The Gospel is that God the King, has come near to us in Jesus, to establish his Kingdom on earth as in heaven. Everyone who believes in and follows him can be forgiven of their sins and enjoy eternal life.
Jesus calls us to follow him by turning away from our sin, trusting in him as our Savior, and living to obey him as our Lord.
As our Prophet, Jesus proclaims the Word of God to us. As our Priest, Jesus prays to the Father on our behalf. As our King, Jesus rules over the world, making all things new.
Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins, resurrected from the grave to give us new life, and ascended to Heaven to reign as our King.
According to God’s plan, although he had done nothing wrong, Jesus was handed over by the Jewish leaders to be crucified by the Romans.
By the grace of God, we confess Jesus as Lord and believe that God raised him from the dead.
It is turning our hearts and minds away from sin and towards the God who can forgive us and make us new.
It is trusting in Jesus alone and what he has done for our salvation.
Justification is the gracious act of God where he declares believers not guilty, but in right standing with him because of Jesus.
Adoption is when God makes us his sons and daughters through faith in Jesus Christ.
