The Gospel We Proclaim

As we introduce you to our church we wish to tell you first the most important thing about the gospel we proclaim. The word gospel means good news. It is the basic message of the Bible. However, in order to understand the good news God has for us, we must first know the bad news which the Bible reveals.

The Bad News

The Bible tells us that God is holy, that he cannot even stand to look at sin. The Bible also proclaims that men – all men – are sinners. This means that we cannot save ourselves or do anything pleasing to God, because men are naturally “dead in their trespasses and sins,” and “those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” Therefore it is plain that men cannot reach God by means of their good works or even by religious deeds, for “all our righteous deeds are like filthy rags.” On the contrary, the Bible tells us sin deserves the wrath and righteous judgment of God forever in hell.

The Good News

Since we cannot approach God, or be accepted by him, on the basis of our own good deeds (for we have none), how then can we be saved from his wrath? Here begins the good news. The good news is that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners. By his perfect life of righteousness and by his atoning death on the cross to pay the penalty of sin, sinners can become acceptable to God. But you must turn from your sin and trust in Jesus alone. No one else can save you, for there is only one mediator between God and man-Christ Jesus.
