What is
the Gospel?

Gospel literally means “Good News.” But to fully answer the question, “What is the gospel?” we should first consider our lives without the gospel. Even for those who appear to have it all together, the truth is that we have all rejected God to live in rebellion to Him and His will. Because this is true of each of us, we all deserve God’s punishment for our defiance and failure. Here, in the midst of hopeless despair, is where the gospel begins. The gospel tells us that, despite our disobedience, God Himself has provided a substitute to suffer the consequences of our turning against Him. The substitute was given to live the righteous life that we could never live, and to die the rebel’s death that we deserve. This substitute is Jesus Christ. The gospel invites us to surrender our lives to Him, turn to Him, and trust in Him for the forgiveness of our rebellion. The Good News is for our great joy and to God’s glory. Jesus is the Good News and His life, death, and resurrection is our New Hope. small anchor image
