The gospel is the good news about what Jesus has done to reconcile sinners to God

GOD

God is the loving creator and sovereign ruler of all things. He is perfectly holy, just, and alone is worthy of all worship. He created mankind to live under His loving rule and find complete joy in relationship with Him.  (Gen 1:1, Col. 1:16-18, Rev. 4:11, Rom. 1:20)

MAN

All of humanity has willfully rebelled against God’s loving rule. As a result, mankind is in bondage to sin, subject to death and judgment, and can do nothing to earn forgiveness or restore his relationship with God.  (Rom. 3:10-12, 23, 6:23, Heb. 9:27, Eph. 2:8-9, Titus 3:5-6)

CHRIST

In His love, God sent His Son – the man, Jesus Christ. He lived a sinless life, died to take God’s wrath in our place, and rose from the dead to bring forgiveness and new life to all who will believe. (1 Pet. 3:18, 2 Cor. 5:21, 1 Pet. 1:3)

RESPONSE

Only by grace through faith in Jesus can mankind have a restored relationship with God. God calls everyone everywhere to turn from their rebellion and depend on Jesus’ death for the forgiveness of sins and His resurrection for new life. (Mark 1:15, Acts 20:21, Rom. 10:9-10, John 3:36)
