Simply stated, the Gospel is good news. Mark Dever in The Gospel and Personal Evangelism states:
The good news is that the one and only God, who is holy, made us in his image to know him. But we sinned and cut ourselves off from him. In his great love, God became a man in Jesus, lived a perfect life, and died on the cross, thus fulfilling the law himself and taking on himself the punishment for the sins of all those who would ever turn and trust in him. He rose again from the dead, showing that God accepted Christ’s sacrifice and that God’s wrath against us had been exhausted. He now calls us to repent of our sins and trust in Christ alone for our forgiveness. If we repent of our sins and trust in Christ, we are born again into a new life, an eternal life with God.
August Gate Church holds firmly to the fact that the only hope men and women have for life is found in the Gospel (Romans 1:16). Without it, hope is empty and life is meaningless. The Gospel is the central message of the entire Bible and the central message of the church. It’s the foundational purpose we center ourselves upon.
