THE GOSPEL

We believe the Gospel is the glorious good news that Christ, the Righteous One, saves sinners (1 Tim. 1:15).  The entirety of the gospel message is found within the person and work of Jesus Christ.  Firstly, that Christ being God came down in the flesh, being born of a virgin and dwelt among men (Jn. 1-14).  Secondly, while on earth, Jesus lived a perfect sinless life under God's law, a life that you or I should have lived, but were unable to do so. (Mtt. 5:17, Heb. 4:15).  Thirdly, Jesus Christ in obedience to the will of the Father, went to the cross willingly, being crucified and killed for the sake of sinners, in effect redeeming them from the curse of the law (Gal. 3:13) and paying the penalty for their sin debt.  Fourthly, after the death of Christ, he was buried and three days later, he was physically resurrected from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit, as a witness that Christ was triumphant over sin and death (Mtt. 28, Mk. 16, Lk. 24, Jn. 20).  And finally, Jesus Christ ascended into heaven (Acts 1:9-11) to return again in full glory (Lk. 21:25-28, Acts 1:11) to judge all of humanity in righteousness and consummate the establishment of his eternal kingdom.
