What is the Gospel?
The Character of God
(Romans 1:18-20, 2:1-16, 3:22-24, Isaiah 43:6-7)
God is the just and gracious Creator of all things.
Realize that we belong to Him, are accountable to Him, and are created to
The Sinfulness of Man
(Romans 1:21-25, 3:9-20, 3:23, 6:23)
We are each created by God, but we are all corrupted by sin.
Admit areas of rebellion, be honest with God about sin, and turn from it.
The Sufficiency of Christ
(Romans 3:21-26, 4:25, 5:6-10, 5:18, 8:1-4)
Jesus Christ alone is able to remove our sin and reconcile us to God through
His death. He alone satisfies the wrath of God for our sins.
Recognize that we are helpless to be reconciled with God apart from Jesus
The Necessity of Faith
(Romans 1:17, 3:20-31, 4:22-25, 6:11-14, 8:10-11, 10:9-13)
We are reconciled to God only through faith in Jesus. There is nothing we can
do to become right with God.
Faith that leads to salvation involves turning from sin and self-sufficiency.
We turn to Jesus and trust in Him as Lord, confess Him as Lord and Savior.
The Urgency of Eternity
(John 3:14-16, 36, John 10:27-30, 17:3, 1 Timothy 1:16-17, Hebrews 9:12, 1
Our eternal destiny is dependent on our response to Jesus.
Cry out to God to save you of your sins, put your faith in Jesus Christ and
confess Him as Savior and Lord.
