What is the Gospel? 
The question “What is the Gospel?” is perhaps the most important question a person can ask. The word Gospel literally means “good news.” It is the plan that God has designed to save sinful humans from eternal separation from Him. 

The gospel is the joyful message from God that leads us to salvation. 

GOD                                                           

God is is our Creator. He is loving, holy, and just. One day he will execute perfect justice against all sin. John 1:3

MAN                                                           

People are made in the image of God. We are beautiful and amazing creatures with dignity, worth, and value. But through our wilful, sinful rebellion against God we have turned from being his children to his enemies. Still, all people have the capacity to be in a restored loving relationship with the living God. Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23

CHRIST                                                       

Christ is the Son of God, whose sinless life gave him the ability to become the perfect sacrifice. Through his death on the cross, he ransomed sinful people. Christ’s death paid for the sins of all who come to him in faith. Christ’s resurrection from the dead is the ultimate vindication of the truth of these claims. ! Timothy 2:5

RESPONSE                                                   

The response God requires from us is to acknowledge our sin, repent, and believe in Christ. So we turn from sin, especially the sin of unbelief, and turn to God in faith with the understanding that we will follow him the rest of our days.  Romans 5:8; Romans 10:9-10;13
