The Gospel of Jesus Christ

The word “gospel” means a good or joyful message, and it means good news for you!

  • The gospel is the demonstration of God’s love for you
  • The gospel is forgiveness and atonement of your sins
  • The gospel is the free gift of salvation and everlasting life
  • The gospel is your way to Heaven
  • The gospel is the beginning of your relationship with Almighty God

The Bible says the good news is that God loves you and sent his only Son Jesus Christ to suffer and die on the cross on your behalf. Jesus was the ultimate atoning sacrifice for the sins of the entire world, but only those who believe he died for them will receive forgiveness for their sins and everlasting life – can you believe it?

John 3:16-17
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Romans 3:23
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

The Bible says the good news is that Jesus died, was buried, and rose from the dead the third day, he did this for you – can you believe it?

1 Corinthians 15:1-6
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

The Bible says the good news is that if you sincerely believe in your heart that Jesus died on the cross for your sins, and that through his death, burial, and resurrection you can be forgiven and have everlasting life – if you believe it you can pray to God right now and confess and ask him to forgive you, tell him you believe in what Jesus did for you on the cross and that you want to be forgiven of your sins and saved from Hell (where you will go if your sins are not forgiven) and go to Heaven when you die.

Romans 10:9-13
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

The Bible says the good news is that salvation is a free gift that God offers you, there is nothing you can do to work for it or earn it through being a good person, or joining a religion, etc, the work has already been done for you by Jesus Christ! To get this gift you must believe it and then ask for it to receive it – do you believe it?

Ephesians 2:8-10
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Matthew 11:28-30
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
