What is the Gospel?

The Gospel is the joyous declaration that God is redeeming the world through Christ and that He calls everyone everywhere to repent from sin and trust Jesus Christ for salvation.

Each of us has sinned against God, breaking His law and rebelling against His rule, and the penalty for our sin is death and hell.

But because of His love, God sent His Son, Jesus, to live for His people’s sake, the perfect, obedient life God requires and to die on the cross in our place for our sin.

On the third day, Christ rose bodily from the grave and now reigns in heaven, offering forgiveness, righteousness, resurrection, and eternal blessedness in God’s presence to everyone who repents of sin and trusts solely in Him for salvation.


To hear another way of describing the Gospel, we encourage you to read the following presentation entitled, Two Ways to Live, brought to you by Matthias Media.

There are many ways you can choose to live your life, but from God’s perspective there are only two ways. We hope that you can find the truth about God and about eternal life. There is only one way to God, through Jesus Christ. Have you repented of your sins and trusted in Christ for your salvation? Your soul is too important to ignore the way of salvation.
