What Is The "Gospel"?

The gospel is the "good news" that Christ died for our sins and God raised Him from the dead (1 Cor. 15:1-4). It shows us: 
  1. We are sinners (Rom. 1 - 3) 
  2. The penalty for our sin is death (eternal separation from God: 2 Thess. 1:5-10; Rom. 6:23; Gen. 2:17) 
  3. Christ has paid our penalty, in our place, and 
  4. His payment for our sin was effective, because God raised Him from the dead. 
The gospel is the power of God unto salvation (Rom. 1:16). Faith in Christ's death and resurrection for our sins saves us from just, eternal damnation, and unto eternal life with God. This is the "good news", or "gospel".

The Gospel

Have you heard Christ died for our sins, and God raised Him from the dead? Did you know God saves you from hell and gives you eternal life through faith in this finished work alone, not your merits (Jn. 3:16; 1 Cor. 15:1-3; Eph. 2:8-10; 2 Thess. 1:8-9)? This is so man cannot boast, and God alone gets the glory (Eph. 2:8-9).


The grand purpose of creation is to bring glory and pleasure to God in Christ (Eph. 1:1-10; Rev. 4:11). The gospel of Christ's death and resurrection for our sins, achieves this goal by magnifying God's grace and mercy towards undeserving sinners. The purpose of faithguard, is to glorify God, by defending and confirming the gospel of Jesus Christ.
