Our Message is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The gospel is the good news of God’s grace invading the darkness of this world. It is the grand narrative of creation, fall, redemption and consummation ordained by God and orchestrated through the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. Christ’s crucifixion (when He died on the cross) is the heart of the gospel. His resurrection (when He raised from the dead) is the power of the gospel. His ascension (when He went to heaven) is the glory of the gospel.
Jesus Christ's death is the payment for His children's sins as a sacrifice to God. It satisfies the demands of God’s holy justice and appeases His holy wrath. It also demonstrates His mysterious love and reveals His amazing grace. Jesus Christ is the only way to God. There is no other name by which men can be saved. At the heart of all sound doctrine (Christian practice) is the cross of Jesus Christ and the infinite privilege that redeemed sinners have in glorifying God because of what He has accomplished. Therefore, we want all that takes place in our hearts, churches and ministries to proceed from and be related to the gospel.
Because we are thankful for this truth, together we make this message known to those in our circles of influence and help validate it by our actions and our love toward one another and the creation.
