WHAT IS THE GOSPEL?
With our mission as a church of “igniting a passion to follow Jesus,” everything we believe, speak, and do as a church points back to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Gospel simply means good news. It is the good news that despite the fact that every one of us stands condemned before a holy God because of our sins—which is bad news—Jesus Christ died on the cross as a substitute who took the penalty for our sins and was resurrected as the victor over sin and death. For those who turn from their sin (repentance) and trust in who Jesus was and what he did (faith) they are forgiven, made a new creation, and adopted into God’s family.
Our goal with this page is to equip you and encourage you to be sharing the gospel and your lives in word and deed. Would you join us in praying this as a church body:
Open a door,
Open my mouth,
Open their heart.
