The Gospel of Jesus Christ Changes Everything.
We Are Ready To Help!
B I B L E
The Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel is not the gospel of men, but the gospel of God. By it, the revealed truth of God's love is manifested and judgment on sin is sure and the certain defeat of death and the devil. There is nothing in time or eternity more certain than what Jesus Christ accomplished on the cross. Due to the gospel of Jesus Christ, hope for humanity is most relevant and very much alive.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is ground zero for humanity and eternity. God the Father made redemption through the blood of His only Begotten Son the foundation by which we stand reconciled unto HIM. There is no hope for anyone apart from the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the pressing issue between God and humanity.
The Heart of The Gospel
There is only one position in which we are right with God, and that is in Christ Jesus by virtue of is atoning work at the cross. He came to this world to destroy the work of Satan and the power of sin. Sin is a matter of reality that breads the lie that we are sufficient in ourselves. It is the very fact of sin that explains why Christ came to this world; and sin is the explicit cause of all sorrow and death. Yet, it is in Jesus Christ only that death, sin and Satan are defeated... thus, the Gospel of Jesus Christ changes everything for the redeemed.
The heart of reality is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is not the baptism of the Holy Spirit that changes people, but the power of the gospel of Christ. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is not an experience separate from Christ; it is the evidence of Christ in you. More than anything, the lack of knowledge of the Gospel of Christ has done more to provoke Christians to substitute the Gospel of Christ for religious and/or political causes. Beware, lest your preferences persuades your doctrinal belief and shipwrecks your devotion to Christ and His Gospel. Amen!
