It's at the very heart of why we exist as a church.
The word gospel means “good news.” And of course if there is good news then we can assume something is bad or wrong that has now been made good or right. The entire Bible is the revelation of God’s good news. We were made to be in relationship with God, but are separated from God by our sin. The result of sin is death and all it brings… fear, anxiety, emptiness, guilt and dread.
In love, God sent His only Son, who was without sin, to pay the penalty for our sin. He died in the sinner's place on the cross, was buried, and rose three days later. When a person turns from pursuing life apart from God, and turns to God believing that Jesus died in their place and rose again, their sins are forgiven and they are clothed in Christ’s righteousness, restored to relationship with God both now and forevermore.
The gospel is the good news about what Jesus Christ has done to reconcile sinners to God.
