Our Loving Creator and Righteous Ruler

Over the last few months, we have been focusing in on our efforts to know, understand, and share the gospel with others. The Gospel is the message that God uses to save people from sin and to reconcile them to Himself (Romans 1:16; 2 Corinthians 5:20). Since this is the message His ambassadors carry into this world, we desire to be faithful to it. In our efforts to explain this message, keep in mind these 4 key ideas – GOD. MAN. CHRIST.…

Evangelism Initiative

We believe that the local church is God’s primary means of getting the message of the Gospel to the world. Since the New Testament indicates that the proclamation of the gospel is the responsibility of each member of the body, then we want to commit to understand and proclaim the Gospel locally, nationally, and globally. As a church, we call this priority intentional evangelism. We lovingly proclaim the gospel to all kinds of people and call them to respond in repentance…

Evangelism Tool

As members, we are called to help each other be the faithful ambassadors of Jesus we should be. Each one of us should know the Gospel and be able to present it to others. Of course, our circumstances, personalities, and gifts will vary, but if you are a follower of Jesus, you should know the message of Christ, and be able to explain it faithfully and clearly. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore…

Making Disciples

Matthew 28:19-20 is the heart of the primary assignment Jesus gave to his disciples. This was the one thing that He wanted his followers to do in his absence. And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all…
